“Panchayat elections are always a huge election. Given the number of candidates and the number of panchayats we receive in each election, we felt it best to automate the vote-counting verification process. We are happy to associate with Staqu’s AI -driven JARVIS technology which can assist in the process and ensure that it is error-free and the elections proceed in a fair manner. We look forward to ending the elections on a safe and successful note without any miscalculations,” added the State election commissioner Shree Deepak Prasad (Rt IAS) for the Bihar State Election Commission.

During the Bihar Panchayat Elections, JARVIS will validate each candidate’s vote in an EVM machine, compare it to the results on the election commission’s website, and alert if there is a discrepancy, which was previously done manually, and avoid any discrepancies or errors by using the camera at the counting booth. This is the first time AI has been used to tally votes in an election in the country.

Staqu presently collaborates with more than 50 organisations, including the NITI Aayog, the Indian Army, eight police forces in India and the Middle East, and commercial companies including Tata Projects, Larsen & Toubro, Microsoft, Embassy Group, Rebel Foods, and others.
