National Stock Exchange to Use BlockChain for E-Voting Tests

The National Stock Exchange of India Ltd (NSE) is planning to use the block-chain technology for e-voting for the listed companies.  For this the Elemential Labs platform will be used.

The benefit of the use of block-chain technology will be that it will provide a transparent way to conduct e-voting at a much lower cost. Professionals have been able to develop on Hyperledger blockchain, as well as other elements of blockchain, creating suitable software that can be used. Elemential Labs platform will be connected to the NSE and voting rights will be tokenized.  This will enable transfer and proxy voting easier.   The main challenge will be to ensure that the whole process is auditable and provide ease of conduct.

The NSE has earlier worked with a group of domestic banks to do a Know-Your-Customer (KYC) data trials, which also used the blockchain technology from Elemential Labs.

Speaking about the blockchain-based e-voting pilot, Raunaq Vaisoha, CEO Elemential Lab said, “Blockchain enables a real-time, immutable trail of all activities for the regulator. This brings us a step closer to highly transparent and clear corporate governance, an operating standard that most companies aspire to.”
