The heaps of paperwork and the dragging administrative process is said to be the reason behind this idea. Anil Madhav Dave, a Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Madhya Pradesh says, "Technologically advanced devices such as Apple iPad will reduce the use of paper which in turn will reduce the laborious red tape." The MP who uses the wonder product from Apple to organize his personal tour planning, managing parliament works and news reading, feels it will reduce the paper work by 89-90 percent and will put an end to the delay in administrative process.A prominent leader of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazagham Dr. V. Maitreyan says, "It's an effort to minimize if not eliminate the use of paper. Various reports from the parliament including debates, question lists and similar programs are compacted in iPad and I can access every program of parliament in this device. It's easier to handle and is very user friendly."
