SOP for Counting of Service Voters using ETPBS

Note: Scanning of QR Codes should be done in sequence without fail. Form 13-C should be scanned first, followed by both the QR Code on Form 13-A and then Form 13-B of the same postal ballot. Sequence of QR Code scanning should not be change under any circumstances.

Step 1: The Outer covers (Form 13-C) which is having QR Code on lower right hand side, it will be read by the QR Code Reader and necessary valid checks will be performed for possible duplicates and verification of the service voter. A unique serial number will be provided by the computer. This serial number will also be manually marked by RO on the envelope being verified.

Step 2: If no duplicate and correct verification is found, then only outer envelope (Form 13-C) will be open.

Step 3: Open the outer cover (Form 13-C) and take out the two documents which are required to be found inside. The first one is declaration (Form 13-A) and the second one is inner cover (Form 13-B) containing the postal ballot paper.

Step 4: RO should take out the declaration from Outer Envelope, Form 13-A and the inner cover in Form 13-B.

Step 5: Now scan two QR Codes on Form 13-A one by one and after that scan the QR Code which is on lower right side on Form 13-B.

Step 6: Note down the Sl. No. generated in all the above Covers.

Step 7: If the QR Code reading does not raise any anomaly, keep Form 13B envelope and the Declaration back in Form 13C envelope and keep the envelope in a tray meant for valid Envelopes to be taken up for counting. If the QR Code reading indicates any discrepancy such as the documents not being genuine or multiple copies of the document have been received, such envelopes shall be kept in a separate tray meant for rejected envelopes.

            In the case of rejection of envelope/documents on QR code reading, the ARO in-charge of the team should see and satisfy himself about the discrepancy shown in QR code reading that results in rejection.
