The Lok Sabha Election: 2.6 million Voter Ink bottles need for 90 million Voters

MAR 27 (WTN) - In the election after the voting, there is an excitement of the Voter Ink placed on the finger, but do you know where the Voter Ink manufactured and how much does it cost? If you do not know all this, then today we describe you about it in detail. As you know, during the election, the ink is placed on the index finger of the left hand.

For your information, let you know that during the election, the expenditure of Voter Ink placed on the voters' finger comes in crores. The work of making and supplying Voter Inc in India is done by Hyderabad's Rayudu Labs and the Mysore Paints and Varnish Limited of Mysore. Both companies supply Voter Ink in many other countries other than India.

According to the information, for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Election Commission has ordered 26 lakhs bottles of Voter Ink, and it will be used in marking on the finger of nearly 90 million voters after voting. The price of Voter Ink, which is being made for 90 million voters, is being estimated Rs 33 crores.

This time, the price of Voter Ink has increased more than two and half times as compared to the 2009 Lok Sabha election. At the time of the 2009 Lok Sabha election, about Rs 12 crores spent on Voter Ink. Considering the increasing number of the voters, more than 4.5 lakh bottles of Voter Inc increased this time, compared to the last time. For your information, let you know that there is 10 ml ink in a Voter Ink bottle so that around 350 voters' fingers could be marked.

Until the Lok Sabha elections of 2004, only one dot was applied to the voter's finger during voting, but in 2006, the Election Commission decided to mark a long straight line at the place of dot, which also led to the increase in the consumption of Voter Ink, and After this, two bottles of the Voter Inc are given to every polling booth. In this Lok Sabha election, according to the population, in the largest state of UP, approximately 3 lakh bottles of Voter Ink will be required, while only 200 bottles of Voter Ink will be needed in Lakshadweep.

For the first time in India, the Voter Ink was used in the 1962 election; it was the third General Election of the country. Voter Ink is prepared on the basis of the chemical formula of the National Physical Laboratory of India. Voter Ink is not like ordinary ink, and it dried after applying on the finger after 60 seconds.

In fact, the Voters Ink is a dye in silver nitrate. For your information, let you know that silver nitrate is colorless, and the color on the finger is of dye. After applying Voter Ink on the finger, silver nitrate acts with the sodium chloride present in the sweat coming out of the skin, and makes silver chloride, while the silver chloride breaks into metallic silver after coming in contact with sun light. Since metallic silver is not soluble in water or varnish, it can’t be easily removed after applied on the body.
