We would publish rolls with delimited ACs and rationalised Polling Stations with 1.1.2008 (NOT 1.1.2009) as the qualifying date on 31.7.2008. The period for submitting claims and objections would be very short, barely seven days - the last date for submitting being 7.8.2008. As such, DOs must be briefed properly to be present in booths from Day 1 (31.7.2008). Plans for holding hearings, whenever necessary, must also be drawn up with care by EROs well ahead since the last date of disposal of Claims and Objections is 22.8.2008. BLOs may also be trained properly as per new instructions of the Commission.
All DEOs and EROs are also expected to keep close liaison with SLA/WTL at Kolkata so that (i) there is no confusion in entering details of R1, R2 and R3 into the computers and (ii) .pdf CDs are promptly taken delivery and action taken for digital printing of the paper copies by the DEOs and/or EROs.
