Prior to the introduction of NVSP there was neither a centralized public interface for the citizens for applying for Voter ID card nor for seeking modification in their data, as it is available today. There was no online form processing and form status tracking system available in the public domain. In 2015, an urgent need was felt to provide citizens such a service which enabled them to search their names in the electoral roll. National Voters Service Portal (NVSP) was pressed into action to provide citizen friendly online interface for form submission and electoral search.
National Voters Service Portal or NVSP in short, was developed with an aim to provide single window service through a user-friendly interface for citizens for the ease of access and doing business. The use of cloud services made the National Electoral Search significantly fast and provided search services for over more than 92 crore electoral data within a blink of an eye. The national electoral search has a responsive user interface (UI) which works for both desktop and mobile.
The portal can be accessed from the online link here:
Through NVSP, a user can avail and access various services such as access the electoral list, apply for voter id card, apply online for corrections in voter’s card, view details of Polling booth, Assembly Constituency and Parliamentary constituency, and get the contact details of Booth Level officer, Electoral Registration Officer among other services.

The NVSP portal played a major role in bringing an online tool for verification, registration and updation.
