The party has started distributing application forms and will accept filled-up forms from ticket-seekers till September 30. The screening committee will scrutinise all the forms from the first week of October.

The idea of application through prescribed forms is  reportedly a brainchild of the party vice-president Rahul Gandhi, who wanted a transparent and improved candidate selection process.

Senior Delhi Congress leaders said the 27-member election committee, which held its first meeting on Tuesday, has decided to finalise the criteria on which the aspirants will be tested and shortlisted.

While the electoral dark horse Aam Aadmi Party has already declared its candidates on more than 50 of the 70 assembly seats and the Bahujan Samaj Party has also finalised almost all its candidates, the two most prominent political parties - the Congress and the BJP - have just initiated the process.

While the aspirants who have already been nominated by the district and block level office bearers of the party do not have to apply again, Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Jai Prakash Agarwal said other ticket-seekers will have to give complete details about their personal life and political experience in the form.

“Apart from their primary membership number of the party and other basic details, the aspirants will also have to say if they have ever contested elections against the Congress and their achievements in the political and social life. We have asked them to furnish details of criminal cases registered against them,” Agarwal said.

According to senior party leaders, the screening teams of the All India Congress Committee will form further smaller groups to minutely scrutinise all the forms and start short-listing the candidates.
