In a record of sorts, the AP State Legislative Assembly will become the first paperless legislature in the country.

Assembly speaker N Manohar has said that the Union ministry of information technology and communications had chosen the AP Assembly for implementation of a Rs 16.50-crore World Bank-aided project for its computerisation.

“The paperless functioning will increase the efficiency in the functioning of the legislature and will improve transparency. Even Parliament is yet to convert itself into paperless mode,” he said here on Monday.

“A file-monitoring network, integrated with all government departments, will be put in place to ensure paperless administration. All information on government schemes and public assets in each constituency will be made available to legislators on their mobile phones through GIS. Hereafter, all communication to MLAs will be in electronic format only.’’

He said only 52 percent of the MLAs had  furnished details of their assets and liabilities.

Telugu Website

The Assembly website, www. aplegislature.org, will be made bilingual (English and Telugu) soon for the convenience of legislators and people who know only Telugu.
