Ranchi EW News: The Chief Electoral Officer of Jharkhand, K. Ravi Kumar, stated that on voting day, ordinary citizens should not face any inconvenience due to vehicular movement. Particularly, voters traveling to exercise their franchise should not encounter any difficulties reaching their polling stations. He emphasized that the Election Commission of India’s endeavor is to maximize voter turnout in Jharkhand state. Addressing the officials responsible for vehicle management regarding the Vehicle Management System (VMS) developed by the National Informatics Centre, he highlighted that this system would facilitate smooth management of vehicles for elections. Payment to vehicle owners, petrol pump owners, and vehicle operators related to election duties can be settled on the day after polling, ensuring transparency and timely payments. He was addressing a training session on VMS organized for officials involved in vehicle management for elections across all districts.

Effective Implementation of Model Code of Conduct to Ensure Compliance with Motor Vehicle Act Provisions

He instructed all transportation officials, administrative staff, and police officers to ensure prompt action against any unauthorized use of vehicles, banners, advertisements, or colorful stickers without proper authorisation, in accordance with the provisions of the Motor Vehicle Act and the effective implementation of the Model Code of Conduct. He also emphasized that individuals involved in willful violations in transportation arrangements during elections would face consequences.

The Chief Electoral Officer highlighted the importance of celebrating upcoming Lok Sabha elections as a grand festival of democracy. He stressed the need to work for the convenience of voters and election-related staff to ensure a clean, impartial, and smooth voting process. A login panel has been created on the VMS web portal for all district officials, enabling them to manage vehicles used in election activities and make payments to vendors. He urged officials to promptly update backlogged data on the portal to avoid any payment-related issues during Lok Sabha elections. Continuous monitoring of the Vehicle Management System will be ensured at the office level across all districts to manage transportation effectively during elections. The training workshop included live demonstrations of the VMS web portal by officials from the NIC through both online and offline mediums. Secretary of the Transport Department, Kripa Nand Jha, and Inspector General of Police, Indrajit Mahatha, also addressed the program. District Transport Officers, Motor Vehicle Inspectors, and relevant Deputy Superintendents of Police from all districts were present at the event.
