The panchayat and urban local body elections in Jammu and Kashmir are likely to be held in September-October this year, an official spokesman said here today.

The State Administrative Council (SAC), which met here under the chairmanship of Governor N N Vohra today, reviewed the preparations for the conduct of elections to panchayats and urban local bodies in the state, he said.

The council reviewed all aspects relating to the preparations and conduct of elections like drawing up of schedules for the publication of latest electoral rolls, their updation, and finalisation, publication of final electoral rolls and availability of EVMs and ballot boxes, to enable the conduct of elections in September/October 2018, the spokesman said.

The Governor observed that the holding of such elections across the state will revive the institutions of local

self-governance, resulting in their inclusion in the development process at the grassroots level, he added.
