Age declaration for Voter ID card is required when an applicant meet all the following criteria.

  • Applicant is applying for fresh registration for the first time and
  • Applicant is above 21 years of age on the qualifying date of the year, i.e. 1 st January, of the year with reference to which electoral roll is being revised /or has been revised 
  • Applicant's name is not included in the electoral roll anywhere in India

In this case, a declaration has to be given by the applicant in the format as per annexure III , otherwise his application is liable to be rejected.

Documentary proof of age will be required only in those cases, where age of the applicant is between 18 and 21 years. In all other cases declaration of his age by the applicant will be taken as proof of age.
