The management of General Observers including Police and Expenditure is always a challenge. There was a need for an online deployment system for effective order generations and timely notifications.
Election Commission of India has developed an online portal for database management of all types of observer’s i.e. general observer, police observer and expenditure observer. All the latest instructions of the Commission are available on the portal for the observers. It allows observers to verify and correct their personal information including important bank details for quick remittance and Local Mobile number for getting important SMS sent by the commission. They can check their deployment details online and can fill/upload Reports in their portal. They can also check their notice board for any information/instruction sent by the Commission.
The portal can be accessed from the online link here:
