The Secretariat of the Assembly has already organized a preliminary familiarization training for members.

Kohima:

The Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA) on Saturday became the first in the country to operationalize the e-Vidhan (NeVA) national application program to conduct a paperless session.

The Nagaland Assembly Secretariat attached a tablet or e-book each on the tables of the 60 members during the budget session for the financial year 2022-23 which started this morning.

“This is the means by which we will use this NeVA app in the Assembly as part of the pursuit of a paperless House,” Speaker Sharingain Longkumer said during a statement on the new app.

A similar system outside the NeVA framework has been set up in Himachal Pradesh while many other state assemblies are moving in this direction, Longkumer said.

Paperless Assembly of e-Assembly is a concept involving electronic means to facilitate all the work of the legislature. It is done under the supervision of the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs.

The Assembly Secretariat has already organized a preliminary familiarization training for members and will continue the training program for the benefit of all members.

In the coming days, it will be scaled up to take full advantage of the e-Vidhan system and achieve one of its goals of making the functioning of the state legislature paperless, he said.

Once all other assemblies implement it, Parliament and all state legislatures will be effectively networked, the president said.

NeVA implementation expenses are funded by the Center and the state government on a 90:10 split basis.

“The Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs has commended the Nagaland Assembly for being the first in the country to operationalize it,” the Speaker informed the House.

NeVA aims to bring together all the country’s legislatures on a single platform, creating a massive data repository, the Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs previously said.
