The new system is called ‘e-Cabinet’ system through which ministers can use a web-based software to prepare for cabinet meetings, conduct them and review minutes, without having to use paper, reported the Times of India.
With the adoption of e-Cabinet system, the average length of cabinet meetings will be around 30 to 90 minutes. Earlier, the cabinet meetings use to take four to five hours because all the proceedings used to be printed on paper resulting in thousands of pages of documents. But due to this new digital system, time and paper both are getting saved.
Before the beginning of the cabinet session, ministers can access the system to review each agenda. The system keeps information organised by using the multi-user secure solution giving ministers a clear overview of each item under discussion.
Every minister has been provided one secured tablet through which they could access the e-cabinet solution the report said.
