PROCESS ABOUT HOW VOTING IS DONE


Elections are on the cards. The voting procedures are not complete until you get a mark on your finger with a permanent ink which will take atleast 10 to 15 days to get erased . Looking at your ink-stained finger have you ever wondered from where this ink comes from and what is the significance of this ink ?


The ink called as the Indelible ink is used as a security feature to prevent double voting.The ink is manufactured by the Mysore Paints and Varnish Limited in short they are called as (MVPL), and are located in Mysore Karnataka .

The company is the only manufacturing unit in the country to produce and supply indelible ink to the Election Commission.The ink-marking rule was changed in 2006 from a 'dot' to a 'line' from top of nail upto the first joint of the finger. The rule changed and so the quantity, which is doubled to 10ml in each phial
Each polling booth is given two bottles of 10ml each for making the line on about 700 voters.
