30th March 2009, Mysore, Karnataka, India: 15ml capacity phials that contain 10ml of indelible ink move along the conveyor belt after filling, sealing, capping and labeling. .These indelible ink will be used for the upcoming 2009 India Lok Sabha Elections. Each phial, if properly applied, can be used to mark as many as 700 voters. Only one company, Mysore Paints and Varnish, manufactures the secret formula of indelible ink that is used for all Indian elections since the biggest democratic nation in the world started using ink to mark the fingers of its voters in 1962.
