On 9 June 2022, a delegation of MLA from Gujarat visited the Uttar Pradesh legislative Assembly to learn about the novel e-Vidhan system for paperless proceedings that has been recently adopted by the UP state assembly.
What is NeVA ?
NeVA is a work - flow system deployed on the National Informatics Centre (NTC) Cloud, Meghraj which helps the chair of the House to conduct the proceedings.
It also helps members of the House to carryout their duties efficiently and to conduct legislative business in a paperless manner.
Aim of NeVA
NeVA aims to bring together the Indian legislatures on one platform thus creating a massive depository of data without having the complexity faced due to having multiple applications.
NeVA is a member - centric and device neutral application that was created to equip the members to smartly handle various house business.
It puts entire information regarding the contact details of members, list of business, rules of procedure, bulletins, notices, starred or unstarred questions, and answers, bills, committee reports, papers laid, etc. in their landhold devices such as tablets and equip all departments and legislatures to handle it efficiently.
Through the use of NeVA, the process of sending out a request or notice for the data collection is completely eliminated.
Each member of the House has a secure page where they can submit questions and other notices.
For the implementation of NeVA, the expense is funded by the central government and the state government on a sharing basis .
Significance of NeVA
It is transforming all state legislatures into 'DIGITAL HOUSES' so as to enable them to transact entire government business on digital platforms including information exchange with the state government Departments in digital mode.
It stands for bringing far - reaching transformation in the governance across the country by making the people well informed & enlightening citizens and thereby strengthening the roots of the democracy in the country.
It is not only bringing greater synergy, coordination, transparency and accountability between the legislatures and executive in a state but also across the states.
It will completly eliminate the process of sending out a notice / request for collection of date.
