Since the landmark judgment of the Supreme Court in 2003, ADR along with the National Election Watch, has conducted Election Watches for the 2004 and 2009 Lok Sabha Elections, Rajya Sabha Elections and almost all State Assembly Elections post 2003 in the country.
Election Watch comprises background reports based on Criminal, Financial, Educational and Income Tax details of Candidates and Winners (MPs, MLAs and Ministers) who have contested Elections to State Assemblies, the Parliament and a few local bodies. We have taken a step ahead and included analysis on the increasing assets of our politicians as well as an analysis of Expenses incurred during Elections by candidates, in order to provide a holistic picture. In some states, the Election Watch program has analysed the performance of assemblies based on selected parameters.
