    Video: The Troubles with a Mobile Phone Ban on Polling Station Premises

    A recent election-related directive issued by the collector of Maharashtra’s Pune district triggered a discussion about the ban on the use of mobile phones within a 100-meter radius of polling stations. 

    In a video message, posted by Punekar News on X, the Collector appealed to citizens to keep their mobile phones at their homes or in their cars before entering the station. He stated that the prohibition is essential to maintain the secrecy of the voting process and prevent people from capturing pictures and videos of the arrangements at the booths to share on social media platforms.

    Similar directions have been issued in several other constituencies across the country. In this video, MediaNama journalist Sarasvati T discusses why a blanket prohibition on mobile phones in the polling station premises is problematic.
