    The Election Commission of India (ECI) is planning to clean up the voters lists and polling booths starting from December 20, 2023. In response, the Congress party has requested the ECI to implement the Supreme Court’s order regarding linking Voter ID with Aadhar card.

    The Pradesh Congress Committee’s Election Commission Coordination Committee chairman, G Niranjan, wrote a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC), Rajiv Kumar, reminding him of the ECI’s commitment to the Supreme Court. Niranjan mentioned that the ECI has not yet provided any clarification to the Supreme Court regarding changes in the registration forms 6 and 6B.

    Niranjan had previously filed a Writ Petition seeking clarification on the requirement of Aadhar card details in Form 6 and 6B. On September 22, the Supreme Court made an order in response to the counsel’s arguments. The order stated that the submission of Aadhar numbers is not mandatory under Rule 26-B of the registration of electors (Amendments) rules 2022. The ECI is considering issuing clarificatory changes in the forms for this purpose. As a result, the Writ Petition was disposed of.
