Lok Sabha Elections-2024: MCC violations to be reported online, tracking complaints made easier

Jammu: Election Commission of India (ECI) has launched an online application for citizens to report Model Code of Conduct (MCC) violations during the election period.

 

The application is called ‘cVIGIL’ to denote vigilant citizens of our country who can play a proactive and responsible role in conduct of free and fair elections.

 

This innovative application ‘cVIGIL’ allows vigilant citizens to give live reports on incidents of MCC violation within minutes of having witnessed them. They don’t have to rush any more to the office of the Returning Officer in their assembly constituency. Once an incident of MCC violation is reported by cVIGIL, it would be forwarded to a flying squad for investigation. In case of a registered complaint, a unique ID number would be generated to allow the citizen to track their complaint status. Anonymous complaints do not get any identification numbers for tracking purpose.

 

The citizens can use cVIGIL only to report MCC violation cases. For other complaints, they can use the facility available in the mobile app/website of ECI Citizen Services.

 

For more information, the citizens are encouraged to visit the official website of Election Commission of India https://www.eci.gov.in/. The application is available on both Android and IOS devices.
