Ahead of 2019 general elections, there has been uproar across India about voters being deleted from electoral rolls. An analysis of the events so far points towards a new software that linked voter IDs with Aadhaar and used the details to weed out duplicates. The software's role is important because sources say that the Election Commission of India is currently mulling over making it mandatory to link Aadhaar to voter IDs. In October 2018, the Election Commission had also officially supported a petition filed by a lawyer in the Madras High Court, which asked for the linkage for removal of duplications.
