He said the current projected population of 30,80,488- 1551774 male and 1528714 female, is against the total population of Manipur which stood at 28,55,794, of which 14,38,586 were male and 14,17,208 were female, by the 2011 Census.

According to the final Electoral Roll, the elector-population ratio is 58 percent- male accounting for 56 percent and female accounting for 60 percent, he said.

This means that there is a 2 percent decline in the elector-population ratio as it was 60 percent in 2014, he continued.

Nabakishore elaborated that the decline has been caused by a sharp increase in the population of Senapati district as recorded in the latest census report.

CEO further said that the copy of the released electoral roll can be obtained from Census EROs at SDO offices for the valley district and for Hills district from the concerned DC offices.

The formats of the electoral roll can also be availed from CEO`s official web site www.ceomanipur.nic.in and the same has also been uploaded in the ECI`s website www.eci.gov.in, he said.
