In line with the ‘Digital India’ initiative, state-owned National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has initiated steps towards digitization by implementing company-wide paperless office to save on expensive office space and paper use.

The initiative will cover all NTPC projects, and offices and will be rolled out in phased manner, helping in optimum utilization of the available space, easy retrieval of old records and promote clean office environment. Digitizing records and printed literature makes it easy to share documents electronically and lowers the temptation to make photocopies.

The company has already introduced e-tender, invoice monitoring system, grievance management and digitized notice boards at all locations. The digitization process in legal, company secretariat and corporate communication has been started in the first phase, comprising more than four million documents. The NTPC house journal has been digitized and app is being developed for internal communication.

NTPC is encouraging work environment in which the use of paper is eliminated or reduced by converting documents into digital form. Going paperless can save money, boost productivity, save space, make documentation and information sharing easier more secure, and help save the environment.
