Govt to give EC legal power to link Aadhaar & Voter ID

Feb 19, 2020 11:18 IST

The government has moved to amend the Aadhaar Act to legally empower the Election Commission to link the unique identification number with the electoral roll, The Times of India has reported. The move would remove bogus and duplicate entries and pave the way for giving “remote” voting rights to migrant voters. The report added that the law ministry is working on a note to be put up before the Union Cabinet. The move will help migrants by changing the current practice where they can vote only if they are in the constituency where they are registered as voters.
