MUMBAI: The metropolis saw an overall jump in voter turnout on Thursday, but the jump was far more marked in the city's posher areas than in slum-dominated pockets even though the latter too witnessed an increase in voting percentages.

So the Bandra West assembly segment, part of the Mumbai North-Central seat, saw a rise in turnout from 41.2% in 2009 to 54.1%, and Vile Parle in the same constituency recorded a 57.5% turnout as against 46.2% the last time. The jump in Malabar Hill, part of Mumbai South, was 53.6% in comparison with 43.2% in 2009. In Borivli, part of Mumbai North, the figure went up from 45% to 57.3%.

Though, of the slum areas, Dharavi showed a remarkable spike from 33.3% to 49.7%, other pockets such as Anushakti Nagar and Mankhurd did not witness a dramatic increase compared to affluent pockets such as Worli, Kandivli, Mahim and Mulund. In Anushakti Nagar, the turnout rose from 39.1% to 46.6% and in Mankhurd from 36.2% to 40.8%.

The turnout in the island city was greater (53%) than that in the suburbs (51%).

Political leaders said turnouts were low in nine out of 36 assembly segments in the city because thousands of names were missing from the voters' list.
