  4. Home ministry prepares cabinet note proposing to make electoral bribery cognizable offence NEW DELHI: In what could be the first poll reform ushered in by the Modi government, the home ministry has prepared a draft cabinet note proposing to make electoral bribery a cognizable offence under the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC). A cognizable offence is an offence for which a police officer has the authority to make an arrest without a warrant. The police are also allowed to start an investigation with or without the permission of a court for cognizable offences. Currently, bribing voters, in cash or kind, during the election season is a non-cognisable offence under sections 171B/171E of the Indian Penal Code, which attracts only up to one-year of imprisonment or fine as punishment. The Election Commission of India (ECI), in 2012, had asked the home ministry to amend the first schedule of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, to make it a cognizable offence and also increase punishment to up to two years. That suggestion has been accepted by the new government. The home ministry, in a letter dated December 22, 2014, has informed the poll panel that the process to amend the CrPC has been "initiated" and that a draft cabinet note, approved by home minister Rajnath Singh, has been sent to the legislative department to prepare a draft bill. The ministry's letter was in response to the poll panel's query, dated December 11, 2013, regarding the status of the suggestion to make bribery a cognizable offence. "We made this query because it pertains specifically to the home ministry. Other electoral reforms are with the law ministry and they have sent it to the Law Commission for their suggestions on it," said a senior EC official, who did not wish to be identified. The EC has often lamented that without changes in the IPC and CrPC, it is like a toothless tiger as currently bribery is a bailable offence attracting only minimal punishment. "This is required for us to take any effective action. Without a warrant you can't even search the house of person who could be hiding Rs 20 lakh at home to distribute among voters at night,' said another EC official, not authorized to speak to media.

  11. I would like to share the efforts of Dr Satendra Singh whose RTI's to both Election Commission of India and Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi revealed how the commission is ill-prepared to safeguard the rights of voters with disability. After the RTI's were published in leading newspapers, CEO Delhi invited him and other people from disability sector to take care of the problems and implement Supreme Court Order for the General Elections. They are working on an action plan and announcements from CEO office are encouraging. We can only hope that other states take lead from Delhi election commission and make the elections disabled-friendly throughout the India and not only in Delhi. Here are the media reports: RTI ​ success​ (Late March 2014) Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi called a meeting with persons with disabilities & NGO's​; called again for action plan Voting to be made easier for disabled.

  12. Hi guys, I need some help in framing questions (yes, I know you don't ask "questions" under RTI, but you get my point) regarding the voter registration form I submitted weeks ago. Skip to "RTI Application" part of my post if you don't have time. Why? While I understand I shouldn't be using RTI for such personal grievance purposes (at least that's what I have been told), the reason why I'm inclined to use it because I couldn't get proper answers from the staff at my VREC or the official Helpline of CEODelhi. Here's the telephonic conversation of how it went: I called the Helpline (1950) to enquire about the status of my application: Me: Hello, would you able to help me with the status of my voter's application? Helpline: When did you submit your application? Me: Three weeks ago Helpline: *smug laugh*, voter registration is a 2 months process. Me: Okay, thank you, bu... Helpline: You will get a phone call and will be requested to visit and submit your documents. Hang-up I then decided to try my luck with my constituency VREC: Me: Hello, could you please let me know how long does the voter registration process takes? VREC: One month. Have you submitted your application? Me: Yes, I've submitted form 6 online. VREC: What's your name? Me: , I also have an application ID... VREC: It'd be better if you personally visit the VREC. When did you submit your application? Me: Three weeks ago VREC: Then we haven't got it yet. Me: But... I didn't even give you my application ID... VREC: Did you get any phone call? Me: No. VREC: You'll get a call and will be asked to visit and submit your documents. After that process you'll be issued an ID card in a month. Me: But I have already uploaded the documents. VREC: Yes but you'll get a call and will be asked to visit and submit your documents. Me: ... Me: Okay... Thank you. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Firstly, what I don't understand is how could the online process delay the process by one month (see VREC response). I thought they'd receive my application almost instantly. Secondly, both places emphasised on "phone call" and personal visit to deliver the documents (which I of course don't mind), but according to the FAQs on :: Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi :: the BLO should be visiting my place for house verification AND to obtain my signature and collect the documents (if not uploaded) - or possibly verify the originals. RTI Application: This is my first attempt at writing a RTI application, I will really appreciate your inputs. RTI Template: http://i.imgur.com/37uRC.jpg (100kb) Information requested: Please inform me whether the ERO/AERO of "___________" Assembly Constituency has received voter's registration [form 6] application ID XXXXXX dated XX, XXXX, XXXX? Please provide me the details of the actions taken on aforementioned application (2.1). Please inform me the current status of the aforementioned application (2.1). Please inform me whether there are any rules / guidelines under which the enrolment of the voter and the issuance of EPIC must be done under specific period of time. Please provide me the name and designation of the officer/s responsible for the maintenance of online enrolment system located on http://ceodelhi.gov.in/ Please provide me the name and designation of the officer/s responsible for the processing and transferring of online voter applications to their designated VREC. Please inform me whether VREC are required by any rules/guidelines to obtain Age/Residence Proof documents from an applicant even if the documents were uploaded during the online registration process. Please provide me the list of proofs of residence that are acceptable. Point #8 is already answered on the CEODelhi website but I would like to know if there has been any modifications. Am I making sense here?
  13. Hello , The intention to seek for the help is to know the further details of the status of my application which has been submitted for the inclusion of name in voting but , i haven't received any electoral cards yet. It has been a while from now. I have checked for the online status and it shows the application is accepted by ERO. Well , As I'm going to vote for the first time , I'm not intense and immaculately new with these stuff. I would be glad if you could help further in getting my electoral card and guide me with the proper norms. Your help will be much appreciated.

  14. Hello Friends, I have purchased a house and the old owner has provided me old bills (MSEB) dating to year 2000. The electric meter was installed installed somewhere in 80/85, how can i obtain the old electric bill or a letter of installation from Reliance as they have flatly refused providing one. Thanking you in anticipation. Warm Regards, Vishal Lobo
  15. I had submitted three Form 6 applications to my Assembly Constituency's ERO's office. One was for transfer of name from one constituency to another, and other two were for inclusion of new names in my area's electoral roll. In spite of the applications being submitted in January, 2013 and document verification being completed in February, 2013 (first week), I have got no information regarding the status of my applications. I visited the ERO's office thrice to inquire but every time they tell me that the work has not started yet. While the AERO's office (who inspected my documents) says that the forms have been forwarded to ERO's office. I now wish to file an RTI query for getting the status. Please direct me on how to move forward as the RTI link on West Bengal Chief Election Officer's website (Chief Electoral Officer, West Bengal) is dead.

The site is e-Registration Form I did get an email and also have confirmed my application through the email link they provided. The next step in the process I guess is Verification by a staff member from CEO/Taluk/ERO office. (Pls note, its online application, we will not have a application number) My query is 1) can I frame a RTI petition for tracing what is the status of my application ? 2) if Yes, how to do that? 3) Where to submit? 4) how to submit? Sorry for many questions. Regards Raj

  22. Our housing society was planning for elections. An election officer was appointed who put up on the notice boards the dates of the elections. As per the election procedure the results were to be declared immediately after the elections were over. The elections were conducted unopposed. As per the procedure it was the duty of the election officer to declare the results. He didn't turn up during that entire day as well as later on also. Subsequently he has failed to declare the results officially. The so called newly elected members are considering themselves as the committe members occupying the office. These members have also failed to file form M-20 within the stipulated time of 15 days. I would like to know whether such elections are valid or not? Also, whether such committee should hold the office or vacate it immediately? Is it not the duty of the election officer to declare the election results officially irrespective of whether the elections were conducted opposed or unopposed?
  23. My parents have been trying to get their names into the electoral rolls but inspite of having tried for three consecutive years, they have failed. I want to use RTI to know what are the essential documents actually needed and why their names were not included. Can I ask this information or this information not even recorded? To whom should this application made? If I want to pay by demand draft, in whose name should I draw it?
  24. can i inspect or visit assembly election counting under RTI act? which section can i apply?
  25. Can i get information about any particular person like his\her income tax details or how many times that person voted in elections?
