U.P. State Legislature Proceedings

now on a Digital Platform

Multi-Lingual, Interactive Access to Historical Documents and All Unstructured Data to Radically Improve Legislative Process

Uttar Pradesh Vidhaan Sabha, India’s largest state assembly, is the first state legislature in the country to embrace the Persistent Systems solution and to embark on such a comprehensive digitization of the proceedings of the State Legislature.


Legislative information, often dating back to when legislative bodies were first created, is comprised of books of proceedings, newspaper cuttings, orders, letters, as well as audio and video recordings. The Multilingual Intelligent Search and Analytics solution is an integrated solution to scan, annotate and indexed books of proceedings – stored in a secure and tamperproof digital vault, and available on the portal accessible from any device. The solution allows searches in English, Hindi and other official Indian languages, through a specialized search capability custom built for Indian languages.

The Legislature of the State of Uttar Pradesh is the first State Legislature to undertake this stupendous task. Persistent Systems Ltd. has completed the task successfully and they deserve appreciation for that. The features of this software like its search engine and other aspects are the latest technology in the field.

Like every business is becoming software-driven, the opportunity is in front of every state to become software-driven in its functioning. It is a privilege and an honor for all of us at Persistent Systems to be able to impact and improve lives with such a solution. There is an urgent need in India today to make Governments more accessible, transparent, and efficient – both within its own departments and to the general public.
