Revision of rolls from Sept. 13

PONDICHERRY, AUG. 30. In keeping with the Election Commission direction, the Elections Department here has scheduled to launch a special revision of rolls for all the 30 Assembly constituencies in the Union Territory from September 13 to October 12.

This is the first such revision after some five years. Enumerators would be visiting door to door in each constituency and additions or deletions would be done.

A communication from the Department said here on Wednesday that those who attain 18 years as on January 1, 2002 or those who completed 18 years already but had not enrolled themselves were eligible for inclusion in the voter lists. Similarly persons whose names do not figure in the present roll on account of shifting of residence are also eligible for inclusion in the new addresses where they are now residing.

The purpose of the special revision is to use the existing data base of the existing rolls computerised, incorporating the Electors Photo Identity cards number issued to voters in the past. The rolls are being updated with reference to quaifying date.

The enumerators would make available the cards if any issued to the members of the family so that enumeration would be completed quickly. The enumerator would furnish a copy of the Enumeration Card to the available adult member in the family which would contain the names of voters retained, names of new voters if any and names of voters who have shifted.

Voters, who could not be present during the visit of the enumerators can contact the enumerators concerned directly or the Electoral Registration officer (ERO) or Assistant Electoral Registration officer.
