MYSORE: With a huge number of its employees set to retire in a few years and to ensure that the lesser workforce does not affect its works, the Palace Board, which maintains the world-famous Mysore Palace, has decided to convert its office into a paperless office soon.

Presently, the Board is managing with just 97 employees instead of sanctioned strength of 114. Over 60 percent of its workforce are set to retire in the next 3-4 years.

“We are already undserstaffed and with more retirements in the near future the burden on the system will only increase. Hence we thought of going for computerisation of our office to ensure that the work is balanced even after the huge retirements,” Palace Board deputy director T S Subramanya informed Express.

He said computerisation of the office will bring in transparency in the Board. The development works will be updated into the computers at every stage, with the photographs so that higher officials can access it from anywhere and get back to the Board for any changes. He said the process has already started with the documents were being scanned and uploaded into the computers.

The palace that had planned to commission the Flab Barriers in view of the manual system, finding it difficult to deal with large crowds, has decided to drop the idea and continue with the old system. The Flab Barriers which could allow 15 persons in a minute were to be installed at the car passage where the tourists enter the palace after obtaining the tickets, and at three other places where seperate tickets are required for entry.
