Link Aadhaar with EPIC: The Election Commission of India (ECI) has initiated a drive to connect Aadhaar cards with voter identity cards, also known as the Election Photo Identity Card (EPIC). This move aims to ensure that each voter is registered only once in a constituency, enhancing the accuracy and integrity of the electoral process. While linking Aadhaar with EPIC is not mandatory, the deadline for this linkage has been extended to March 31, 2024.
