By NewsGram Staff-Writer

The election commission is planning to organise Gram Sabha across all villages of the country to spread awareness about the revision of electoral roll.

Issuing an official instruction to every state authority, the commission stated that the Sabha will be promoted to inform and encourage people about special summary revision of photo electoral rolls. The meetings would be held in all villages across the country as well as in certain municipal corporations.

In these public meetings, the existing roll will be read out and any corrections would be done on the spot. The date, time and location of such Sabha would be decided locally by the administration.

All states under the directive are advised to take a call on the revision of photo electoral rolls before January 1, 2016. After revision, the concluding rolls would get published in every state.

Having a widespread effect, the Gram Sabhas have already started featuring in villages and municipal wards of Tripura. Additional chief electoral officer of Tripura, Debashish Modak said, “last year, such an initiative was introduced in all the states under the name of National Electoral Roll Purification and Authentication Programme, which was designed to eliminate errors and ensure clean electoral lists.”
