After the Congress had demanded the Election Commission to conduct a probe into duplicate voters, the district collector Siddharth Mahajan on Saturday confirmed a total of 1,05,299 duplicate/fake voters appeared in Jaipur’s electoral rolls and all these have been deleted.
The state election department identified the duplicate names with the help of a software, sources said.
The software once installed starts recognising faces and names which are similar. It identifies 20 such people in a group which was highlighted in the Congress list. After reviewing its status, these were removed from electoral list, souces said.
Official sources confirmed the process of identifying duplicate voters will continue till September 20. The exact figure however, will only be known after the completion of the process.
The duplicate/fake voter figure is 24,197 in Ajmer, 24,053 in Alwar, 32,886 in Banswara, 13,211 in Bara and 128 in Barmer. These names have also been deleted, said sources.
