Film producer Allu Aravind, brother-in-law of film star Chiranjeevi, submitted a plea for the extension of the July 14 deadline for completion of house-to-house enumeration of eligible voters for enrolment to the Chief Electoral Officer I. V. Subba Rao at Hyderabad on Wednesday.
The film maker said that he had called on the Chief Electoral Officer as an individual citizen. The CEO explained that the deadline was fixed quite some time ago by the Election Commission after considering several factors. However, two more opportunities were available after July 14 for eligible voters to enroll themselves.
They could approach the officials concerned between July 25 and August 9 when objections would be received by the competent authority, tahsildar, for inclusion or deletion of names from the electoral rolls. The draft electoral rolls would be displayed at all tahsildar offices.
The second opportunity would be available from September 1 when 1,200 designated photo lamination (DPL) centers would be opened in the State.
