The Election Commission of India has launched a new SMS based electoral enquiry system in Arunachal Pradesh. The voter has to SMS the elector’s photo ID number to obtain relevant information.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) is going to launch ‘electoral enquiry’ system in Arunachal Pradesh for providing correct information to the voters for their convenience.

The unique SMS system will provide electoral information to the voters, who want to know his or her electoral details.

To get the details one has to only send an SMS to a particular mobile number with his or her own EPIC (elector’s photo ID) number to get the details.

After few seconds, the sender will receive information through a reply SMS by an auto generated system which will provide relevant information to the particular electors to ensure his or her trouble free casting of votes.

The SMS number will be announced later by public announcement, sources informed.

The information like, EPIC number, name of elector, Assembly constituency number, part number or polling station number, elector’s serial number in the photo electoral role of particular polling stations will be received by the senders, sources said. 

The ECI is also going to introduce an online public complaint lodging system on the electoral officer’s website (ceoarunachal. nic. in)  to lodge public grievances.
