H S brahma, CEC, Aadhar card, voter id card

H S Brahma said once the Aadhar number is mentioned in the electoral rolls then individual voters can also change their address online because Aadhar will be the basic identity.

India is set to become the first country in the world to have biometric data and no duplicacy in the voters’ list after linking of Aadhar card with voter identity card, Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) H S Brahma said on Saturday.

“When we are able to seed the Aadhar figure (number) on EPIC card that will ensure that there is not a single duplicate number. We will do it definitely by 2015 and then India will be the only country in the world where there will be complete biometric of voters. There will be not a single fraud or duplicate voters,” Brahma said at a conference on electoral reforms here.

Asked about Supreme Court’s order which had said that Aadhar is not a prerequisite for availing public services, he said everyday lakhs of voters are seeding their names with Aadhar card on their own.

“Everyday our voters are themselves seeding (their names for Aadhar cards). More than lakhs daily. We do not want to make it compulsory but our voters themselves want it. It is a good gesture,” the CEC said.

He appealed to all citizens of the country to avoid duplicate names in the voter list saying it is a crime punishable for upto one year.

Brahma said once the Aadhar number is mentioned in the electoral rolls then individual voters can also change their address online because Aadhar will be the basic identity.

It will remove all allegations of duplicacy in the voters list and harassment to voters in changing their address, he said adding that so far 85 crore Indians have got their Aadhar numbers.

“We are very hopeful that the remaining 25-30 crore people’s Aadhar cards would be done by August this year,” he said adding that in West Bengal the Aadhar figure is around 55 per cent so far.

On electoral reforms, he said political reforms should also be talked about in the same spirit.

He said if the government accepts the report of the Law Commission then 95 per cent of problems on issues of electoral reforms will be resolved.

Asked about expenditure ceiling for political party candidates, he said they need to be vigilant as money and muscle power doesn’t lead to level playing field.

“Filing of nominations should also be online so that people can know the plus and minus of the candidates,” Brahma added.

    I, my wife and my son are registering for voter ID cards since the past 6 years and in spite of several reminders we never got the voter ID cards. Let the EC first make sure that there is no eligible voter who is unable to get a voter card. Let the question of duplicacy come later.

        Oh, yeah! I don't know why Indian ministers/bureaucrats seem to feed off of their rhetoric, but really Mr. Brahma? After demonstrated cases of Aadhaar cards being issued in the names of (complete with a picture of our mace-wielding hero), and Mahatma hi. Absolve me from criminal cases against me, and I will get you an Aadhaar card in the name of H. S. Brahma.

          The CEC is wrong in canving for aadhar. CEC should be called to the Supreme Court and asked to explain his stand. He is again incorrect when he says that people are voluntarily enrolling for aadhar. Just see the Kerala CEO's portal. It makes Aadhar mandatory. They are committing contempt of court. Government is pressurising people to supply data to foreign linked private operators. Why the Gov is bent upon continuing Aadhar which has foreign linked partition when reports show that many companies involved are having connections with overseas intelligence ? 2. Why not the gov have the UID created through post offices and officials who have taken oath of office and secrecy ?It is a pity that the Government is going ahead with Aadhar even after the Supreme Court's interim order. It is shameful that we are made to provide our data to the registrars having foreign connections. We feel ashamed. We feel let down. Please come clear on the issue rather than make every one enrol by using dubious means.

              First avoid duplicate Aadhar card. When we were in Bangalore we got Aadhar Card, my family moved to chennai. My wife applied for Aadhar Card in chennai, and she got it. How is that the system did not track the duplicate card. This shows poor governance.

                Supreme Court will not permit it! Right to vote wont be permitted to be linked to Adhar card.

                  Aadhar card is for ushering TECHNOCRACY,with COMPLETE Surveillance for One Wolrd Totalitarian Government.UIDAI is actually "Universal ID",cunningly coined by the Globalists.One's PRODUCTIVITY will also be measured and constantly watched. Already the NDA is a servant pf te G 2p0,a from of One World Totalitarian Government,by THE CONQUEST OF NATIONS WITHOUT WAR. INDIA SHOULD GET OUT OF G 20 AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE ELSE INDIANS WILL HAVE A VERU DARK FUTURE AND WILL HAVE TO LIVE UNDER OPPRESSION,BY THE TPTB.. As regards fraud,EVMs are fraudulent as the EC is the ONLY one which knows to whom a person has voted.EVMs have to be replaced by paper ba,llots.Till then all these Oubklicity will be mala fide. The vested interests are coming out with one idea after another after vigorous opposition to the Aadhar cards by the knowledgeable and the recent SC ruling. these subtel manaouvres are anti-Indian,in various guises and under various pretexts. Please google flor:- 1.Aadhar for One World totalitarian Government 2.technocrcy for One World totalitarian Government

                    All political parties and the corruption must be responsible for the mess, since every political party wants, only votes by hook or crook to rule on us and that is why all these political parties are resorting unanimously; the ways and means to remain out of the ambit of the RTI Act, so that their misdeeds will remain undisclosed forever and that is why these parties also not bringing an effective lokpal as well as not framing stringent anti-corruption laws. One can see; how the BJP has changed it's colour after uming the power by falsely uring the gullible indians of giving them "ACCHE DEEN".
