BBMP: Waste Management and Electoral Roll Management

Dakshina Kannada had 76.6% turnout as per news reports.

The same CEO, but a different DEO and EROs. CEO-KA is unable to get good work from BBMP staff. The rolls maintained by BBMP have large % of voters who have moved out of station or out of the world. It has about 20% suspected duplicate entries. We can further prove it if we get voter records with photographs. Also, because of wrong entries, people are turned away from booths – well, we have an example when a lady was turned away because her sex is shown as male, husband, who is 10 years older is shown as her father, though it may be a stray incident. You would understand the reason why I have been reporting impossible age differences between parent and child in electoral rolls. Such smells help the organisation to validate records. Registration process is unfriendly.

If we can get English version of Dakshina Kannada rolls, we can analyse the difference in quality and understand why the turnout is better.

BBMP’s electoral roll management is not better than their waste management. Do they find some difference between solid waste and an elector?

  1. As a polling agent I saw multiple cases where the wife was older than the husband.
    I am not sure If I stay in a liberal community or it is a result of the CEO being liberal with the voter list.
