He said the first step will be to verify the existing registered voters in each branch to establish their current status.
"They have to ascertain if all the voters are currently residing in their localities or have moved out, and if so, to locate them and verify their (the voters') status," he added in a statement.
He said the immediate priority is to ensure that the party's 630,000 members are registered as voters.
Samy Vellu said each branch will be required to maintain a data bank complete with the contact numbers of the voters and their current addresses.
The move is necessary as recent by-elections have revealed that many voters had shifted from their localities but there was no proper record to indicate them.
The next step, he added, is to register new voters with the help of the Election Commission (EC).
MIC branches could seek the assistance of the EC's Mobile Registration Unit or through the Internet.
Identify young voters
The MIC president said steps are underway to identify voters among the younger generation, especially those who have just reached the age of 21 years.
"Towards this, the Youth, Puteri and Putera wings in each branch will have to be mobilised to reach out to the younger generation," he added.
Samy Vellu said MIC divisional leaders will monitor the dual (verification and registration) process and report back to their respective state party chairs who will then submit a complete list to the MIC headquarters.
This exercise will be conducted every six months.
He said MIC needs to have the numbers to ensure Indian votes are delivered to the Barisan Nasional in the next general election.
"This exercise will be taken into account when we evaluate the performance of branches under the Key Performance Indicators and star-rating processes," he added.
