On this initiative, Ms. Monica Tata, COO, BTVi, said, “We at BTVi are extremely excited to associate with Mumbai First for #Vote4Mumbai initiative. We have high hopes that this challenge in turn will influence many corporates to vote and bring in a change in the society. Through our channel we urge everyone in Mumbai to go out and vote.”
The initiative #Vote4Mumbai is an inter-corporate/institution and team as well as inter-department challenge to go out and vote, en masse.
Statistics of the last four elections shows that every time elections are held in Mumbai, less than 45 per cent of registered voters have cast their franchise.

Winners will be announced on BTVi as well.
Representatives of the winning institutions/ individuals would get an opportunity to present a white paper to the Government. This initiative is well supported by a digital campaign where an individual can post videos and social messages to provoke others to go out and vote too.
