Nagaland becomes first in country to have operationalized National e-Vidhan Application programme
Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA) has become the first in the country to have operationalized the National e-Vidhan Application (NeVA) programme. This was stated by NLA Speaker, Sharingan Longkumer during the first day of the the13th NLA Budget session which commenced today.
Longkumer said, E-Book installed in the NLA is the medium through which the member will be using NeVA application in the Assembly in pursuit of the paperless Assembly. He said, the E-Book remains inside the Assembly and is not meant to be removed from its placement position.
Sharing his delight with the members of the House, Longkumer said NLA is the first in the country to have reached this important milestone of operationalising the NeVA system.
He said, a similar system outside the framework of NeVA has been in operation in the State of Himachal Pradesh and similar efforts have been made by other State Assemblies.
The NLA Speaker said, the NeVA system has been a continuous effort initiated during the time of his predecessor former Speaker Dr. Chotisuh Sazo and expressed his happiness to participate and share the pride in the final implementation of NeVA system.
He said, in the coming days, it will be scaling up to the full advantage of the e-Vidhan system in the Assembly’s functioning, achieving one of its targets of bringing about a Paperless Assembly.
He also said, once the other Assemblies also implement it, all Assemblies and the Parliament of India will be networked together effectively. In this, Longkumer said the NLA will be continuing with the training programme for the benefit of all the Members in the coming days too.
He, therefore, appealed to the members to benefit from the programme. The NeVa is a project which is funded by the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs, Government of India with 10 percent State share. Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs also extended its gratitude to the State Assembly of Nagaland for being the first in the country to operationalize it.
