There is good news for the residents of Noida who still do not have voter identity cards as the registration process will start in a week.
The district administration is launching the voter ID registration drive for the upcoming Assembly elections going to be held next year. The drive will start from June 6 and residents can register themselves at the nearest registration office with the essential documents.
Residents are required to contact their respective sector RWAs or the district election office located in Sector 19 on all working days to get their cards made. The drive aims to speed up the process and to bring awareness among the populace. Residents can also contact office bearers of the Federation of Noida Residents` Welfare Association or their area's respective sub-divisional magistrate for assistance.
"Voter I-card is a vital document and is used in almost all important works. Earlier, it was very difficult to get the voter ID made but now it's easy and we are happy with this new initiative of the authority," said Nisha Gupta, a resident of Sector 27.
Every registration office will be provided a voters' list and officials will be present at each office to help the residents to check if their names are in the list and advise them on other issues.
"Residents can make changes in their personal data by filling form-8. Individuals whose names are not in the voting list will have to fill form-6 and provide proof of residence to register their names so that the election office can make new photo IDs. Form-7 will have to be filled for deletion of names from the current voters' list in case of death or moving to another state," said Deepak Aggarwal, district election officer.
