Does voting ink cause itching?
Does voting ink cause itching? I am worried about this. I learnt that a 30-year-old male presented to the emergency with complaints of pain, swelling, burning sensation and black staining of fingertips of both hands. Please elaborate on this.
@ayra As questions are raised about the efficacy of the ‘indelible ink’, more popularly known as voter’s ink, used in the general elections, the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research which developed the ink has come out in defense of its product. “We developed the ink in 1960s and transferred it to Mysore Paints and Varnish Limited, which has been the sole supplier ever since. Billions of people have voted in the general elections all these years and every time, the ink was used. There are no grounds for doubt. It has stood the test of time. That is its truest test," said Dr Shekhar Mande, Director General, of India’s premier R&D organization.
