The proposed bill of linking the Voter ID with the Aadhaar on a voluntary basis is introduced in Lok Sabha today. The Union Cabinet is expected to clear the bill which is one of the longest pending demands made by the Election Commission of India. This is the suggestion made by the Election Commission after there are multiple entries in the electoral rolls to prevent the multiple entries. The Election Commission has embarked on the ambitious project. The proposed bill will also allow the youth to enroll as voters in the future through four different dates in a year. The Election Commission also told the government of India saying that the cut off date is January 1st.
The Electoral law will be made gender-neutral for the service voters as per the new law. The panel asked the Union Law Ministry to replace wife with spouse in the provision. Former Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told the Lok Sabha last year about the proposal. Here is the process of linking Aadhaar with the Voter ID:
