ANNOUNCEMENT ON POSTAL BALLOTS – DECISION TAKEN ICAI ELECTION

This refers to the written objections received, amongst others, on need for verification of signatures and bulk posting allegedly made.

following decision, amongst others, has been taken under Rule
39 (reproduced below) for disregarding the postal envelopes received:
Ballot papers which are consecutively posted and for which clear cut
evidence is available in the postal receipt/envelope itself are treated as bulk posting in the context of Clause (4) of Schedule 7 to the Chartered Accountants (Election to the Council) Rules, 2006 (reproduced hereunder), the objective of which is to prevent misuse of postal ballots by persons other than the bonafide voters and in the light of the election dispute case settled by the Election Tribunal in the past.
