Won't commandeer luxury cars - EC

The Election Commission has decided that it will not commandeer luxury cars for election duty. During the 2012 assembly elections, a PIL was filed complaining against the EC officials for arbitrarily taking possession of luxury cars and SUVs. This PIL was disposed of in 2013 when the government increased the remuneration for such vehicle requisitions.

In response to a petition filed by a Navsari's co-operative society, the EC and state government told the high court that they had issued strict instructions earlier this month to all officials concerned that no luxury cars should be requisitioned for election duty.
