The Election Commission (EC) of the country will soon start a campaign to link Voter ID and Aadhar cards in many states. According to the Election Commission, the joining of both cards will help in removing fake voter IDs. It is seen that people keep more than one voter ID card and vote wherever they want. But if Voter ID is linked with Aadhaar, then the identity card made at another address will become invalid. This will make it easier to remove the bogus voter ID card. This will bring transparency to elections and voting. Along with this, it will also be known how many real voters are there in the country.
Recently, a situation of controversy was seen regarding the Voter ID-Aadhaar card link. Several opposition parties, including Congress, approached the Supreme Court seeking a stay on the linking of both the cards. But the Supreme Court directed the opposition parties to file their petition in the Delhi High Court. The government is preparing to link both the cards for a long time. Even in December 2021, the government has passed the Election Law (Amendment Bill) related to it in the Lok Sabha, in which the right to combine both the documents has been given.
The Election Commission will campaign in some states to link these two important documents. Maharashtra is also named in this, where this work will be started in August. Apart from this, many states have decided to start the work of linking voter ID-Aadhaar cards of people through their Election Commission portal. If you want, you can do this work by yourself and for this, there will be no need to go anywhere, rather all the work will be done online. You can do this in three different ways which include NVSP Portal, Phone, and Message.
