TSEC GHMC elections preparation schedule

TSEC GHMC elections preparation schedule 

The term of the current elected body of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), which was elected in February 2016, ends on February 10, 2021.

Officials discussed pre-election activities, and decided to make a plan of action. This would include programmes to train all GHMC officials, including the Circle level, to acquaint them with software applications in the Te-Poll application, developed by the Centre for Good Governance for preparation and publication of Electoral Rolls, randomisation of polling and counting personnel and election process etc.


The SEC said it should be aimed at using maximum technology for expeditious, error-free and transparent election processes with the help of the CGG team, including certain innovations like Face Recognition Software and other pilots, after thorough scrutiny.

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, all the precautionary guidelines would have to be followed during the elections on par with the guidelines issued by ECI. Considering the challenges in view of the pandemic, officials elaborately discussed on whether to hold elections by using EVMs or Ballot Boxes. A decision on this was yet to be taken.

The meeting however decided to fix a voter strength of 800 per polling station to ensure physical distancing norms. Advance action would be initiated for accessing and obtaining employees information in advance from GHMC area as well as surrounding districts, to draft them as polling personnel and also for building the employee database.

The State Election Commission (SEC) on Saturday set the ball rolling for the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections by releasing the schedule for publication of the new electoral rolls.  Officials said if everything goes according to plan, the notification for GHMC polls will be released immediately thereafter, most likely by November 15.

According to the schedule, ward-wise draft electoral rolls will be published on November 7. Objections and claims will be received Assembly constituency-wise from November 8 to November 11.

In the interim, SEC will hold a meeting with representatives of political parties, the GHMC commissioner and corporation’s election cell on November 9. Circle-level meetings with representatives of political parties will be held on November 10.

GHMC deputy commissioners will deal with objections and claims over electoral rolls on November 12. The electoral roll will be finalized by the deputy commissioners at the circle level by November 13.

The term of existing corporators is scheduled to expire on February 10, 2021. Article 243-U (3) (a) of the Constitution and Section 7 of GHMC Act require that elections are completed three months before expiry of the five-year term.

In this regard, Arvind Kumar, principal secretary (municipal administration and urban development) Arvind Kumar and GHMC commissioner D.S. Lokesh Kumar met SEC officials and held discussions on completing elections to the civic body within the stipulated time.

Arvind Kumar apprised the SEC that the government, through GO No. 561 dated October 31, 2020, has issued orders continuing the delimited status of wards (finalised during 2016 GHMC elections) for the ensuing civic body polls too. Likewise, orders have also been issued to continue reservations of wards for STs, SCs, BCs and women as decided during the previous corporation elections.
Accordingly, while issuing the notification for preparation and publication of ward-wise electoral rolls for GHMC, the SEC suggested that the entire GHMC machinery focus on election work from now onwards till completion of polling.

The commission also instructed that ward-wise electoral rolls be prepared by deputy municipal commissioners with meticulous care, so that conduct of elections passes off smoothly.
