Ludhiana:  In order to stop the duplication of votes, the Election Commission of India has asked for linking of elector’s photo identity card (EPIC) with Aadhaar card.

ECI will hold special camps on June 14 to update details like the Aadhaar card number, mobile number and email addresses of the voters. The officials will be stationed at the camps from 10 am to 5 pm.

Additional deputy commissioner (development)-cum additional district electoral officer, Supreet Singh Gulati said that the linking of Aadhaar card with EPIC would check the duplication of votes. He added that the ECI had started the National Electoral Rolls Purification Authentication Programme.

He said, "If any person is having more than one vote in any area of the district, the voter can get it deleted by filling form no. 7."
For making a correction in the electoral rolls, a voter has to fill form no. 8. If one wants to transfer his vote to another address form no. 8 A could be filled.

The commissioner said that for getting EPIC linked with Aadhaar, voters can call toll-free number 1950 and provide EPIC and Aadhaar card numbers.  If the voter wants to submit his Aadhaar card by SMS, then he would have to type, ECILINK <SPACE> EPICNUMBER <SPACE> AADHAAR NUMBER and send it to 51969. Voters can also log on to ECI website, www.eci.nic.in or at http://nvsp.in/qy.

Gulati said that all voters in the district visit the polling booths on June 14 to avail the facility.
