An Apex Court bench headed by Justice RM Lodha, taking on record a statement by the Election Commission, said a statutory bar that a service personnel should be resident of peace areas for three years along with his family will not come in his way to get registered as a voter for the forthcoming election.

However, he should be posted at the peace station from January 1, 2014 and continue to be so to qualify to be registered as a voter.

However, this will not impact the voters list in 225 Lok Sabha constituencies where the election process has commenced.
