Names of voters with multiple entries deleted

Nearly 90,000 multiple entries of voters and more than 1.2 lakh cases of duplicate images of voters have been identified by the Election Commission during the summary revision of electoral rolls in Delhi, an official said on Sunday.

The discrepancies — 89,156 multiple entries and 1,20,605 image duplication cases — were detected by booth-level officers during a special “IT-enabled application and field verification” process to identify the fake voters. 

“After the receipt of verification reports, appropriate rectification has already been carried out. The Election Commission also allowed suo motu deletion after following due process of notice in cases which were found to be questionable after the field verification,” the official said.

“At present, all such cases are kept in the ‘absent, shifted or dead’ list available on polling stations. All the district election officers have already apprised the political parties about these steps for rectification,” he said.
