EC awaits Supreme Court nod to resume linking of Aadhaar with voter cards


On February 27, 2015, the Election Commission issued guidelines for linking EPIC with Aadhaar as part of the National Electoral Rolls Purification and Authentication Programme (NERPAP). It launched the programme on March 3.
One of the major objectives of NERPAP was to check multiple entries in electoral rolls and to make them error-free. For this purpose, Aadhaar number of electors was collected through various modes throughout the country.
SUPREME COURT ORDER ON AADHAAR
But a Supreme Court order dated August 11, 2015 put paid to EC's ambitious plan to link Aadhaar to voters' I-card. While delivering judgment in a writ petition [Justice (retd) KS Puttaswamy and another versus Union of India and others), the apex court ordered stopping of the production of Aadhaar card as a condition for obtaining any benefits.
In the light of this order, EC suspended the linking of Aadhaar with EPIC with immediate effect.
But by then, EC had already collected and linked the Aadhaar cards of about 31 crore voters.
