While a total of 12, 97, 954 new voters have been added to the list, a total of 7,16,000 voters have been excluded.

When we published a draft report on October 27, our gender ratio was 963 (963 female voters per 1000 male voters). Now, that has become 972,” he said. 

“I would like to inform it that the female ratio is at the highest level in the last five years,” he added.
