JK Govt Makes E-Signatures Compulsory in Offices From

In a significant move towards digital transformation, the Jammu and Kashmir government has mandated the use of digital signatures for all official correspondence within its administrative machinery. Effective from June 1, 2024, this directive applies to Administrative Departments, Heads of Departments, Deputy Commissioners, and Managing Directors of various Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), Boards, and Corporations.

This decision aligns with the guidelines set by the Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Government of India. The adoption of digital signatures aims to streamline operations, reduce dependence on physical documents, and enhance cybersecurity measures in the digital realm.

By transitioning to a paperless workflow, the government seeks to bolster efficiency, transparency, and security in its administrative processes. To facilitate the smooth implementation of this mandate, the local e-office support team of JaKeGA and the Information Technology Department will provide necessary assistance and support.

Users are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the implementation guidelines available on the official e-office documentation portal or the handbook issued by JaKeGA. This move underscores the broader national agenda of promoting e-governance and leveraging technology for efficient service delivery.

Overall, the adoption of digital signatures reflects the government’s commitment to embracing modern technology and ensuring the integrity and security of its administrative operations.
