CEC Launches KYC App: Check Candidate Criminal Records

In a move to empower voters ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar unveiled the Know Your Candidate (KYC) mobile application. This tool, available on both Android and iOS platforms, allows voters to scrutinize the criminal backgrounds of electoral candidates within their constituencies.

CEC Launches KYC App:Ensuring Transparency and Accountability

CEC Rajiv Kumar emphasized the importance of voters’ right to access crucial information about candidates, including criminal records, assets, and liabilities. Through the KYC app, voters can now independently verify such details, ensuring transparency and accountability in the electoral process.

At the press conference, the Election Commission announced the schedule for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, spanning across seven phases. Simultaneously, assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Arunachal Pradesh, and Sikkim will also be conducted in separate single phases.

Expanding on the KYC app’s functionalities, CEC Kumar highlighted the obligation for parties and candidates with criminal backgrounds to disclose relevant information to the public. Candidates with such records are required to publish this information multiple times in newspapers and on television.

CEC Launches KYC App:Promoting Ethical Candidate Selection

CEC Kumar underscored the responsibility of political parties in justifying their selection of candidates with criminal backgrounds over other contenders. The KYC app serves as a tool for voters to hold parties accountable for their candidate choices, promoting ethical standards in electoral politics.

The KYC app is readily accessible on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, offering voters a convenient means to vet electoral candidates. Additionally, the Election Commission provided a QR code for easy app download on its website.

Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh are scheduled for May 13, while Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim will go to polls on April 19. Bypolls for 26 Assembly seats will coincide with the Lok Sabha elections, further emphasizing the significance of informed voting through the KYC app.
