The Lok Sabha asks reports on the economic efficient use of paper

New Delhi, in an effort to reduce the use of paper in Parliament, the Lok Sabha secretariat requested quarterly reports from its branches last week.

A Lok Sabha circular stated, "It is...brought to the notice of all concerned that the required quarterly reports for the last two quarters of 2021 have yet to be received from a large number of branches, sections, and units, thereby hindering follow-up action."Officials said the reports must be submitted by January 21, and the reduction in paper usage will be included in the Lok Sabha secretariat's annual report.With the use of electric cars, battery-powered golf carts, and LED lighting, the Parliament complex has become more environmentally friendly.Many notices, bulletins, and reports are now published online, so the use of paper in Parliament is already limited. Legislators can now submit online notices and upload questions for Question Hour, among other things, using a new app. They used to have to fill out forms or send in written notices.
