The district administration has asked printing press owners to obtain written declarations from political parities or candidates regarding printing of election-related posters and pamphlets, and written submission of information regarding election advertisement material in relevant forms.

Three copies of the same should be submitted to the Collector within three days of printing the material.

Failure to furnish the documents would entail six months imprisonment or fine up to `2,000. Press owners have also been instructed not to print publicity material without the name and address of the publisher.

Marriage hall owners have been asked to check if political parties had obtained the permission of the Assistant Returning Officer (ARO) concerned for political meetings in halls. Feasts and distribution of cash or prizes during election-related meetings in marriage halls have been banned by the ECI. Besides, installing of banners and cut-outs have also been banned in the marriage halls where political/ election campaign meetings are held, including cases where the marriage hall owners themselves are members of political parties, whose meetings are being held.
