MPs to get iPads to access Parliamentary papers

Last updated on: August 07, 2011 19:06 IST

Members of Parliament will now be able to access Parliamentary documents on their Apple iPads and Samsung tablets - Samsung Galaxy Tab.

The committee on provision of computer equipment to members of Rajya Sabha has enhanced the financial entitlement of members by Rs 50,000 to facilitate purchase of the approved e-reader compatible devices (Apple iPad2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab) to reduce their dependency on paper copies of Parliamentary documents.   

The software that facilitates these devices to access documents has been developed by the National Informatics Centre.

Using this application, members will be able to access the latest list of business papers laid on the table of the House, latest Parliamentary bulletins, questions lists, and also members' birthdays.
