Describing the Suwidha Portal as a very suitable platform for political parties/candidates for online nomination and approval etc., he said that candidates can facilitate the nomination process by creating their account by visiting https://suvidha.eci.gov.in/. He said that apart from filling up the nomination papers online, this online portal would be very helpful in taking advance time for depositing the security deposit and appearing before the Returning Officer. Once the online nomination form has been filled, the candidate can take a print of it, attest it, and attach it with the required documents, then submit it in person to the Returning Officer. He said that apart from online, there is also an offline process of nomination but filling up online forms would greatly reduce the scope for errors. He appealed to all parties to co-operate in the entire election process.
