The Sub-Collector of Bhubaneswar has called upon the voters of the Capital to take advantage of the electoral roll revision process which is currently underway.
Interestingly, the percentage of electoral photo identity card (EPIC) holders in Bhubaneswar is lower than in other Assembly segments of the State. Bhubaneswar comprises three Assembly segments - Bhubaneswar Central, North and Ekamra.
Sub-Collector Saroj Kumar Samal, who is also the Electoral Registration Officer, issued an appeal on Monday stating that there are also a number of voters who do not possess EPIC and they can take advantage of the revision process immediately. The process will be completed by November 3.
Those who are enrolled in multiple booths have been urged to fill in specific forms and get their names deleted from booths where they do not belong. Those who are yet to get enrolled in the voter list can use Form 6 (Part-IV) to submit their address and booth details. Similarly, those who are enrolled but do not possess the EPIC can fill in Form 8 and attach colour passport size photographs and submit the same at their respective booths before the due date.
Samal has also decided to open three assistance kiosks to provide information relating to these issues from Tuesday. BMC Kalyan Mandap at Unit VIII for Bhubaneswar (Central), Chandrasekharpur Kalyan Mandap for Bhubaneswar (North) and RI Office, Old Town for Bhubaneswar (Ekamra) will remain open from 10 am to 5 pm till November 3.
