NEW DELHI: The Election Commission on Tuesday launched a mobile App “Cvigil” for the people to report a violation of model code of conduct in times of elections.
The Chief Election Commissioner OP Rawat launched the app on Tuesday.
“cVIGIL is a user-friendly and easy to operate Android application. It will be operational only where elections are announced. However, the beta version of the app will be made available for the public and election staff to download so that they can acquaint themselves with its features and also try sending dummy data,” the EC said in a media statement.
The EC stated that upon successful completion of the trial that is underway, the application will be made available for general use by all, right from the forthcoming Assembly elections in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram and Rajasthan. “The practical use of the app during the four-state Assembly polls will also serve as a pilot initiative before it is put to extensive use during the next Lok Sabha General Elections,” the EC added.
