Tamenglong sub-divisional officer Imosana informed that electors can link with their Aadhaar number using form 6B. 

He said that the chief election officer, Manipur has assured to provide a printing machine to print EPIC cards. Once the printer is available at the district headquarters, one need not go to Imphal just to print the EPIC card, he added.

He mentioned that according to the ECI guidelines EROs, AEROs or any officials cannot force the electors to link with Aadhar numbers. It should be done voluntarily by the electors, he added.

Although it is voluntary, it is still mandatory to link Aadhaar with voter cards to remove bogus registration and reduce multiple registrations as well. 

He informed that a training will be conducted for all booth level officers within the two assemblies including 53 Tamenglong assembly and 52 Tamei assembly constituencies.
