Save Paper: Rajya Sabha to go Digital

We have been tracking some of the government technology initiative and the latest comes from Rajya Sabha.

Government has announced that Rajya Sabha will go digital, i.e. Parliamentarians will receive documents in hard copy only if they request for it and special incentives will be provided to MPs who opt for the digital format.

Government has formed a committee to undertake a comprehensive and scientific study to evolve a suitable mechanism to ensure that the usage of paper is minimised (source).

A welcome initiative, though it is important to understand the security aspects of such digital documents (government official computers/websites easily get hacked).

Maybe, private sector (i.e. beyond the IT companies) should also take a leaf from this.
