If your name is on the voter's list, just walk to the NMMC office

If your name has appeared in voters' list, but don't have a voter ID, you can get it within two hours by visiting Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) ward offices in Vashi, Belapur or Airoli, depending on the constituency you belong to.
"People who don't have a voter ID, but has registered their name in voters' list, will be given voter ID in just two hours. The person has to come personally and his photo will be clicked in the office and processed for the ID," stated an official from the Office of Election Commission in Belapur.
Navi Mumbai has two assembly constituencies- Airoli and Belapur. People residing in Belapur constituency's Sanpada, Vashi and Turbhe nodes can visit Vashi Ward Office for the voter ID, while residents from Juinagar, Nerul, Seawoods and Belapur can go Belapur ward office. Residents from across the Airoli assembly constituency can visit Airoli ward office for the voter ID. Those from the areas of Turbhe and Vashi which fall under Airoli constituency have been requested to visit Airoli ward office for the purpose.
"As of now, we have started this provision only at Airoli ward office, but as soon as we receive the machinery required, we will start it in Koparkhairane, Digha and Ghansoli as well. This year, we received around one lakh voter id applications and we have been able to distribute around 96,000 IDs," stated the official.
The officials who are visiting door-to-door for distributing voter IDs are also collecting form no 8 from voters. "We are trying our best to distribute maximum voter IDs as it is also considered one of the main photo identity proofs and can be used various purposes. We have already employed 120 officials for distributing voter IDs," an official from NMMC said.
