IPL matches to be used to create awareness among voters

According to an EC official, the experiment has already started with a match played between the Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings which took place at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on April 3.

He said, at that match, all relevant material was displayed for creating awareness amongst the voters.

The officer informed that the initiative was taken following a suggestion by the Election Commission of India which had asked the office of the Maharashtra Chief Electoral Officer to contact the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for arranging a voter awareness campaign.

He said that voters will also be appealed in a similar fashion during upcoming IPL matches to be held in Mumbai.
