 breaking news

The 7th Arunachal Legislative Assembly Budget Session began on Monday. The session will continue for 9 days and will conclude on the 10th of March. Honoring the Digital India initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Arunachal Pradesh Assembly has implemented the National e-Vidhan application in the house. The initiative will make all the proceedings in the house paperless.

The device neutral and member-centric application, the National e-Vidhan Application is created to equip them to handle diverse House Business smartly at one go. All you have to do is to put all the information like member contact details, rules of procedure, list of business, notices, bulletins, bills, starred/unstarred questions and answers, papers laid, committee reports etc. in the devices/ tablets and equip all Legislatures/ Departments to handle it efficiently.

Assembly Speaker PD Sona said that though the e-Vidhan application has started functioning, the Assembly proceedings will go fully paperless from the next session as all the members are not acquainted with the new technology.

State’s Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, who also holds the Finance portfolio, is likely to present the Budget Estimates for the fiscal year 2020-21 on Wednesday.
