Mangaluru, Sep 16: Deputy commissioner Sindhu B Rupesh urged people to verify their names in the voters’ list.

Addressing media here on Monday, September 16, Sindhu Rupesh said, "As per the orders of the Election Commission (EC), there will be inspection of voters list and revision of the same, which will be conducted from September 1 to October 15. During the Lok Sabha elections, there were several complaints with regards to error in voter ID such as error in names, address, photo etc. In order to correct these errors, the EC has passed this order to conduct an inspection of the voters’ list.

"BLOs will visit to every house to conduct the inspection of voters’ list. Voters can confirm their names in voters’ list, through voter helpline app and web portal by producing relevant documents. It also has a provision to change photo. One can call helpline number 1950. After the changes are made, the revised voter ID will be issued to the concerned person.

“All the voters can check and verify EPIC number in NVSP portal with their registered mobile number and also verify the details of all family members and link through the registered number on NVSP portal,” she said.

When asked about state committee visit to Pacchanady, she said, "State committee will visit the Pacchanady dump yard on September 19 to access the damage occurred due to garbage slide and report will be submitted.”

Additional DC Roopa was also present.

    Why is voter list among the first task handled by the new DC ? Is someone planning a Citizens List for Karnataka ?

    why should citizens undertake this time-consuming and unproductive exercise of verifying their details every few years on the voter list? Should the concerned agencies not investigate how this data gets corrupted in the Govt's hands and prevent that from happening? Unless one moves out of the area or goes dead, there should be no need for this frequent re-verification.

    Instead of concentrating on such issues which are not useful at present. First and foremost DC should concentrate on the health issues of the public... They should take precautionary measures to control the fevers like dengue... Malaria.. etc. Do regular spraying and fogging areawise continuously... with the time to time awareness among the public... When citizens are healthy whole city is healthy... Awake! Arise!! Employees of health department... Don't give rash response during your visit to areas... I was surprised when one of the lady staffs said on enquiry as to why they don't do regular fogging? Answer is machines are heavy.. So they do fogging just in the compound of dengue affected patient...!!! Grown up grass on the road side.. another issue... what urgency in verifying the voter cards?
