‘Govt examining linking Aadhaar to voter ID card’

NEW DELHI: The government is “examining” a proposal from the Election Commission to link Aadhaar with voter ID cards “to ensure error free electoral rolls”, law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told Parliament in a written response.

“In order to ensure preparation of error free electoral rolls and to prevent duplication of entries, a proposal to amend the Representation of the People Act, to enable de-duplication of electoral data using Aadhaar system has been received from the Election Commission,” the minister said, adding that the matter was under examination.
