Ques: The election commission of India recently launched a program for error free and authenticated electoral roll?
Ans: National Electoral Roll Purification and Authentication Program (NERPAP).
The prime objective of NERPAP is to bring a totally error free and authenticated electoral roll.
During the program, EPIC data of electors will be linked with Aadhar data of UIDAI for the purpose of authentication. NERPAP will focus on improving image quality of electors along with sorting issues like corrections of errors etc.
Electors have been provided the facility to feed their respective Aadhar number through sms, email, mobile application and National Voters Service Portal (NVSP) using web services through election commission website.
Electors can also feed Aadhar number by making a call at 1950 to state call centres or by submitting the details of Aadhar number and EPIC number in a hard copy of duly filled up Form along with photocopy of both the documents, namely EPIC and Aadhar card.
