The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr.Jitendra Singh launched the Employees Online (EO) App. EO App is a mobile application of the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT), Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr.Jitendra Singh said that it is the need of the hour to bring in high-tech systems in the governance. Since Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) is the R&D wing of the Government, it acts as a role model to other Ministries/ Departments, he added. He said that, as mobile phones are virtually available to all in the country, it is essential that we move to a mobile platform, which is easily accessible anytime, anywhere. Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the EO App has been developed keeping in mind the spirit of maximum Governance, minimum Government.
“The application would enable its users, which may include officers, media persons and all stakeholders to stay updated on real time basis with appointments and postings approved by the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) and vacancies at senior level in the Government of India.
By eliminating the information asymmetry in this regard, the EO App will reduce speculations regarding transfers and postings in the Government of India and will make the system completely transparent as all the relevant orders and notifications will now be instantly available in the public domain.
This is an effective management tool which also empowers the IAS officers on Pan India basis and officers serving under Central Staffing Scheme by providing their personal records like Annual Performance Appraisal Report (APAR), Immovable Property Return (IPR), Executive Record (ER) sheet through secured NIC login Id and Password”.
Android users can download the application from the Google Play Store using DoPT as the keyword for searching the App. The iOS version of the application will be released shortly.
Secretary to PM Shri Bhaskar Khulbe, Secretary DoPT Shri B.P.Sharma, Establishment Officer Shri Rajiv Kumar, DG, NIC Ms. Neeta Verma, Officers from PMO, Cabinet Secretariat and other senior officers of DoPT were also present on the occasion.
Assistant Secretary Ms. Divya Prabhu, IAS officer of the 2014 batch, gave the presentation on the Employees Online (EO) Mobile App.
