Voter ID card is an identity proof, given to all the citizens of the country who is above 18 by the Election Commission of India. However, it is often noticed that some people use multiple ID cards in the name of a single person. In order to weed out these duplicate ID cards, Government has decided to link Voter ID cards (Also Known as EPIC – Electoral Picture Identity Card) with Aadhaar Cards.
Aadhaar Card is a 12 digit unique identification number issued to the citizens of the country, which will be valid throughout the individual’s lifetime. Aadhaar card requires demographic details and biometric details of an individual. Hence, an individual can own only one Aadhaar Card.
Hence, Government has taken the step to link Voter ID card with Aadhaar Number, which will help to eradicate the duplicity of the document.
