It is essential to be tech-savvy in the age of e-governance; thus the Meghalaya Government is all set to turn their State Legislative Assembly session into a paperless one. Meghalaya is the first Northeastern State who has taken up this initiative.
‘We hope that in the coming autumn session, we will be going paperless,’ said Speaker Abu Taher Mondal, ‘With the use of technology, we hope efficiency and transparency of government related works will increase.’
Impressed with the functioning of the Rajasthan Assembly, he pointed out that the government has acquired software from Rajasthan and the State IT officials are making necessary modifications to suit the requirements. ‘In this regard, approximate 80 per cent work has been done,’ he added.
The Speaker further disclosed that all the questions and answers will not be printed on paper but would be uploaded onto a computer which is being developed by National Informatics Centre (NIC).
