Goa assembly shows the way, goes `paperless`
Zee Media Bureau
Panaji: Goa legislative assembly will create history with the introduction of `paperless` system to transact business when the house convenes for the monsoon session on Tuesday.
Speaker Rajendra Arlekar had announced that the session would be "95 percent" paperless, with most of the business including question and answers to be uploaded online.
For the first time, the questions were accepted online, which saved the legislators the inconvenience of visiting the assembly building at Porvorim to submit them.
The Manohar Parrikar-led government will be tabling Panchayati Raj Amendment Bill and amendment to the municipal act,. Reports added that there was also a possibility that Goa Police Bill, pending for a long time, would be tabled.
Besides, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar will table the much-awaited new mining policy, and announce financial package to give relief to those who have become indebted due to closure of the mining activity in the state.
The session is scheduled to end on August 21, with 18 working days.
