Leader of the opposition Ronnie V Lyngdoh today stated that he is onboard with the use of the National eVidhan Application (NeVA) to make the proceedings of the Meghalaya Assembly seamless and paperless.
Lyngdoh received training today on the use of the application by officials from the IT cell of the Assembly Secretariat. He emphasised that this initiative can play a meaningful role in environment conservation by reducing the amount of paper, and therefore trees, used.
He also pointed out the efficiency of the application as it can be used to submit questions and notices anywhere on the go. The application hosts a secure page for each MLA for submitting questions and other notices.
NeVA, deployed on the NIC Cloud MeghRaj, is a workflow system designed to facilitate the smooth conduct of house proceedings by the chair and conduct legislative business in a paperless manner and assist MLAs to carry out their duties in the Assembly.
NeVA is a device neutral and member centric application created to equip them to handle diverse house business smartly by putting the entire information regarding member contact details, rules of procedure, list of business, notices, bulletins, bills, starred/unstarred questions and answers, papers laid, committee reports etc. in their handheld devices and will completely eliminate the process of sending out a notice/request for collection of data.
