Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Karnataka bans smartphones inside polling booths
Updated : April 14, 2019 07:13 PM IST
Another poll official admitted that though the MCC has had the ban provision since 2008, it was not enforced strictly during the previous elections for reasons such as manpower shortage and absence of internet-connected smart-phones with a camera.
The number of polling booths in 28 seats across the state has increased 7 per cent from 54,265 in the 2014 elections to 58,186 this year.
