By PRANJAL BHUYAN

GUWAHATI, March 30 - The Kamrup Metro Election District will set up eight all-women polling stations across the four Legislative Assembly Constituencies (LACs) located in the city.

Officials said that there will be two such polling stations in each of the four constituencies. In these polling stations, all election officials, including presiding officers, polling officers, micro observers and other staff as well as security personnel, will be women.

The two all-women polling stations proposed in the Jalukbari constituency are PS No. 108 IWT Slipway Project Office Guest House (Right Wing) and PS No. 109 IWT Slipway Project Office Guest House (Left Wing).

In Dispur constituency, two polling stations � No. 119 Khanapara Kendriya Vidyalaya (Right Wing) and No. 120 Khanapara Kendriya Vidyalaya (Left Wing) � are proposed as all-women polling stations.

PS No. 139 TC Girls Higher Secondary School (Right Wing) and PS No. 140 TC Girls Higher Secondary School (Left Wing) are the two all-women polling stations proposed in the Guwahati East constituency.

In the Guwahati West LAC, the two all women polling stations will be PS No. 251 Kali Ram Barua Girls� High School (Right Wing) and PS No. 252 Kali Ram Barua Girls� High School (Left Wing).

Officials added that eight other polling stations in the city have been selected as model polling stations, two each in the four LACs.

They are PS No. 70 Sila Mahekhaiti LP School and No. 74 Abhoypur LP School (Right Wing) under Jalukbari constituency, No. 119 Khanapara Kendriya Vidyalaya (Right Wing) and No. 158 Guwahati Academy Junior College (Left Wing) under Dispur constituency, No. 114 Rabindra Bhawan (Middle Wing) and No. 143 �O/O The Chief Engineer PWD� (Right Wing) in Guwahati East constituency, and No. 87 Chakradew LP School (Right Wing) and No. 99 Mainakhurung LP School (Right Wing) in Guwahati West constituency.

Meanwhile, officials said that 40 polling stations spread across the four LACs of Guwahati have more than 1,350 electors, including 21 in Dispur, five in Guwahati East and 14 in Guwahati West.

�In such polling stations, Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) will not be used due to time constraints as the VVPAT requires some time before the paper trail comes out. So in bigger polling stations, its use is not feasible,� said an official. The four constituencies in the city will go to polls on April 11. A total of 49 candidates are in the fray from the four city-based constituencies.
