Parliament Aims for January 2023 to go Paperless

Syed Amin ul Haque, Pakistan’s Minister of Information Technology and Telecommunication, recently stated that by January 2023, all of the country’s legislative procedures will be paperless.

This was mentioned at the ‘Islamabad IT Park’ inauguration with South Korean Ambassador Suh Sangpyo, where the Minister declared, “The consultant has been recruited to digitalize the Parliament by January 2023.” All call attention notifications, adjourned motions, attendances, voting, and other business will be conducted online.”

Furthermore, the Minister stated that training for MPs will be provided so that they could become acquainted with the technology. A paperless cabinet conference was also organised to emphasise the importance of implementing technology breakthroughs in the new era.

The establishment of the IT park, on the other hand, was one of the most significant initiatives done in order to realise the Digital Pakistan vision and provide greater infrastructure in the IT sector, as well as a stable link between university and industry. In order to boost connection across the country, roughly Rs. 31 billion has been invested in the last two years.

Pakistan’s IT export remittances increased by 45.80% to $1.70 billion between July and April of fiscal year 2020-2021 as a result of all the actions taken.
