State Chief Election Officer Kiran Gitye said that Representation of the People Act, 1950 and 1951 have been amended by the Ministry of Law and Justice of the Government of India on the recommendation of the Election Commission of India.
Based on this act, information will be collected only to provide better service to voters by preparing a transparent voter list.
The process of linking Aadhaar with the voter ID cards of voters in all assembly constituencies of the state will begin from August 1, 2022.
The BLOs of the concerned areas will visit door-to-door and collect Aadhaar information through Form 6-B from August 1, 2022.
The information was shared in a press conference at the Secretariat on Saturday July 30
Kiran Gitye also said that the Aadhaar information of the elector will be kept completely confidential, as per the instructions of the Election Commission.
If an enrolled voter is unable to provide Aadhaar data due to lack of Aadhaar card, his or her name will not be removed from the voter list.
Similarly, the application will not be rejected if an applicant is unable to provide Aadhaar information for inclusion of new name.
