Preservation of precious records of high archival value
Special Campaign 2.0 from 2nd -31st October 2022 was highlighted with many best practices and innovations for efficient space and records management. The campaign was implemented on the whole of the Government’s approach under the coordination of DARPG.
The Department has also taken several landmark initiatives to preserve century-old documents of high historical value and preserve them with the help of the National Archives of India during Special Campaign 2.0. It also framed a few such records to display in the library. [List in attached Annexure]
Hindi translation of the Central Secretariat Manual of Office Procedure (CSMOP) was also taken out for the first time. CSMoP is the backbone of the functioning of the central Ministries and always provided much-needed guidance through standardized processes and procedures for a complex and diverse set-up of the Central Secretariat.
During Special Campaign 2.0, DARPG generated revenue of Rs.48, 500 from a scrap of electronic and physical wastes during the campaign period and freed an area of around 200 sq. ft space.
