In Nepal, the Cabinet of Ministers led by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has decided to go paperless. A photograph of the Cabinet Hall shared on Twitter by Bishnu Rimal, the prime minister's advisor on political affairs shows all members using laptop computers instead of papers and pens.
"I have already said in the Council of Ministers meeting that we will make the office paperless within six months. The meeting's programs and agenda will be discussed using laptops," Oli said on May 30 and asked all ministers to learn computer basics.
The ministers will receive a username and a one-time password every time they enter the cabinet hall.
