In a key step towards digital transformation, the Digital Sansad app emerges as an ideal companion tool to the new Parliament building, which was opened on Sunday, for expediting legislative operations and encouraging seamless communication and collaboration among all stakeholders. Designed to meet the demands of Members of Parliament (MPs), government users, citizens, and secretariat workers, this paperless and accessible platform uses cutting-edge technology to provide an upgraded experience and ensure effective collaboration within the Parliament ecosystem.
The redesigned Digital Sansad portal provides a comprehensive and personalised set of privileges to MPs, ministries, secretariat workers, and citizens alike, depending on their distinct identities.
One of the app’s most notable capabilities is its capacity to transcribe House proceedings in real time using artificial intelligence (AI). This ground-breaking technology enables automatic speech recognition, which accurately captures and transcribes every word spoken in Parliament.
The AI-powered transcription ensures the availability of accurate and dependable records, removing the need for manual note-taking and reducing the danger of errors or omissions. This feature not only accelerates the documentation process, but also allows for easy retrieval of material, which benefits MPs, researchers, and the general public.
Furthermore, the Digital Sansad app provides a multitude of information and functions to improve legislative processes. Users can access a digital pool of Parliament materials, including House business, debates, Q&As, member involvement, media galleries, and digital libraries. This vast store of information enables MPs and public alike to keep informed and engaged in the legislative process.
Furthermore, the Constituency Connect component of the app promotes seamless interaction between residents and their respective legislators, allowing for open dialogue and building a sense of democratic involvement.

The Digital Sansad app provides personalised dashboards for each Member of Parliament, providing a detailed picture of their calendar, daily business, e-notices, participation records, payment details, and information from the Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS). This improved access to legislative business via a single sign-on approach saves MPs time and reduces administrative procedures.
Furthermore, the app introduces the MP Tour function, which allows MPs to connect with constituents more efficiently. By smoothly switching between the citizen website and the MP portal, MPs can bridge the gap between their legislative responsibilities and the needs and ambitions of the people they represent. This direct connection improves openness, accountability, and responsiveness in the political process, empowering citizens and establishing a democratic environment.
