Wednesday, 4 December 2013 - 1:59pm IST

The success stories of SVEEP (systematic voter’s education and electoral participation) will now be the part of a 300-page book, which the state’s election department is planning to publish.

The book will include the contributions and efforts made by various district election officers in increasing the awareness of the voters, which finally led to increase in voter turnout in these elections.

There will be specific chapters on the various innovative ways implemented  by the officials to increase voters’ participation and will also have pictorial details of various steps taken by the department in all districts of the state.

The book has been modelled on the basis of the one released by the election department in Gujarat in its last Assembly elections. The 270-page book lists all the achievements and contributions made by the election department in the neighbouring state.

Notably, this time under the guidance of state’s election commissions department under SVEEP officials at the district level had involved a large number of schools, colleges and several voluntary organisations to create awareness. Organisations like Rajasthan Petroleum Dealers Association (RPDA) had put up banners and posters at petrol pumps to increase the awareness while administration had also made brand ambassadors to create awareness.

Officials informed that in Gujarat, there was a widespread use of public in creating awareness where several private organisations were roped in by the department in order to raise the awareness.

However in Rajasthan, initially non-government agencies, schools, colleges, banks and private companies tried to create awareness, in the last few weeks, the government advertisements increased.
