      Sir,
      this is just to rationalize the procedures of voters verification through some fool proof method. Its just a beginning. We are in a long way to go… Else a Bangladesi or a Pakistani will become an Indian National. Even a Srilankan may get access to our system. Help the Government to get the Administration a bit better and modern.

  1. […] If anyone were to ask today ‘can you get your voter ID card in Bangalore in a month?’ the answer is YES. But you need to apply for it online. According to the electoral office, anyone who is eligible can get their Electoral Photo Identity Card (EPIC)  in a month’s time, as against the 9 months it used to take otherwise. Back in 2011, Karnataka was the first state to embrace the online procedure for application and correction of name and age, and for addition and deletion of names from voter list. Bangalore being the capital and the largest city of Karnataka has been one of the primary beneficiaries of the online procedure. Around 12 lakh plus voters in the city have benefited from this move at the time of writing this article. The process of getting your Voter ID card in Bangalore is very simple and you need to log on to http://ceokarnataka.kar.nic.in and follow the steps as available over here: How to Get Voter ID Card Online […]
