With a total project cost of Rs 12.31 crore the project also envisages the setting up of a NeVA Seva Kendra (NSK) for e-Facilitation.

Ms. Mahajan informed that the state government has decided to conduct the proceedings of Monsoon Session digitally and the entire proceedings of the session will be digitized.
