The survey will be completed in one week’s time
MYSORE: Mayor Ayub Khan on Saturday launched a door-to-door survey as part of the exercise to revise the voters’ list here. The exercise will be carried out simultaneously in three wards — 1, 20 and 42 — on an experimental basis.
The Mysore City Corporation (MCC) launched the exercise following widespread complaints of missing names in the voters’ list, during the elections to the State Assembly.
The drive was symbolically launched on C.V. Road where the mayor, the area corporator and a team of officials visited the houses in the locality to look for missing voters and to note down their names. They gave Form No. 6 to those whose names had been missing in the list, for inclusion.
The mayor has appealed to the residents to furnish particulars sought by the enumerators to facilitate the corporation in updating the list. The survey would be completed in one week’s time and a team of corporation officials will scrutinise the list before incorporating the names in the voters’ list. Based on the feedback from the officials on the exercise, and making changes to the drive, if required, the exercise would be launched in the remaining wards.
The members of the booth committees, the area corporators, the public, the representatives of the NGOs and the officials from the corporation are involved in the survey, which will be done from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.
The Assistant Commissioners, the Revenue Officers and the Assistant Revenue Officers will supervise the exercise. Described as the first of its kind to be taken up by a city municipal corporation in the State, the revision of voters’ list will cover all 65 wards coming under Chamaraja, Narasimharaja and Krishnaraja Assembly constituencies.
