The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) is on course to digitise all its files and documents and become completely paperless, a statement released by the civic body on Wednesday stated.

As per MCG officials, the civic body has stopped accepting any documents or files in paper form, and of the 75,400 files, 43,017 files have been scanned and uploaded on the MCG servers already.

“Files were often misplaced and were also proving to hinder the working of the MCG. Thus, since April 1, we have completely stopped accepting any files or documents in paper form. Work is on to digitise all files,” SS Rohilla, public relations officer (PRO) of the MCG, said.
