The management of electronic records is recognized as one of the vital underpinning elements in the government's modernization programme, and is a key to the government target for online service delivery. It will also be facilitating in helping organisations to meet the requirements of the Right to Information Act. To achieve the goal and to make Delhi Archives more modern & scientific, to keep the archival records intact for a longer period and for prompt access and retrieval of information/records by the users, the Department has converted its most of the archival collection into digital/ micro-film format in a phased manner on out-sourcing basis. Moreover, the Department has also uploaded the digital records on e-Abhilekh portal of the Department with a view to quick access of information by the users, long term archiving and help in saving the original archival records from mishandling and decay. The Project was started in September 2017 and completed in September 2021 with a target of 4 crore archival pages despite the difficulties aroused due to outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. The department is perhaps pioneer in the field of digitisation and microfilming and probably first in term of quantum of volume of records in Asia
