Previous Electoral Rolls

Question

Hi,

The latest electoral Rolls are easily available online ( eg. 2017 revision). But I require the older electoral rolls which were used for previous assembly elections as well as local Panchayat elections in previous years.

Are these available online or will I have to file an RTI request

Should RTI be filed with Election Commission of India or the State Election Commission.

I don't require the full roll only a particular part no of a constituency.

Do I have to be a voter in that constituency. Although I am not a voter in that constituency but I have property as well as house along with ration card.

Do I have to give a detailed reason

 

Sent from my Moto G (4) using RTI INDIA mobile app

Q1Are these available online or will I have to file an RTI request

You should necessarily file RTI Application to State Election officer or District Election Officer (He may be at District Collector or Corporation. If the information is very old, it is very difficult to get but when there is no alternative a sincere attempt may be made stating District, Name of the constituency.

 

Q.2 Should RTI be filed with Election Commission of India or the State Election Commission.

As per feed back received the response from Central is remote, and it is better to try at District level as per Reply in Post No.2.

 

Q3 I don't require the full roll only a particular part no of a constituency

You can make such application as required by you.

 

Q4 Do I have to be a voter in that constituency. Although I am not a voter in that constituency but I have property as well as house along with ration card.

The only qualification to exercise right to information under RTI Act is you must be a citizen of India, and you are empowered to seek any information on record and no proofs are generally required.

 

Do I have to give a detailed reason

Both as per RTI Act, Full bench CIC decision, HC judgments, an applicant need not provide any reasons for seeking information under RTI Act unless the information was exempted and to establish larger public interest.

 

Search website of district collector, read RTI rules and regulations, file prescribed application before NODAL State Public Information officer, Collector's office............., enclose RTI fee in the mode as stated in website, file application through Regd post, paste the receipt on your copy of application, track the delivery status after one week in Indiapost website, record due date as 40 days from date of sending application, come back after 40 days, if you still need any guidance.

You will not get any reply in the thread, as you have invaded in a thread and hijacked to to your issue. You have to open a new thread and seek guidance in that thread.

As per Rules regarding Registration of Electorate in the Electoral Rolls, property is not a criteria. Because, a person can have a property at number of places. Main criteria is continuous residence of more than 180 days at a particular place in that Assembly Constituency.
