ITANAGAR, Sept 12 - The Arunachal Pradesh State Legislative Assembly is gearing up to go paperless in a few months� time under the ambitious e-Vidhan project. The decades-old system of providing written replies, reports, bills and copies of documents to the legislators is likely to become a thing of the past.
Assembly Speaker Pasang Dorjee Sona today held a meeting with senior officials of the Assembly Secretariat and reviewed the e-Vidhan project to be implemented in the Assembly Secretariat.
Once the e-Vidhan project is implemented, all information of the Assembly will be available at one touch as members can use their android phones, tablets and laptops to see the business list and read questions and other documents pertaining to the House proceedings, stated an official press note here.
The Speaker asked the officers and all concerned to ensure that the project is completed within the given time frame.
Deputy Speaker Tesam Pongte also asked the officers to work extra time to complete the project within the given time frame and make sure that the next Assembly session is conducted under the e-Vidhan platform. The meeting was also attended by Assembly Secretary M Lasa.
The State Assembly Secretariat, along with the Lok Sabha Secretariat, conducted a two-day orientation programme for MLAs on the National e-Vidhan Application (NeVA) initiative on the Assembly premises here recently.
�Once the State Legislative Assembly is digitalized and the Assembly sessions go paperless, think of the tonnes of papers that would be saved, directly contributing to the State�s exchequer and to the environment,� Chief Minister Pema Khandu had said.
