Now when MLAs stand up and ask questions in the UP Assembly, they will have a tablet, not a paper, in front of them. He shall, as necessary, place before the Speaker and the members of the House the full particulars recorded therein. This complete new look will now be seen from the first session of the new assembly. The first session of the Vidhan Sabha (Budget session) is proposed from the third week of May.
The Legislative Secretariat has started this campaign of digitization under the National e-Vidhan Project. A tablet will be installed at each MLA’s seat. This tablet will be a permanent fix. All the material will be available on this tablet based on the constituency number of the member. In this the agenda of the House will already be loaded.
Various types of information, questions to be asked during Question Hour and their written answers will also be preloaded on the Table of the House. The special thing is that if a member leaves his seat and sits in another place, then he will not be able to use the tablet installed there. Therefore each member shall sit where the seat is reserved for him. A special tablet will also be installed for the Chief Minister and the Leader of the Opposition and the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs. By the way, the MLAs will also be given training to work on the online system and laptop-tablet before the session.
