Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma will digitally present the budget estimates for the 2024-25 financial year during the upcoming budget session of the Assembly in a paperless manner.
The budget speech will be made available on the National eVidhan Application website – neva.gov.in/Home/NeVA – and on the Assembly website -megassembly.gov.in/.
MLAs will be able to access the speech through the tablets provided in the house.
Officials of the IT cell of the Assembly Secretariat today provided training to the CM on the use of the NeVA.
Andrew Simons, Commissioner & Secretary of the Assembly Secretariat, said that this measure aligns with the objective of transitioning the Assembly proceedings to a paperless format.
He also informed that several innovations are being initiated towards the goal of making the Assembly fully paperless.
Hard copies of the list of business, questions, motions, resolutions, etc, will be limited and the documents will be uploaded in the NeVA and Assembly websites.
Legislators will also be provided the option of submitting their questions and other notices through the application, as the app hosts a secure page for each member of the house.
