Nod for Aadhaar Card linking with Voter ID: All you need to know
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.
Sources said the ministry would soon move the Union Cabinet to bring a bill to amend the electoral law. "Action is being taken," a senior ministry functionary told PTI.
According to the EC proposal sent in August last year, the electoral law should be amended to empower electoral registration officers to seek Aadhaar number of existing voters as well as of those applying to enrol themselves in the voters' list.
In August 2015, a Supreme Court order on Aadhaar put brakes on Election Commission's project to link UIDAI (Aadhaar) number with voters' electoral data to check multiple entries in electoral rolls.
