Chief electoral officer Rajeev Ranjan on Saturday said that the extensive use of technology will ensure there is practically no scope for contesting candidates to violate the model code of conduct or obscure their election expenditure.

Ranjan said this at a meeting with district electoral officers and other election commission officials from six districts — Gurugram, Mahendragarh, Sonepat, Jhajjar, Rewari and Rohtak — at the PWD rest house.

“The chief electoral officer said that cVigil app is being used for the first time in the election this time, through which any person can upload photos or videos of violation of model code of conduct or other election-related irregularities,” a spokesperson for the district administration said.

Officials said during the meeting that it was discussed that eligible voters could get themselves registered by downloading an online form at www.nvsp.in.
