LS secretariat all set to welcome new MPs

New Delhi, May 15, 2014, dhns:
The Lok Sabha Secretariat has made elaborate arrangements to welcome newly-elected members from Friday, the day the results of the general elections would be declared.

Officials expect Lok Sabha members from constituencies in and around the national capital to reach Parliament to complete the registration formalities once they receive the election certificate from the returning officer.

“In 2009, newly-elected members had started arriving in Parliament from the day the results were declared,” a Lok Sabha secretariat official said.

Every new member would receive a maroon coloured VIP briefcase, which will be filled with information booklets on Parliament, the rules of procedure, a member’s handbook and a book on demarcation of responsibilities in the Central government.

Guide posts have been set up at railway stations and the airport to receive the newly-elected members here.

“The guide posts at Old Delhi, Hazrat Nizamuddin and New Delhi railway stations and Terminal 3 and 1D of the airport here would be functional from May 16, the day the results of the elections would be announced,” P Sreedharan, Lok Sabha Secretary General, told reporters here.

A temporary studio is being set up in a room in Parliament House for taking photographs of the newly-elected members for their identity cards, alongside information on website and in a book compiling brief profile of each member.

Every newly-elected member has to fill in 15-20 forms on personal information for availing various privileges, including accommodation and transport facilities.

The LS Secretariat is also making preparations for hosting an orientation programme for first-time members.

Department of Estates under the Urban Development Ministry has been tasked with making transit accommodation for the first-time members in various state guest houses in the capital.
