Jaipur: Rajasthan parliamentary affairs minister Rajendra Singh Rathore informed the state assembly on Tuesday that the government would soon introduce file monitoring and file tracking system in 75 departments. The system, under the NIC’s e-Office project, will let people know where their files are in a particular department in the process of a government work. Rathore said that the project will bring transparency in the functioning of government departments in Rajasthan and make government officials accountable. Rathore said all primary government departments in Rajasthan would be connected with the e-Office project by the end of this financial year. Rathore was answering a question during the zero hour in the state assembly on Monday. e-Office project had been introduced in 2011, and only 13 departments were connected to the system by 2013. “There have been 59 lakh communications with people trying to know the status of their files in the past three years. This shows the popularity of the project,” said Rathore.
