Conscious efforts are being made to pin point bogus voters from the list and delete them, so that criminal proceedings can also be thought of to be initiated against them, Joint Chief Electoral Officer Narayan Navti said.
    
The ECI's local office has appealed people to voluntarily delete their names from the list, if they are already registered elsewhere. After the chance to allow them delete name voluntarily, if they don't do it, then they will
have to face the action, he said.
    
The major focus of this drive is in constituencies like Taleigao, St Cruz, Margao, Dabolim and Cortalim, where migrants are in large number.
    
The possibility is that they might be already voter in their native place like Karnataka and have re-registered themselves in Goa, he said.
    
The ECI is in the process of updating its electoral roll which would be used for the forthcoming Parliamentary elections.
