EC wants legal backing to seek Aadhaar numbers to clean up voters list 18.8.2019
New Delhi: The Election Commission has asked the government to give it statutory backing to collect Aadhaar numbers of new applicants and existing voters to check multiple entries in electoral rolls. In a letter to the Law Ministry, the commission has proposed that provisions of the Representation of the People Act be amended to allow the EC to seek Aadhaar numbers of those applying to be voters and those who are already part of voters list. According to the EC proposal sent earlier this month, the electoral law should be amended to empower electoral registration officer to seek Aadhaar numbers of the existing voters as well as of those applying to the voters'' list. In August 2015, a Supreme Court order on Aadhaar card has put brakes on the Election Commission's project to link Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) (Aadhaar) numbers with voters' electoral data to check multiple entries in electoral rolls.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi grants Rs 500 crore flood relief to Kerala 19.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
After conducting an aerial survey of flood-hit Kerala, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday immediately announced flood relief of Rs 500 crore for the state. Heavy rains have lashed Kerala for nearly nine days and over 380 people have died so far. Over 3.14 lakh people have been moved to relief camps. A new red alert was issued on Saturday for all the 14 districts in Kerala, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said.
