Lok Sabha MPs would soon be able to use iPads in the house with a parliamentary panel clearing Wi-Fi connectivity in the lower house of Parliament. The Rajya Sabha s already equipped with the facility.
The move will help the Lok Sabha secretariat pursue its paperless office plan, which aims to reduce paper use in printing a large number of reports and documents and instead make them available on the website.
The wi-fi facility is expected to help over 300 of the 543 Lok Sabha MPs who have purchased iPads under a scheme in accessing routine information like notices, bulletins, list of business, questions and answers and other reports during the session.
Under the scheme, MPs are provided Rs 50,000 to buy an Apple iPad or Android-based Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The paper used for such communication can be saved if the MPs start checking out this information in a digital format using iPads
