Staff Reporter

It will displayed at 2,076 places in ten constituencies

COIMBATORE: Following the door-to-door verification of the voters' list and deletion of duplicate and bogus names, the final list of voters will be displayed at 2,076 public places in ten constituencies in Coimbatore district on August 31.

Survey carried out

A release said that in accordance with the directives from the Election Commission, Government officials and village administrative officers carried out a thorough survey to determine if those on the existing voters' list were still residing at the addresses given with their names.

If the persons in the list were not residing at the places mentioned, or if there was reason for suspicion, the names were shifted to the `999' list for further verification. Copies of these lists were made available to the ten recognised political parties.

Out of the 1,55,211 names on the `999' list, only 35,395 were found to be genuine after three rounds of surveys. These names would be listed in an annexure to the main voters' list. Besides this, the district administration would remove the names of voters who had died (25,476) since the last general elections.

The number of names to be deleted in each constituency is as follows: Mettupalayam 13,140; Avanashi 4774; Kinathukkadavu 4430; Pollachi 20,591; Valparai 7911; Udumalpet 7312; Dharapuram 12,660; Pongalur 4382; Palladam 11,629; and Tirupur 32,987.
