E-office made mandatory in K’taka varsities from Mar 1

It has been made mandatory for all the universities in Karnataka to submit files online only by using the ‘e-office’ software platform from March 1.

C.N. Ashwathnarayan, Karnataka Higher Education Minister, has written a letter to the State Additional Chief Secretary, G. Kumar Naik directing the officials of the department to send back the files which arrive in physical format after the proposed March 1 deadline.

In the letter, he has said, “Universities were instructed earlier to submit all the files through e-office. But it has come to my notice that some of the universities have still not implemented e-office despite prior instruction to do so.”

He has added that, though his office was functioning completely based on e-office, letters, files and proposals from universities were still being sent in physical format.

Expressing dissatisfaction over this decision, Ashwathnarayan has said this has defeated the very purpose of implementation of e-office.

The objective of the e-office is to enable speedy delivery of services and bring transparency in the system.

Universities will become irrelevant if the universities do not adapt to the present-day work patterns, the Education Minister added in the letter.

The Minister has also directed to constitute a committee to prepare a report within 15 days on digitalisation, Unified University and College Management System, and National Academic Depository which are being implemented as per the New Education Policy, 2020.
