By Staff Correspondent

Silchar, Nov 2: Covering seven constituencies, Cachar district has a total of 12,70,656 voters including 6,40,860 male voters, 6,29,781 female voters and 15 voters from the third gender as per the district's draft electoral roll which was published on Monday at the office of the Cachar Deputy Commissioner.

According to the district election officer-in-charge Mansur Ahmed Mazumder, in the final enrollment as on March 12, this year, there were 12, 78,881 voters across the seven constituencies in Cachar district. However, among the 12, 70,656 voters enlisted in the draft electoral rolls published making a difference of 8,225 voters.

As many 23,463 were added as per the previous final enrol, as many as 30,690 voters names were deleted. There are 6,923 newly inducted voters while 3,656 are marked as Doubtful voters in the district as per the district election office records.

The district administration has however urged the population in the age group of over 18 years to step up and enrol themselves in the voters list. Those above 18 years of age can log on to the website of the National Voters Service Portal to enrol themselves in the voters list.

Meanwhile, the differences in the quantum of deleted figures from the draft voters list have already sent shudders down the spines of masses especially in the context of the ordeal of establishing claims of one's citizenship.

On the other hand, Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli informed that the deletion of names from the voters list is caused by various factors including double entries which were detected courtesy of updated software, deaths and changes in the residential addresses as well. Terming this as not a factor to be perturbed about, the Deputy Commissioner made it clear that the claims, objections and correction phase will be from November 1 to November 30 during which people can apply by filling up appropriate forms following which necessary measures will be taken. Disposal of claims and objections will be done by December 20 while the final publication of electoral roll will be done on January 5, 2022, the Deputy Commissioner informed.
