The Election department had for the first time, put a stall in 2011 at ITF ground, Port Blair during the popular Island Tourism Festival (ITF) 2011 which was celebrated from 5th to 17th Jan 2011 at Port Blair. The Election Department stall was inaugurated by the Hon’le Lt. Governor, A & N Islands on 5th Jan 2011.
The focus of the Election department stall was on three areas :-
Photo exhibition of Election process showing voters & covering distinguished people, histrorical events and a varied cross section of society throughout the country.
Receipt of applications for enrolment in electoral roll and issue of EPIC cards to eligible voters.
Computers with software & facility for searching the ‘Electoral roll’.
The stall evoked tremendous response from the visitors to the ITF function on all the days. It was no wonder then that the Election department stall received the First Prize in the ITF 2011 under the Government Stall category and the certificate was given by Chief Secretary, A & N Islands in the name of the ‘Chief Electoral Office, A & N Islands” on the concluding day function.
