DNA India has a really nice article today about how the state Cabinet of Andhra Pradesh has gone totally paperless and is now using iPads during Cabinet meetings.
Led by Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, his Council of Ministers held the first meeting of what has been dubbed an “eCabinet” yesterday, which is the first of its kind in India.
DNA India says that for the first time, the regular state Cabinet meeting was entirely paperless, with the government members all using iPads during the meeting. The meeting agenda and minutes were also all recorded electronically, and when more detailed discussion and explanation was needed, PowerPoint presentations were used.
According to DNA India, the government of Andhra Pradesh was known as being a pioneering force for eGovernance during Chandrababu’s previous time as Chief Minister from 1995 to 2004.
After a successful trial of the new eCabinet yesterday, the iPads are expected to be a fixture of all Andhra Pradesh state Cabinet meetings from now on.
