The Nagaland assembly has become the first in the country to become paperless. 

History was created on Saturday, after the Nagaland state assembly became completely paperless by implementing National e-Vidhan Application (NeVA) programme. 

“Nagaland becomes India’s first legislative assembly to successfully implement National e-Vidhan project. Now members can use electronic devices to participate in House proceedings. This initiative encourages paperless operations and reflects government’s commitment towards Ashta Lakshmi,” said union minister of parliamentary affairs – Prahlad Joshi. 

Notably, a tablet or an e-book has been attached to each table in the 60 members’ Nagaland assembly House.
