India’s Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs organized a two-day orientation workshop on National e-Vidhan Application (NeVA) in Delhi on Tuesday.

This was the first workshop on NeVA, which aims to make all the Legislatures of the country paperless by making the proceedings of the Houses digital. It is an attempt to provide the information about the functioning of House to the common citizen at the click of a button.

The iOS and Google app of NeVA along with the NeVA website will act as a repository of data related to the business of all Legislatures in the country in a uniform manner.

According to the Ministry, the NeVA aims to live up-to its potential of being ‘One Nation, One Application’. This uniformity of database will lead to easy and effective engagement of citizens with the Government, which will lead to efficient delivery of services and ensure reliability, efficiency, transparency, and accountability of all the stakeholders.

NeVA is expected to bring Legislatures closer to citizens, thereby taking a decisive step in achievement of substantive democracy. Once the program is operational, details of 5,379 Members from the 40 Legislatures will be uploaded on the portal.

A total of 1,13,337 questions, 25,662 notices, 1,708 Bills, 515 committee reports and 10,043 papers from the Legislatures will become available in public domain on NeVA app and website.

Addressing the gathering of over 200 delegates from 29 States and Union Territories, representing 36 Legislatures across the country including Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Secretariat, minister Vijay Goel congratulated the team of Union Ministry of Parliamentary affairs for spearheading the NeVA initiative as well as the Assembly of Himachal Pradesh for taking the lead in adopting digitization.
