The Lok Sabha secretariat has released Digital Sansad, new software that would make it simpler for individuals to track the happenings in Parliament and their legislators. It will also assist members of parliament in accessing services such as personal updates, such as the status of their notices, House reports, and so on. Because MPs are not allowed to use laptops inside the House, the app comes in handy for parliamentary information during debates. MPs will be able to log in to check their attendance, ask questions during Question Hour, and submit notifications for debates or adjournment motions in the future.
The Digital Sansad app is offered on both Android and iOS devices and contains practically all of the important information from the Indian Parliament’s interconnected web. It was created by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, who wanted to make legislative processes more accessible to the general public. People will also be able to see archive material from all Lok Sabhas, including speeches and debates.
The app, which aims to be a digital interface for the Indian Parliament for the younger generation, has already attracted over 8000 users from India and other nations such as the United States and Saudi Arabia. The App will also include a live stream of Sansad sessions, as well as the most important news stories of the day. The 2022 Budget session may also be seen live on the App, in addition to a virtual tour of the Parliament. The change is part of a larger digital strategy that has resulted in a 98 percent reduction in paper use in Parliament. Opposition leaders have argued that during the World Pandemic, Parliament should have authorized internet meetings.
