    Candidate App - Election Permission


    Earlier candidates and political parties were informed about their candidature and permissions status only by way of paper. There was no online method for intimation and the candidate had to visit the office to get the details of their permissions. 

    Presently nomination and permission is filed through a web application namely ENCORE. To make it accessible for candidates so as to check the status and get the updates of his application, the android app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store called ‘Candidate App’.

    The link to download the application is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=suvidha.eci.gov.in.candidateapp&hl=en_IN. This mobile app allows candidates to check the status of their nominations and permissions filed via ENCORE. 

    This application was launched by ECI on 13 March 2019.

    Functionality/ Features of the application

    Candidate App is used to track the nomination/ permission application status. Once the application is registered in ENCORE by the Returning Officer, the periodic status updates are available via notifications.

    •  User authentication through mobile number and OTP.
    •  Track nomination/permission application status.

    Outcome of the application

    Candidates can now get the live status of submitted applications, candidates can check and track their submitted applications status using the mobile app which is very helpful in application processing.

    The application boosts the transparency initiatives of the ECI. The candidate gets to know on a real time basis whether  their application has been rejected or accepted. 

    In future, the candidate can fill in the nomination and receive permission directly from the mobile app.
