Staff Reporter

Nagercoil: Special gram sabha meeting was organised on Saturday in all 99 village panchayats and 66 special grade village panchayats, in which the special summary revision of electoral rolls was read out.

According to sources, the final electoral rolls were published on September 19, 2005. Cent percent verification was taken up to update or do correction in the rolls.

This exercise involved inclusion of missing names, deletion of surplus names such as those shifted or dead, multiple entries etc. For non-bailable warrant cases, fuzzy logic etc., checklists were compared to ensure error-free rolls.

After updating, the draft rolls of all seven Assembly constituencies in the district were published on January 27 in all designated locations such as taluk offices, revenue divisional offices, municipal offices, local bodies, including post offices.

The number of applications received in form 6, 7, 8 and 8 A would be maintained date-wise for each Assembly constituency. The officials posted at the designated centres were instructed to have a preliminary check in every form, before issuing an acknowledgement, said the Collector, Sunil Paliwal.
