Over 1.4 crore people in Telangana voluntarily linked Aadhaar number to voter ID

Over 1.4 crore voters in Telangana have voluntarily linked their Aadhaar numbers to their electoral photo identity cards.

There are approximately 2.95 crore voters in the state. 47 percent of them completed the linking process.

According to Telangana Chief Electoral Officer Vikas Raj, Aadhaar seeding applications were submitted either online or to booth-level officers.

Bogus voter id cards

In Hyderabad, 2,68,542 bogus voters were recently removed from the electoral rolls. It was completed in accordance with standard operating procedure (SOP).

A total of 10, 25, 987 Photo Similar Entries (PSEs) were deleted across the state’s 119 assembly constituencies.

Hyderabad had the greatest proportion of PSEs. Following that, the second-highest PSEs were discovered in Medchal Malkajgiri. Medak had the lowest proportion of PSEs.

The removal of bogus and duplicated voters is an ongoing process. The Election Commission regularly removes voters from the rolls, particularly in urban areas as people who live in rented houses move from one neighborhood to another.

Update Aadhaar cards issued over 10 years ago

UIDAI is urging Aadhaar holders who were issued the unique ID more than ten years ago but have not updated their details since then to update their identification and residence proof documents.

UIDAI, the government agency that issues Aadhaar numbers, said in a statement that the update can be done both online and at Aadhaar centers.

It stated that those who were issued the unique identification number more than ten years ago and have not updated their documents since the issue are being “requested” to do so.

However, the UIDAI did not specify whether this update is required.

“Any person who had got their Aadhaar made 10 years back and not updated the information in any of the subsequent years are being requested to do document updation,” it said.
