Days after a massive fire gutted top floors of the Maharashtra secretariat building, Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan today said there will be a fire audit of all government buildings.
Efforts would also be made to achieve paperless offices, he said.
"Some offices have already become paperless. In fact, the NRHM (National Rural Health Mission) office is paperless," Chavan told reporters at Mantralaya after a meeting of the state Cabinet here.
"Today, I wish to declare that the Mantralaya has started functioning," he said.
The first three floors of the seven-storey building have been cleared by a team of structural experts for normal functioning, Chavan said. "We will decide on the fourth to sixth floor after structural audit is complete," he added.
"Be it sales tax data or any other data, it is secure in our server. There was no server in Mantralaya as has been reported," he said.
No one will be allowed entry to fourth, fifth and sixth floors as of now, he said.
All files pertaining to the Adarsh probe are safe, Chavan said.
Work on reconstruction of files damaged in fire and restoring data from hard disks is on, Chavan said.
The fire damaged 27 to 29% of Mantralaya building, he said.
This week, only Mantralaya staffers will be allowed in the building, Chavan said.
Visitors can meet concerned ministers at their official residence, he said.
The monsoon session of state Legislature will commence on July 9 as scheduled, he said.
Work is on to assess the extent of damage due to the fire, Chavan said. "Almost 90% of the around 2,000 computers in Mantralaya were damaged in the blaze," he said.
