Clean electoral rolls plays vital role in free and fair elections from the bedrock of an Indian democracy. An electoral roll is an official list of inhabitants who are eligible to cast their vote in an election in their residential area. An Inhabitant (citizen) can be registered as a voter in a place where they are ordinarily resident. However, the seasonal migration and relentless urbanization can end up being on more than one electoral roll.  A variety of reasons relentless urbanization and inter-and intra-city movements pose a challenge to having an updated and accurate electoral roll in urban areas. Bogus voting is another seriously considerable issue which is duplication owing to their enrolment in electoral rolls in several places made by hyperactive political parties. The use of proposed system for generating dynamically electoral rolls (SGDER) is to identify eligible voters and not to just make the enrolment process simpler; it will also help to avoid the duplication of voter names across constituencies. This system is to exploit for meeting effectively and efficiently the electoral roll registration, update requirements of ever increasing inhabitants and it maximizes accuracy and minimizes the process time, discrepancy and maintains uniqueness. The proposed system proves to be better than existing door-to-door campaign in India.
