Now, download e-EPIC cards from Sewa Kendra at DC complex

Jalandhar, February 18

To achieve the target of issuing 100 per cent e-EPIC cards to newly registered (13,738) voters, the district administration has set up an e-EPIC (elector’s photo identity card) download kiosk at type-1 Sewa Kendra of the District Administrative Complex, Jalandhar.

DC Ghanshyam Thori said all newly registered voters would be provided with the e-EPIC cards. He said a special kiosk has been set up at the Sewa Kendra, where e-EPIC cards would be downloaded in the mobile phones of new voters. He said all new voters would be covered by February 28, adding that other general voters would be able to avail the benefit of this facility from March 1, 2021.

The DC said another scheme ‘Election Hero’ has been launched by the ECI, under which campus ambassadors of various educational institutions have been roped in. He said campus ambassadors getting maximum e-EPIC cards downloaded would be declared as the Election Hero of the month and these Election Heroes would have a chance to interact with Punjab State Icon Sonu Sood or Chief Electoral Officer, Punjab S Karuna Raju through video calling. — TNS
