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.
SBL, Associate Partner for the development and implementation of e-Vidhan system is proud to be part of the first ever paperless budget session in India.
