The EO App is a mobile application initiated by the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) and would also facilitate round-the-clock connectivity with the administration as well as access by the common citizenry.
The formal launching was done here by the Minister in the presence of Union Secretary PMO Bhaskar Khulbe, Union Secretary DoPT B.P. Sharma, Establishment Officer Rajiv Kumar and other senior officers of Government of India.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Jitendra Singh said, in keeping with the spirit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call for maximum governance, it is the need of the hour to bring hi-tech systems into governance and also enable real-time information with transparency and accountability.
He said, mobile phones are available to virtually everyone in the country and therefore, it is crucial that we move to a mobile platform which is easily accessible anytime, anywhere and to anybody.
Describing the DoPT as the research and development wing of Government of India, Dr Jitendra Singh said, the new App will enable users, including officers, media persons and all stakeholders to stay updated with appointments and postings approved by the Cabinet Committee on Appointments (ACC) as well as vacancies at senior level. The new App, he said, will place all the relevant orders and notifications instantly in the public domain and thus reduce all kinds of unnecessary speculations regarding transfers and postings in the government.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, the EO App is an effective management tool which will empower IAS officers and officers working in Central Staffing Scheme by providing them with personal records such as Annual Performance Appraisal Report (APAR), Immovable Property Return (IPR) and Executive Record (ER) sheet through secured NIC login ID and password.
