For setting-up the new industries Bokaro Steel Plant (BSL) management will provide 1000 acres of land for the construction of the Industrial Production Node (IMN). In this sequence, a five-member team of the Central and State Governments inspected the vacant places located near Bhatua, Dhandwara, Garga Bridge.

Election Laws (Amendment) Bill

To Link Adhaar with the Electoral roll, The Election Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2021, will be introduced in Lok Sabha.

Highlights:

  • When the Election Laws (Amendment) Bill 2021 is approved, electoral registration officers will ask for the Aadhaar number of persons who want to register as voters.
  • To verify your identification, they will want your Aadhaar number. The bill also proposes allowing electoral registration officers to request Aadhaar numbers from people already on the electoral record.
  • This will be done to verify the entries in the electoral roll and to identify the registration of the same person’s name in the electoral roll of more than one constituency or the registration of the same name in the same constituency more than once.
  • The bill will amend several provisions of the Representation of the People Act, 1950 and 1951.
  • The 1950 Act will be changed to enable the linkage of electoral roll data with the Aadhaar ecosystem. This modification will mitigate the threat of multiple enrolments of the same person in different areas.
