NVSP Voter ID Card and Aadhar Seeding may raise a question that the Aadhar Card would soon oust the voter id card as the most important government identity? Well, for now the Election Commission of India has Suspended Aadhar Seeding on NVSP or any other portal – So the process for Voter Registration remains as it was before.

Therefore, right now, all the Citizens must get their Aadhar Card Voter ID Link completed correctly. Hence, in this article, we provide you with the correct steps of the correct way of Aadhar Card Voter ID Seeding.

Aadhar Card Voter ID Link – What it is?
As we mentioned above, Aadhar and Voter ID need to co-exist in harmony, to create an aggregate identity card that has a minimum number of limitations (a feat that is very difficult for the stand-alone ID cards to achieve). Nevertheless, the Aadhar Voter ID Link is also necessary for the removal of a staggering number of fake and defunct Voter ID Cards that have surfaced over the years in the Indian Democracy, continually distorting the free and fair Election process.
Hence, the need for Aadhar Card Voter ID seeding is undeniably important and should top every Citizen’s priority list. The process itself is simple enough such that it does not take up a major chunk of your time.
