In attendance were Deputy Election Officer of Ranchi, Mr. Vivek Kumar Suman, State Nodal Officer, State Police Department (SPD), Income Tax Department (ITD), State Excise Department (SED), Central Goods and Service Tax (CGST), State Goods and Service Tax (SGST) and Commercial Tax (GST and CST), Revenue Intelligence Directorate (DRI), Enforcement Directorate (ED), Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), Border Security Force (BSF), Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Assam Rifles, Indian Coast Guard (ICG), Railway Protection Force (RPF), Postal Department (DOP), Forest Department, Airports Authority of India (AAI), State Civil Aviation Department (SCD), Civil Aviation Security Bureau (BCAS), State Transport Department officials, and other relevant officers.

Key Directives Issued by District Election Officer:

During the meeting, the District Election Officer instructed the district-level nodal officers of Enforcement Agencies for Lok Sabha Election 2024 to ensure compliance with all directives issued by the Election Commission of India. Emphasizing the effectiveness of Flying Squads and Static Surveillance Teams in sync with the announcement of election dates, he ensured that all related Enforcement Agencies at the district level would diligently adhere to their assigned tasks as per the directives issued by the Election Commission of India.

Mr. Rahul Kumar Sinha, District Election Officer-cum-Deputy Commissioner of Ranchi, directed all relevant officers to ensure prompt action in accordance with their departmental regulations upon the seizure of illegal cash, liquor, narcotics, and other prohibited items by the Flying Squads and Static Surveillance Teams, following real-time entries into the Election Seizure Management System.

What is the Election Seizure Management System (ESMS)?

The Election Commission of India has developed a technical platform for real-time updates called the Election Seizure Management System (ESMS). This platform is designed to ensure real-time updates from the field for the seizure of illegal items. During elections, the Election Commission actively prevents the use of illegal cash, liquor, drugs, and other prohibited substances. The Election Commission also seizes such illegal items during this period.

The new CEVIGIL app introduced by the Election Commission of India aims to address these shortcomings and facilitate faster complaint reception and resolution. CEVIGIL is a mobile application specifically designed for citizens to report violations of the Model Code of Conduct and expenditure-related violations during elections. The unique feature of this app is that it only captures live photos and videos, along with auto-location within the app, ensuring that the Flying Squads can access digital evidence in a timely manner for effective action.
