Municipal polls to be conducted through EVMs
KT NEWS SERVICE
SRINAGAR, Aug 8: The State Administrative Council (SAC) Wednesday approved “The Jammu and Kashmir Municipal Corporations (Amendment) Bill, 2018" facilitating conduct of forthcoming elections to the Municipal Corporations in the State through EVMs.

A provision made in this regard in 2016 had lapsed.

Presently, elections to Municipal Corporations are conducted using ballot papers under the provisions of J&K Municipal Corporation Act, 2000. In order to conduct these elections through EVMs, certain amendments were required to be made in the Act, so as to provide for making rules for use of EVMs in these elections.

With the passing of this amendment, the forthcoming Urban Local Body elections in the state of J&K in September-October, 2018, will be conducted using EVMs.
