The Telangana Information Technology Association (TITA) welcomes the directive of the Supreme Court to the central government on Monday to ensure that NRI voting through e-postal system is implemented in eight weeks.
TITA had requested the Election Commission to provide Alternative Voting Facility for Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) on April 16th 2014 to facilitate voting right to Indians who migrated to different parts of the World. TITA also stated the 4 alternatives like Network Voting, Telephone IVR Voting, Postal Vote, and Proxy Voting to the EC in the request letter. Members of TITA ‘welcome decision’ that the government has accepted the recommendations made by the election commission.
“The decision of the Supreme Court increases the accessibility to around 30% of the technical graduates who are working in different countries and now can exercise their vote in upcoming electoral system. This also helps the Information Technology professionals who travel to different countries on short term and long term assignments regularly. It would be practically impossible for the seven million Indians abroad to travel India on the polling day. We hope it will be implemented soon and it will provide an opportunity for all those who wish to vote and to participate in the electoral process.” TITA Founder & President Sundeep Kumar Makthala.
“This is the very great opportunity to all the Indians living in abroad to choose right leaders and participate in the growth of the country for best future ahead. TITA would like to congratulate and thank everyone who contributed this initiation and recognized the importance of the votes of people living abroad. TITA would like to take this moment to request all Indians living abroad to utilize this wonderful opportunity and exercise their right to build their nation.” Manoj Thatikonda, TITA NRI Wing Member from USA.
