Maharashtra state election Commission on Monday restored the registration of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) after revoking it a month ago on account of non-submission of the mandatory income tax and fund details despite reminders.
The Commission, which conducts local body polls, also restored the registration of five other parties, which were de-registered along with several other local outfits last month for their failure to provide details of income tax returns and audited accounts.
The move is a relief for the Asaduddin Owaisi-led party which was looking forward to Mumbai’s 2017 civic elections after winning two assembly seats in 2014.
The party has been re-registered after completing necessary formalities, a SEC official told PTI. The commission had barred the Hyderabad-based AIMIM and 190 other parties from contesting the civic polls in the state on July12.
Only AIMIM has addressed the deficiency and got its registration back so far.
