From August 1, link voter ID to Aadhaar: EC

The election commission of India will start a special campaign in  Maharashtra from August 1 to encourage the citizens to link their voter ID cards with Aadhaar card.

Chief Electoral Officer Shrikant Deshpande said that the election commission of India has brought in certain additions to ensure that the electoral roll doesn't have any duplicate entries. In case Aadhaar card is not available, anyone of the 11 documents like job card, passport, Kisan passbook, driving licence too will be accepted.

However, a voter will not be de-listed if his name is not linked of Aadhaar card. “There are two ways to link these cards with voter ID--online and offline. Voters ar eencouraged to link these two cards to ensure duplicate enteries can be eliminated,” said Deshpande.
