In order to avoid the controversy surrounding deletion of voters from electoral rolls — as was witnessed during the local body polls last year — the Election Commission of India (EC) will be providing all political parties soft copies of the list of voters whose names might get deleted during the ongoing electoral roll revision process currently under way in Gujarat.
In preparation for the 2017 Assembly polls in Gujarat, the EC has been revising the electoral rolls in the state. “During the two special campaign dates that were undertaken by the officials on September 18 and 25, a total of 68,062 applications (Form 7) requesting deletion of names from electoral rolls have already been received. Most of them are voters who have either passed away or have moved to some other state,” said A H Manek, additional chief electoral officer of Gujarat.
“We will be providing all political parties a soft copy of the list of voters’ names that get deleted at regular intervals. These soft copies that will be provided by the electoral registration officers will not only intimate the stakeholders, but will also provide greater transparency,” Manek added.
