RWA and AOA members to act as booth level volunteers for next state elections

Members of RWAs and AOAs will be acting as Booth Level Volunteers (BLVs) for the state assembly elections next year. As BLVs, they will be verifying and collecting electoral forms such as Form 6* and Form 8** from their allocated zones. The BLVs will then submit the forms to the Booth Level Officers (BLOs), or tehsildars.

The decision was taken at a meeting between the RWA Federation Ghaziabad and the Chief Election Commissioner of India. The latter directed the Electoral Officer (UP) and the District Magistrate of Ghaziabad to consider members of RWAs and AOAs as BLVs for better management at the grass-roots level.

TP Tyagi, president of RWA Federation Ghaziabad, told City Spidey that BLVs will also be verifying the authenticity of voters in their area and amending the voter list as deemed necessary. The list will be further screened by the District Electoral Officer (DEO).

Representatives of the federation had also held a meeting with Priti Jayaswal, ADM City, and Gyanendra Singh, ADM Executive, on September 23. In the meeting it was decided that:
  1. One supervisor will be nominated for each of the six zones of Ghaziabad — Indirapuram, Vijay Nagar, Mohan Nagar, Kavi Nagar, Vasundhara and City Zone.
  2. Federation will nominate BLVs from high-rise societies and row houses, who will further coordinate with the zonal supervisors.
  3. Soft and hard copies of the voter lists will be provided to the RWA Federation Ghaziabad.
  4. Daily registration camps will be set up in societies on the recommendation of supervisors and BLVs till October 15.
The RWA Federation Ghaziabad has issued a list of important points to keep in mind while filling in the electoral forms:
  • Residents enrolling as voters for the first time can fill in and submit Form 6 along with date-of-birth proof.
  • Residents will have to carefully fill in Section IV of Form 6 as a declaration.
  • Residents who have shifted within the same legislative constituency should fill in Form 8A for transposition of entry in electoral roll.


*Form 6 of the Election Commission of India is required in case of fresh applications for inclusion of name in electoral roll.

**Form 8 of the Election Commission of India is used for any correction to details already entered in the existing electoral roll.
