Hello everyone.
The generation we're living in is digitalized in many fields but what I think is paperless collection of data is not the ideal way.

According to me, being completely paperless is not totally practical because there are still many people who don't know how to operate computers how to feed data into it and how to use the stored data.

Although there are really numerous advantages of being fully paperless like there will be saving of both time and cost and nowadays through the use of AI one can perform time-consuming tasks in just a click, and the data will be stored safely for an infinite point of time one can use the data as and when needed without the fear of being missing but in spite of all of these, because of India's education system which focuses more on theoretical knowledge rather than practical, being totally paperless is not a reality.

Hello everyone, my name is Raj.

My views on the paperless office is that in this world where everything is changing rapidly so the paperless office is acceptable and inevitable. Since almost every office work which can be done on paper can be done on a computer or say electronically. This system provides a secure and time-saving method of doing official work. By this we can send a large amount of data from one part of world another part will one click and almost all the office are using this. It reduces the chance of corruption that can be done on paper but by this, almost every one of the documents can be verified electronically. So this is system is good to accept. There are some issues relating to the working extent of this system it can be done with the help of internet and at least general knowledge of working on the computer a d in rural there is a lack of both the facilities. So the government has to work on that issue.

The paperless office is a reality. But it is not possible to apply in large parameters like Industries, Institution and Any govt bodies. Because many times documents is necessary only in paper. Like properties Documents and many other things. So I think paperless office initiative is good. It will help to curb pollution in Environment. But I think Govt should make completely apply paperless initiative and make Awareness program about those who are not much aware of this.

According to me, the paperless office should be there but it has both negative and positive sides. At one side, it will be developed and technology will enhance with more use as the world is changing into the digital world and it will help in saving more trees and data can be stored more safe and secure with passwords etc. At one time papers will start damaged so I think there should be a paperless office but still some of them not believe in this because yes at one side they have the fear of storing data from being digital and sometimes manual work is more effective because sometimes internet connections or network may stop your work.

So from my point of view, if you have to change your brick office into click office then you should totally upgrade and confidential towards technology more use of technology will help in more effective work.

Hi there. "NOW WE ARE LIVE IN DIGITAL WORLD". As the topic named "paperless" means there is less use of paper or reducibility of use of paper. Yes, I want to say that "Paperless office" really exist but don't get amazed it is adopted by abroad already but not in INDIA. In the case of paperless, there is a use of "DIGITALIZED PAPER" instead of normal paper. digital paper means if you want to send an application to your BOSS then you write the application in MSWORD and send to him through E-MAIL or whatever you prefer.

Obviously, there will be some benefits than the traditional one. Those are

1. Time consume.
2. Less workload.
3. No complexity.
4. Papers will be stored in an organized manner with the help of Database concept.
5. No physical damage etc.

But some demerits are may occur because "100% perfect does not exist".

1. Backup should be required.
2. Machines (Comp) are required.
3. The employee should learn office work including computer work.

I hope you like my thinking on this topic. Thanks for reading.

According to my point of view, a paperless office is just a dream because nowadays apps and technology updated but people still believe in papers because they don't believe in human because nowadays I have seen this cases I give a small example.

I will take an MBA project as an example universities has given guidance to all students to collect project permission letter and certificate from the company here the company should give a certificate it is papers.

It is impossible in a country like India.

Paperless office is possible. Initially we will take some to adopt this new format. But, always a change brings a new revolution.

Now, we have time to take decision, we can save our earth.

If we dnt, then ultimately we have to face it's consequences & that time we will have to comply some more restriction even worse than this system.

We should welcome the new changes for our future generation and for the world to survive.

Thank you.

It is very difficult to maintain a huge database at all times. Sometimes we can arrive at kids and crucial data may be lost in a stack of papers.
