Aditi Singh July 16 2019

The Delhi High Court today directed the Election Commission of India to consider a representation seeking implementation of an "Aadhaar-based Election Voting System".

The direction was passed by a Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar in a petition filed by Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay.

In the alternative, Upadhyay had sought a direction to the Election Commission to link the voter identity card of citizens with their Aadhaar.
