Note prepared by Kaytek Director - Mr. Mahesh Khatri on how to check your name in the electoral records.
Important - Ensure that you are using Microsoft's Internet Explorer Browser (in my case Version 6.0).
Please note that those of you who are using Firefox browser may not be able to do the same as the downloads use Microsoft technologies as it may not work with the same.
These are the steps to be followed (Numbered from 1.0 to 6.0 below)

2.1 - In case your residence as per electoral records is in Mumbai city, select 'Mumbai city'.

Keyboard and Typing information
The name you are searching for should be typed using English language only.
Use of following tips will help you find the name in a much faster way :
1. Type surname first. It should be complete.
2. First name should be after one space after surname.
3. Father / Husband / Mother's name must be entered in the second column. It gives fast search and accurate search.
4. If you are not able to find the name please try some combination of characters e.g. 'u' instead of 'oo' 'i' instead of 'ee'.
5. Try typing First name then Surname if you are not able to search the name or if Surname is not available.
6. Try typing extra 'a' in words to avoid confusion as 'sh' differs from 'sah'.
In Indian scripts there are many vowels like this. To avoid confusion, type name clearly.
