All the state government offices in Arunachal Pradesh will become paperless by 2021, announced chief minister Pema Khandu recently.
While launching WiFi hotspots for Tawang and Dirang districts at Tawang on Thursday, Khandu said the government has taken steps to fully use the information technology (IT) in governance and by 2021 all government offices will become paperless e-office.
