    The Chief Election Commissioner of India heads the Election Commission of India, a body constitutionally empowered to conduct free and fair elections to the national and state legislatures and of President and Vice-President. This power of the Election Commission of India is derived from the Article 324 of the Constitution of India. Chief Election Commissioner of India is usually a member of the Indian Civil Service and mostly from the Indian Administrative Service. It is very difficult to remove the authority of the Chief Election Commissioner once appointed by the president, as two-thirds of the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha need to present and vote against him for disorderly conduct or improper actions.

    Despite the recent[] changes in the hierarchy, the system always had powers to impose unambiguous rules and guidelines that applied across the entire nation e.g. as to how the ballots will be cast and counted, what will be regarded as 'unqualified' vote.[] India was among the early countries to use a completely electronic ballot in the parliamentary elections in 2014,[3] which the Election Commission of India implemented across India's large and diverse population with many rural illiterate people.

    While the office has always been an important one in the machinery of the Indian political process, it gained significant public attention during the tenure of T.N. Seshan, from 1990 to 1996. Seshan is widely credited with undertaking a zealous effort to end corruption and manipulation in Indian elections.[4][5][6]

    Suggested reforms[edit]

    In June 2012, Lal Krishna Advani, a veteran Indian politician and former Deputy Prime Minister of India (as well as former Leader of the Opposition in Indian Parliament),[7] suggested that appointment of CEC (as well as the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG)) should be made by a bipartisan collegium consisting of the Prime Minister, the Chief Justice, the Law Minister and the Leaders of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha.[8][9] Subsequently, M Karunanidhi, the head of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) party and five times Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu[10] supported the suggestion. Advani made this demand to remove any impression of bias or lack of transparency and fairness because, according to him, the current system was open to "manipulation and partisanship".[8][9] Similar demand was made by many former CEC's such as B B Tandon, N Gopalaswamy and S Y Quraishi.[11][12]

    Compensation[edit]

    Salary of the Chief Election Commissioner

    Salary

    ₹250,000 (US$3,100) monthly[1][2]

    By the "Election Commission (Condition of Service of Election Commissions And Transaction of Business) Act, 1991", the salary of the chief election commissioner is the same as salary of a Judge of Supreme Court of India.[1] If there are other election commissioners appointed by the President to help the chief election commissioner, they also receive the same salary.

    Rajiv Kumar 15 May 2022 Incumbent

    From the formation of the Election commission in 1950 till 1989, the Election Commission was a single-member body. Two additional commissioners were appointed by the President of India on 16 October 1989 but they had a very short tenure ending 1 January 1990.

    The Election Commissioner Amendment Act, 1989 made the Commission a multi-member body. The concept of a 3-member Commission has been in operation since then, with the decisions being made by a majority vote.

    The current Chief Election Commissioner, Rajiv Kumar is is the senior-most member of the Election Commission, he has been serving in the ECI as Election Commissioner since September 1, 2020. He is the 25th Chief Election Commissioner of the country.

    Retired IAS Arun Goel was appointed as the Election Commissioner in the Election by President Droupadi Murmu. It will be in effect from the date Goel assumes office.

    In 1985, Goel was a Punjab cadre officer, the retired IAS joined Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar and Election Commissioner Anup Chandra Pandey in the poll panel. Before this the newly made CEC Mr. Goel was the heavy industries secretary and has also served in the Union Culture ministry.

    Though he was supposed to retire on December 31, 2022, his voluntary retirement came into effect on November 18.This year, The Former Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra also retired, passing the role and charge to Rajiv Kumar.

    The poll panel has always been a two-member body due to its tedious task to deal with several crucial issues including the demands for disqualification of Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren. The poll panel would be in charge of handling the election schedule for Nagaland, Meghalaya, Tripura and Karnataka in the coming months.
