New Delhi, Jan 25: The government is mulling to link the Aadhaar number with Voter ID of new applicants and existing voters to check multiple entries in electoral rolls.

The Commission recently proposed that provisions of the Representation of the People Act be amended to allow EC to seek Aadhaar numbers of those applying to be voters and those who are already part of the electoral rolls.
