Aishwarya Rai is 23 Years Old! Actress' Name Features in Chhattisgarh Village's Voters List

Bollywood actress and 1994 Miss World Aishwarya Rai is just 23 years old and belongs to Chhattisgarh's Jashpur district, according to the electoral roll in Ghughri village.
The voters list of Ghughri village, which comes under Pathalgaon Assembly constituency, features Aishwarya's name, and the accompanying photo confirms it is the actress and not just a namesake, Jashpur collector LS Ken told Press Trust of India on Sunday.
According to the voters list, Aishwarya is just 23 years old and lives in house number 376 in the village. Her father is a Dinesh Rai, though it been has found that nobody lives in that area, under both names.
It is understood that the incident has been a prank but the collector has asked Bagicha (Jashpur district) sub-divisional magistrate K P Dewangan to investigate into the matter and submit a report in 15 days.
Unfortunately, even ordinary citizens encounter several errors in the voters list, not just celebrities. The common mistakes in electoral rolls include spelling mistakes in names, wrong entries of names, residential address, gender and date of birth.
Recently, Bangalore-based Creative Centre for Social and Political Studies (COPS) conducted a survey to find out the quality of the electoral list, and found 12.84 percent errors in the voters' list in the 33 Legislative Assembly constituencies in Karnataka. They identified 14 major errors in the voters list, including two or more names with the same photo, duplicate photos, change of photos, names of dead persons and missing names in the list.
Prior to the Delhi assembly elections, Bangalore-based non-profit organisation named Janaagraha carried out a Proper Urban Electoral (PURE) study and found that one in five names in the Delhi list of voters should not have been there. There have been errors in the voters list, such as inclusion of voters names who are dead or have shifted or could not be traced, reported LiveMint.
