NGO Profile :
Informed Voter Project (MumbaiVotes) seeks to usher in a new age of Informed Participation in democracy and public life in Mumbai and the democratic universe beyond, decimating guesswork from public decision making and opinion building amongst citizens in India, incentivising progressive politics through relentless public scrutiny. MumbaiVotes is IVP's comprehensive transparency and accountability related portal designed to help citizens of Mumbai continuously monitor the performance of their Members of Parliament (MPs), Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and Corporators and their deliverance on promises.

Their mission is to create tools and establish platforms to spawn an evolved democracy that enables:

  • Informed Tracking: IVP presents relentless scrutiny of promise versus performance of elected representatives through rigorously researched, objectively analysed and efficiently communicated information.
  • Informed Education: IVP aims to galvanize society with catalytic information related to rights, responsibilities and processes of intervention available to all stakeholders in a democracy.     
  • Informed Engagement: The organisation hopes to bring about a high calibre of information-based engagement between elected representatives and citizens to realize the collective aspirations of society.

Their initiatives are as follows:

  • In 2014, they executed a comprehensive candidate profile for the MLA elections from different constituencies in Mumbai. In 2012, they did the same for the Municipal Council of Greater Mumbai (MCGM).
  • They also did an analysis which represents an assessment of the party’s manifesto where specific steps and solutions were proposed related to areas of legislative responsibility defined under the Union & Concurrent List of the Constitution of India.
  • They also published a MP Promise v/s Performance report card 2015 which is a comprehensive analysis of the performance and deliverance on promises by the six sitting MPs from Mumbai. The report contains a reader-friendly analysis that will answer compelling questions of the citizens of Mumbai.
  • IVP presented daily and comprehensive session summaries related to attendance of MPs during sessions and a consolidated summary of every question asked by them during question hour.
  • In 2012, they established an interactive voice response system (IVR) as part of a candidate profile creation service for all candidates who could call in and record a 3-minute audio response to specific questions.
