Election Commission concedes Government request on electoral rolls revision

Deadline extended

Hyderabad, August 16, 2008

The request of the State Government to give some more time for receiving claims and objections from the people on the revision of electoral rolls in the State, the Election Commission has agreed to extend the deadline.

Speaking to media, the Chief Electoral Officer, IV Subba Rao said that the extension was sought following disruption of work due to heavy rain and floods in some parts of the State recently. Individuals and political parties could now file their petitions on missing names in the electoral rolls, errors in names, mismatches of photographs and voters' names and other lapses.

Subba Rao, however, dismissed the rumors that the authorities were deleting names of voters as more number of them had been enrolled on the basis of 2001 census and asserted that there was no ceiling on the number of voters. He added that they are exploring a new software that would enable error free entry of names in Telugu.
