During elections, there is a lack of a fast information
channel to transmit and track complaints of violation of
Model Code of Conduct to the Election Commission. Delays in reporting
such violations may provide an easy escape route for candidates who have
violated the code. Further, lack of any documented, untampered, evidence in the

percentage of reporting was false or inaccurate, which led to wastage of
precious time of Field Units.
The new cVIGIL app launched by Election Commission of India
is expected to fill in all these gaps and create a fast-track complaint
reception and redressal system. cVIGIL provides time stamped evidentiary proof
of model code of conduct / Expenditure Violation, having live photo/video with
auto location data. This unique combination of timestamping, live photo with
auto location can be fairly relied upon by election machinery to navigate to
the right spot and take prompt action. The GIS-based dashboard provides strong
decision tool to drop and dispose of frivolous and unrelated cases even before
they are acted upon, thereby reducing the workload of election machinery on
