The Election Commission of India likely to introduce booth app in the forthcoming Bengal assembly polls. This in an effort to weed out bogus voters, avoid duplicate voting and give accurate details of the polling process every two hours. Bengal, the first state where this app being planned to introduce in a full-fledged manner.

The functional process consists of the creation of an encrypted QR code on the photo voter slips. The booth-level officer scans the code and allows entry of voters whose names listed. The code scanned again to verify the identity of the voter before allowing him/her to poll. The recorded entries then transmitted back to the EC’s central server. The returning officer gets to view the dashboard about real-time voter turnout and other poll events.

The multifunctional app also helps in providing advance queue information and real-time turnout information to voters and officials.

The app piloted in Hamirpur (Uttar Pradesh) in 5 polling stations, 3 assembly constituencies (Samastipur, Kasba Peth and Phagwara) of Maharashtra, Bihar and Punjab and thereafter introduced in 10 ACs of Jharkhand in November 2019.
