NGOs to enroll Delhi University students as voters

Five non-governmental organisations will Tuesday start online registration of university students in the voters' list for the Delhi assembly elections to be held December 4, an official of the Delhi Election Commission said.

The NGOs will not just enrol a large number of students but also ensure that they cast their votes, the official said.

As the NGOs are still to get permission for the enrollment drive from all Delhi University colleges, only 28 colleges will be covered initially in the first phase of the online registration procedure, the official said.

Starting with Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College and Miranda House in the north campus, the NGOs will move to colleges in the south campus over ten days, the official said.

"Online registration procedure at Jamia Millia Islamia, Indraprastha University and Ambedkar University will be carried out once the procedure in all the 28 Delhi University colleges is over," Harshit Srivastav, founder-member of NGO Samarpan, said.

"The NGOs will focus on the outlook of youth toward the formation and functioning of various governmental policies and how these can be modified for the betterment of society because today's students are society's future," he said.

"To bring more and more students in the ambit of the voters list, street plays and personal counselling will be conducted," said Uttkarsh, another founder-member of Samarpan.
