NRI Information Collected for Voter Registration in India

As a follow-up to the announcement of allowing Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) to be able to cast their vote during elections in India, the Indian Election Commission is collecting data pertinent to NRIs beginning today. A voter registration drive that starts today across the entire nation will have NRI information collection as one of their newest initiatives. This drive concludes on November 30, 2017. Based on this, the NRI will be able to appoint a reliable proxy to cast his vote on his behalf, even if overseas.
