Itanagar: Assam Legislative Assembly Speaker Biswajit Daimary, who is on an official tour of Arunachal Pradesh, on Monday visited the state legislative assembly secretariat here.

Daimary and his team of officers, along with Barhampur MLA Jitu Goswami, are in Itanagar to gather first-hand information about the National e-Vidhan (NeVA) project.

National e-Vidhan is a device-neutral and member-centric application created to equip the handler with information regarding the Assembly. The Arunachal Assembly is the first in the northeast and third in the country to have successfully implemented the ambitious project.

With the help of the application, the members can use their tablets/laptops to see the list of businesses, read questions and other documents pertaining to House proceedings.

The ministry of parliamentary affairs is the nodal ministry for the project.

Earlier, state legislative assembly speaker Pasang D Sona and deputy speaker Tesam Pongte received Daimary and his team at the assembly and felicitated them with traditional scarves and gifts.

During a meeting that followed, both the Speakers discussed at length the NeVA project and other matters related to regional cooperation and Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) India Region Zone III.

Sona informed the visiting dignitaries that the whole idea of NeVA project was not only to make the functions of the assembly paperless but also to save time, money and energy.

The e-Vidhan project, Sona said, is not only helping the assembly proceedings efficiently but also helps in reducing environmental hazards due to less use of papers.

He also said a paper recycling unit has been installed at the Arunachal assembly complex to re-use waste papers.

Meanwhile, appreciating the Arunachal assembly for successfully implementing the NeVA project, the Assam speaker sought necessary assistance for the project’s implementation in the upcoming Assam Assembly building.

The new building of the Assam legislative assembly is likely to be completed soon, he informed.

The dignitaries took a tour of the assembly complex during which they visited the Assembly Library, D K Auditorium, NeVA Centre and the main assembly hall.
