Asaduddin Owaisi-led All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), that has been trying to expand its base in the state since 2014, Maharashtra Election Commission yesterday restored its registration.
Maharashtra Election Commission has revoked the cancellation of recognition of AIMIM after the party paid Rs 1 lakh as penalty and submitted the income tax audit report for years through 2010 and 2015.
Election Commission secretary NJ Wagle issued the notice and communicated the same to party headquarters in Hyderabad.
AIMIM, along with 190 other political parties, was de-registered by the state election commission, for not filing proof of tax returns and audit accounts. AIMIM has been trying to expand its base in Maharashtra and contest the Municipal Corporation election in Mumbai. The party emerged successful in its first attempt in 2014 state elections when it won two seats in the legislate assembly.
In Aurangabad municipal elections, AIMIM with Kite as its symbol, performed fairly well and stood second.
