Digitalisation of Parliamentary documents have helped save 1000 trees. Lok Sabha Speaker, Sumitra Mahajan said this enumerating the steps taken to turn the House into a "paperless institution". She yesterday said the number of copies of various Committee reports and papers laid on the table of the House has been considerably reduced.
She said the House has been able to save 80 lakh rupees annually by reducing the use of papers, an official statement said. Mrs Mahajan said the principal intent behind striving towards paperless office has been preservation of environment, adding that as per research, for every tree destroyed, around 20,000 sheets of paper are generated.
The Speaker also launched a web-portal for Lok Sabha members, which will facilitate online submission of various notices by them. The Speaker also released the seventh edition of a book "Practice and Procedure of Parliament" written by MN Kaul and SL Shakdher. It was first published in 1968 and has been revised and updated at regular intervals to make it apposite to time. She said Hindi edition of the book will be published soon.
