eVidhan system was implemented in August 2014 in Himachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha and the system played a key role in successfully facilitating all the sessions of 2014-15, including the monsoon and the budget sessions.
eVidhan has supported Himachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha through better time management during the sessions, improving the efficiency of processes and by reducing the operational cost. According to Himachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha implementation of e-Vidhan has reduced the usage of paper and printing and helped to save nearly 10-15 crores of operational expenses in addition to its contribution to environment.
eVidhan offers mobile application solution for the Legislative assembly members enabling them to access the days’s business 45 minutes before the start of the session. This application allows Legislative assembly members to access the information of the entire proceedings of the House in the digital form on their mobile phones and tablets immediately after the end of the day’s work.
Himachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha’s successful implementation of e-Vidhan is getting attention from all other states. Madhya Pradesh assembly speaker has visited Himachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha, to know more about the system and its benefits. The delegation led by the MP speaker was keen to explore the possibility of implementation of the project in their state.
eVidhan project is first of its kind in India and was developed as a joint venture between the Himachal Pradesh State Legislative Assembly, National Informatics Centre, National Informatics Centre Services Incorporated (NICSI), Government of Himachal Pradesh along with SBL.
