Status: In September 2023, the government set up a committee led by former president Ram Nath Kovind to assess, among other things, the idea of using a single electoral roll across elections. The committee has submitted its report, recommending constitutional amendments to prepare a single electoral roll and single Elector’s Photo Identity Card (EPIC) in the elections for the Lok Sabha, State Assemblies, Urban local bodies and Panchayats. The government however is still to act on the recommendation. i
