It was informed that form 6 is exclusively for registration of new electors, Form 6A for inclusion of name in electoral roll by an overseas elector, Form 6B for capturing adhaar number by existing electors while Form-7 for objection to proposed inclusion/deletion of name in existing electoral roll with a slight modification that a provision of attaching death certificate has been incorporated. Similarly, Form 8 is for correction in electoral roll, shifting of residence (within or outside constituency), replacement of EPIC and marking of a person with disability.

It is pertinent to mention here that the citizens can verify and make changes/corrections in their electoral details by logging onto the National Voters’ Service Portal. Besides, the registered voters should also check their enrolment status.
