Kite Festival by Election Commission for Voter Awareness

I received an intimation that the Election Commission of India would launch a SVEEP - Systematic Voters' Education and Electoral Participation - Programme at Eco Park through the celebration of a kite festival on Viswakarma Puja day (17 Sep), in the afternoon.
Viswakarma Puja is of course a kite flying day in Kolkata / Bengal. It is a good idea to build upon this synergy for a cause. Remembering my days as Chief Electoral Officer, West Bengal, I spoke to Sanjay Bansal, DM North 24-Paraganas that Hidco will extend all help.

  1. Dear Sir,

    Regarding solar trees, it seems Mahindra & Mahindra already has a version of "solar tree" available -


    Maybe Eco-Park can install a few of these to encourage eco-friendly electric cars like Reva E2o. The listed price is Rs 1.14 lakh for a 1 kWp Solar and DC-DC charger. Maybe they can give a discount since installation at Eco-park will help them market their product / raise awareness.
