Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

How to save Rs 5511 Crores

The Election Commission has over 9 lakh EVM ( Electronic Voting Machines )

After 15 years of usage, these need to be replaced

So , EC plans to buy 14 lakh EVM , at a cost of Rs 5511 cr

Each EVM costing Rs 39,364

Now , EC can save this amount ( and even earn Rs 20,000 cr ! ) , if only it spend Rs 5 cr to develop , the  Mobile App :  VotesApp : , which , in effect , converts every smart phone into a miniaturized / personalized , version of EVM  !

Those curious to know how VotesApp will work , may look up :


Vote will get recorded only when that Voter takes a Selfie - which will get matched automatically , with his Aadhar Card photo 

After reading , you may even want to file a PIL in Supreme Court for this Electoral Reform !

  1. Sir.. I have a query regarding this. No doubt, it would be a great idea to adopt but I have a serious concern. Keep other things aside, first of all I am sure that this APP VOTESAPP will require internet connectivity to download/operate/vote. Is it also possible to provide internet connectivity as well as smartphones to every voter in India as there are LESS THAN HALF OF THE POPULATION HAVING INTERNET ACCESS ?

  2. Dear Ravi ,

    You have a very valid concern but you will agree that , in the past one year ( since your comment ) , internet connectivity has considerably improved
    In another 4 years ( in time for 2024 general elections ) , this will cease to be an issue
