Kochi, Kerala, June 30, 2020 –
SBL Knowledge Services Ltd is pleased to announce that its eParliament solution has been featured in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Interim Report 2020, an esteemed publication that shares perspectives of Commonwealth Heads of Government and global leaders.
By partnering with Commonwealth Business Communications, SBL aims to increase the reach of eParliament to the 54 Commonwealth countries. SBL’s published article on eParliament highlights the need for digitalization of Commonwealth parliaments and urges the authorities to implement measures for green governance.
The “eParliament is a complete solution for end to end digitalization of law-making bodies”, and if implemented in the Commonwealth countries, it would result in a multitude of environmental and financial benefits. The digitalization of Commonwealth parliaments could bring an estimated reduction in operational expenses by USD 300 million in a year. There would also be a reduction in paper usage by over 11bn sheets of A4 paper annually. The benefits extend to saving over 800,000 trees annually, reducing carbon emissions by over 140,000Mt annually, and saving around 34bn gallons of water in a year.
The Chief Executive Officer of SBL, Mr. Gopakumar Pillai says “We are an organization committed to Eco-Friendly technological initiatives and are supporting many parliaments across the globe in their digitalization process. The partnership with Commonwealth Business Communications is expected to bring international exposure and acceptance for eParliament. SBL is positive of gaining a worldwide recognition for the concept of digitalization of parliaments.”
The eParliament should be considered as a significant step towards green governance. The solution introduces the following benefits in the functioning of law-making bodies:
- Eliminates redundant processes and improves process efficiency
- Paperless functioning and with seamless integration
- Better insight on day-to-day operations of legislative bodies
- Improved security and multiple levels of secure layers
- Zero downtime and improved decision making by access to the right information at the right time for informed decisions
SBL has proved the success of the concept through end to end digitalization of the Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly. The eParliament solution (eVidhaan) was selected by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India as a mission mode project for implementing in the law-making bodies across the country.
SBL considers it a privilege to support the digitalization of parliaments and contribute to the cause of eco-friendly technology.
