Description
It is a matter of immense satisfaction to me that our book How Indian Votes is serving its intended purpose - evident from the fact that the Fourth Edition of the book is now in your hands. The third Third Edition book was Published towards the end of 2013 on the eve of the General Elections to the Lok Sabha and several state legislative assemblies which were then due in the first half of 2014, with a view to apprising all stakeholders of the latest developments in the laws, practice and procedures relating to the conduct of elections. Needless to say that the said general election to the Lok Sabha held in to March-May 2014 was the largest man-managed event in the world ever, surpassing all earlier such events, in terms of sheer size and magnitude. Another aspect of personal satisfaction for me was that I,too, had to play a constrictive role, as Legal Advisor to the Election Commission of India, in the conduct of such mammoth exercise involving nearly 840 million electors of senior functionaries who acted as Chief Electoral Officers, District Election Officers, Electoral Registration Officers, Returning Officers and their supporting staff personally told me that whenever they were confronted with a complex issue, they first looked into our book and , in most of the cases, found a satisfactory answer thereto in the book.
