Corporate Houses & Federations
Realising the catalytic role Public Sector Enterprises and Corporate Houses could play in enhancing citizen engagement, a Framework of Engagement was developed in 2013 for collaboration with the Corporate Houses in the field of voter education and participation. Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections 2014, a national level partnership was forged with various federations like FICCI, CII, NASSCOM, ASSOCHAM, TATA Global Beverages and CELL.
Media Houses/ Radio and TV Channels
Zee Media Corporation Ltd was the first media house to partner with ECI which was further strengthened during the Lok Sabha Elections 2014 through the ZEE campaign ‘Apka Vote ApkiTaaqat’. RED FM 93.5, Digital Radio (Delhi) Broadcasting Ltd carried out an intensive awareness campaign ‘Button dabaakebajaa’ during the same elections. Television channels like ET NOW and CNBC-TV 18 also contributed to ECI’s efforts through short films and audio-visuals on voter awareness.
In the bygone elections, there have been successful collaborations with various government departments and organization that have enabled SVEEP to reach out to a wider population with its messages of voter awareness and education. These collaborations have been in terms of creation of multimedia products, broadcasts and most importantly the lending of support by the human resource for one-to-one interaction with the voters and their subsequent empowerment.
Non-Government Organisations/ Civil Society Organisations
In addition to numerous NGOs, CSOs, RWAs, groups and individuals who support the efforts of election managers in the State and Districts for voters’ education through their voluntary and partnered work, United Nations Development Programme has been a significant partner for SVEEP initiatives, especially for production of voter edutainment material, publications and organising voters’ festivals.
