Indian Railways takes strides in going paperless! Indian Railways has signed an MoU with RailTel, a Mini Ratna PSU under the Railway Ministry, for the phase 2 execution of NIC e-office. Under this phase, RailTel will register a total of 39,000 users over 34 Divisions of Indian Railways on the NIC e-office platform by 30 June 2020.
According to Railway Ministry, phase 1 for the execution of NIC e-office started with a mandate to complete the work by March 2020. But, the PSU completed the work way ahead of time and successfully created over 50,000 users in 58 units of Indian Railways. Additionally, RailTel also trained the executives to handle the platform in a span of just six months’ time.
A cloud-enabled software, NIC e-office is developed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC). The software is being deployed or hosted from RailTel’s Tier III certified data centres at Secundrabad and Gurugram.
