Mandatory entrance exam for candidate to contest any election in India

This petition had 17 supporters

Today in India anybody can contest any election (Municipal, Legislative or General) without any qualification.

According to one of the online survey, more than 60% people think that minimum educational qualification criteria should set for politicians. But there are examples in past, where educated politicians did not give good governance and less educated politicians provided good governance. And plus now a days education degree can forged easily. 

So in my opinion only education qualification should not be criteria for contesting election, there should be more to assess ability of candidate. And good governance is widely depends on knowledge or/and experience of candidate about governance and other factors( IQ, GK ....).

So what can done to assess candidate governance knowledge, IQ,GK ?
Why not entrance exam for candidate who want to contest election and become politician? This is like, when you want to pursue engineering or medical or management study then you have to give entrance exam like CET / CAT so why not same applied for entry into politics?

This require legislative amendments to the electoral law and government of india need to take action to bring this change.

So here is petition to Prime Minister of India, PMO India, Election Commission of India , Supreme Court of India

Election Commission of India should set mandatory entrance exam for candidate to contest any election in India which will based on IQ,GK,Governance Basics? so people can vote only eligible and knowledgeable candidate and finally get good governance.
