Modi government to table bill for NRI voting

    NEW DELHI (TIP): The Modi Government has informed the Supreme Court that the union cabinet would soon consider a draft bill to enable e-ballot system for Non Resident Indians (NRIs). Once activated, the e-ballot system will enable the NRIs to vote from their respective hometown and they won’t have to fly all the way to India for casting their vote.

    The Supreme Court has directed the government to enable e-voting for NRIs within two months after making some amendments to the Representation of the Peoples Act, 1951. The Act deals with elections in the country.

    The government submitted before the Supreme Court on July 8 that the Union Cabinet would soon consider a draft Bill in this regard before it is tabled in Parliament. It is likely to be tabled in September.
