M. Ajit Kumar, Chairman, CBIC has launched the e-Office application in over 500 CGST and Customs offices across India. The e-Office application was launched remotely in the presence of over 800 senior officers of CBIC. Dr Neeta Verma, DG, National Informatics Centre, (NIC) was also present. Over 50,000 officers and staff will use this application making CBIC one of the largest Government departments to automate its internal office procedures.
The CBIC expects e-Office would complement its other IT led reforms which are directly aimed at enhancing the ease of doing business for the trade and industry. The launch of e-Office is one more measure taken by the CBIC in leveraging technology for providing a ‘Faceless, Contactless and Paperless’ indirect Tax administration.
