Many people have questions regarding linking of Aadhaar Card-Voter ID. Many times it is seen in some social media posts that if the Aadhaar card is not linked to the voter card, then the name will be removed from the voter list. Many times it is heard that it is not at all mandatory to link Aadhaar card with voter card. In this regard, Union Law Minister Kiren Riju said that “linking Aadhaar card with voter card is absolutely optional. If this is not done then there is no possibility of deletion of name from voter list.”
The Election Commission has started a program of taking half the card numbers from voters since last August. But it is not mandatory, the commission is registering numbers from those who want to do it.
