Budget session at Himachal Pradesh Assembly was different from what it used to be. The e-Vidhan project, commissioned in the last monsoon session launched on (August 4 2014), transformed the session as country’s first web-based paperless budget session.
During the month-long budget session that began on March 11, the not-so tech-savvy members were seen busy in tapping their fingers on their desktop computers.
Soon after the chief minister announced the schemes and incentives in his budget speech, the members were busy in scrolling down to see the entire text of the speech and view the budget related books. Members had the provision to search the earlier budgets for making any references.
e-Vidhan reduced the printing cost of the Budget documents drastically by availing the digital copies of Budget speech and related documents on the internet immediately after the speech is completed by CM.
Governor Kalyan Singh, in his inaugural address, said the digitalisation of the assembly proceedings, ensures paperless work of the house and its committees, would not only save approximately Rs.15 crore but also the environment.
In his budget speech, Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, said the e-Vidhan system, which has helped in saving a huge quantity of paper has been lauded all over the country.
Speaker BBL Butail said, for the first time, all copies of bills and reports were laid online and from the next session all replies to questions would only be provided online.
The e-Vidhan project was developed as a joint venture between the Himachal Pradesh State Legislative Assembly, National Informatics Centre Services Incorporated (NICSI) and the Government of Himachal Pradesh which was sanctioned by Department of Electronics & Information Technology of India.
Based on the track record in implementing similar projects in government and public sectors, NICSI selected SBL as Associate Partner for the development and implementation of the entire system. With a reputation for intelligent, efficient and highly-organized development and project-management skills, SBL’s technology division has successfully developed and implemented the entire system within the guidelines of NICSI and is proud to be associated with the first ever hi-tech legislative house in India.

Himachal Pradesh is set to become the country’s first state to present a ‘paperless’ budget on March 11. Since the state already has the country’s first green assembly, all documents related to budget estimates would be made available online and only around 10 budget copies would be printed for record.
Earlier, around 200 copies along with huge volumes of other documents used to be published during the budget session. Running the proceedings on e-Vidhan would save the state exchequer Rs 15 crore annually.

Digital India Vision: Opening up the way for e-Governance and digitization solutions to public & private sector.
In a stirring ‘call to action’ speech towards the end of 2014, Prime Minister Modi outlined his ambitious vision for a Digital India. It quickly became clear that the successful implementation of this vision would rely primarily on the implementation of IT & Technology innovations across public and private sectors. In particular, a key starting point would be initiating the change from paper-based information silos to paperless and evolving data ecosystems.
At SBL, this announcement was met with great enthusiasm. As a leading IT solution provider in e-Governance projects, and a long-standing advocate of digital transformation in India, it felt as though our own strategy was finally aligning with central government policy. Most impressive of all was the understanding that a successful digital transformation has a number of vital stages, all of which must be joined up through a comprehensive and coherent plan.
Our successful track record in implementing e-Governance solutions demonstrates that we have the required understanding and project capabilities to formulate and execute these often complex plans. Part of this is of course carefully implemented change management. We have already helped a range of organizations to navigate this transformation. These include Government departments, Legislative Assemblies, Publishing companies, Libraries and Commercial enterprises. Typical project activities include digitizing and archiving existing paper records; inter-active database creation; hosting and joined up management of data; e-portal creation to deliver digitized records online.
We are delighted to be part of the ambitious Digital India project.
