    What will happen if Aadhaar is added to the voter list? Official sources said

    New Delhi. Amid opposition’s criticism of the bill to add voter lists to Aadhaar, government sources said on Tuesday that the move would result in the same person’s name appearing on voter lists in different places. Will solve ‘big problems’ and help to ‘clean up’. ‘The list goes on and on. A day earlier, the Lok Sabha passed the Electoral Law (Amendment) Bill, 2021 after a brief discussion. Opposition groups called for the bill to be sent to a parliamentary standing committee.

    According to official sources, the bill includes various election-related reforms, which have been under discussion for some time.

    Sources said that this could be due to frequent change of residence by voters and enrollment in new places without deleting previous nominations. Thus, the names of voters who have more than one place in the voter list or more than once in the same voter list can be omitted. Sources said that once linked to Aadhaar, the voter list data system will alert you about the previous registration as soon as you apply for a new registration. He said that it would go a long way in clearing the voter list and facilitate voter registration in the ‘residential’ areas.
