It is very difficult to recreate a water ID card after it is lost or damaged. Now the Election Commission has rectified this problem. Water ID can be downloaded from today. Until January 31, only those voters who have applied in November-December last year will be able to take their water ID in digital format. This facility will be available to all voters from February 1.
The Election Commission has launched the E-EPIC scheme on National Waters Day. EPIC stands for Electoral Photo Identity Card. This will allow you to download your Water ID to your mobile. An print of it can also be taken. Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad inaugurated it on Monday. Meanwhile, five new voters were given e-water cards.
▪️The benefits of digital E PIC cards
The E-EPIC will be different from the plastic water card issued to new voters. It can also be uploaded to Digilocker.
KYC must be done before downloading E-EPIC. After getting this facility, Water will not need to create a new card frequently when the address changes. A single e-epic will suffice for this. It can be downloaded anew with the address changed in the QR code.
Voters who have lost or damaged their Water ID card will be able to download the duplicate card for free. At present you have to pay 25 rupees for this.
The move will move forward with the One Nation-One Election Card scheme.
