Centre For Post Graduate Legal Studies

Right to Vote

Deeply concerned about impediments which hamper the exercise of the right to vote, the CHRS undertook a study with a view to documenting the inadequacies in the present system. The study recommends concrete measures to strengthen India’s democratic system and to make it more participatory. The study was aimed at helping establish a rule of law society and improve the quality of governance. In September 2010, a Report on “Making the Indian Electoral Process Inclusive: Challenges and Opportunities” was compiled by the Centre. It was disseminated widely among concerned government departments, the Election Commission of India, Members of Parliament, academics, NGOs.
