The monopoly enjoyed by the indelible ink, manufactured by the Mysuru-based Mysuru Paints and Varnish Limited (MPVL), may face challenges in future, according to the talks held during the 27th national-level State Election Commissioners Conference, held on Tuesday.

Speaking to media persons, on the sidelines of the conference, chairman of the conference Parasuram said, he does not have authentic information on the lobbies by private companies to push their brand of indelible inks, but anything can happen. “As far as Madhya Pradesh is concerned, the State Election Commission (SEC) has complete confidence on the indelible ink supplied by MPVL. So, there is no question of buying the product from any other company. But, I cannot say anything about the other SECs,” he said. He is the Commissioner of the SEC of Madhya Pradesh.

Earlier, during the inaugural session, Parasuram had displayed the mark of the indelible ink on his finger, having cast his vote in his home state recently, and had announced that he was happy to be in the city, where MPVL manufactures the ink that is an integral part of the election process. “Every citizen of India gets the mark, when one casts his or her vote in an election,” he said. However, managing director of MPVL Chandrasekhar Doddamani declined to comment on any such lobby trying to push its brand of indelible ink.
