Rajasthan Assembly becomes first in India to call motions online


The Rajasthan assembly has become the first in India to call attention and adjournment motions and proposals online from legislators to send them to the state government. Speaker Kailash Meghwal inaugurated the new system by sending a call for an attention motion to the state government with a click of mouse.

The system is expected to save time, labour and use of paper in the functioning of the assembly, and also help legislators in bringing attention to urgent public issues. It will also streamline exchange of information and reports among respective departments.

National Informatics Centre has set up a help desk at the secretariat to provide assistance to state government staff in getting used to the new system.
