As you all might know BBMP elections are going to be held in another month . I request all of you who are intrested in particapting , contesting elections , so that we can go ahead and file nominations .
What is the cost of contesting ?
For LS – Rs 10k .. for RS – RS 5k and for BBMP – Rs 3000 . This is the deposit you will have to keep . If you loose deposit wont be returned .
What only RS 3000 ??
Yes , this does not include your campaigning cost . Generally a decent campaign can be fought with Rs 10k .. in a ward . With educated population in Bangalore , it doesnt cost much for campaigning if you choose right wards .
