Bangalore, Feb 13 (UNI) The Karnataka Election Commission has developed a new software to make electoral rolls foolproof, State Chief Electoral Officer R Ramaseshan said today.
Addressing the press here, he said the new software would be put on trial at Krishnagiri in Tamil Nadu.
The Election Commission had given its approval for 'State Enhanced Electoral Roll System' after a presentation made recently in New Delhi.
Once its efficacy was proved in Krishnagiri, steps would be taken to introduce the software across the country, he said.
Detailing the salient features of the software, he said it made electoral rolls accessible to public at any given time.
People in urban areas could get their names included in the voters list online and data entry made at village level. This would help decentralise enrolment work to large extent, he claimed.
To a question, he said six software developers worked for over eight months to develop the software.
