The Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly is all set to go paperless.

Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly speaker Pasang D Sona on Tuesday inspected the ongoing e-Vidhan project which is being implemented in the Assembly secretariat at Itanagar.

National e-Vidhan application is a Mission Mode Project to digitize and make the functioning of state legislatures paperless.

The project here is in its final stage and is all set to make Arunachal Pradesh’ Legislative Assembly proceedings “paperless” from the upcoming budget session.

Once the e-Vidhan project is implemented, each and every information in regards to the Legislative Assembly will be available at the fingertips of the members who can then use their tablets/laptops to see the list of business and read questions and other documents pertaining to house proceedings.

Inspecting the progress of the work, the speaker instructed the agency concerned to ensure that the project is completed at the earliest.

He, however, suggested them to maintain the quality of work and also to make sure that there is no loophole or lapse in it.

Meanwhile, informing that the project work is in the final stage and only installation work is remaining, the officials of e-Vidhan briefed the speaker that installation work will start immediately and training to the members concerned will be imparted from the second week of February.

The officials also demonstrated the working and functioning of the e-Vidhan project.
