Apriori collects data for our India Voter Registration Roll directly from the India Electoral Authority for each administrative division. We collect data from all of the States and Union Territories in India. The data consists of all registered voters aged 18 years or older and contains over 1 Billion records. We parse, cleanse and normalize the data fields and also add various data elements based on information from India Post. Our database is the most complete and accurate set of India voter data available anywhere.
The data is typically updated on an annual schedule as it becomes available from the State and Union Territories Electoral Authorities. We constantly monitor the data release schedule and acquire, process, and make the updated data available soon thereafter. Data updates are available as either a full database replacement or as a delta update containing changes and additions only. You are notified via automatic process that the newest version of the database is available for download.
Our database is used for many purposes. For example, a credit reporting agency uses Apriori data to verify their internal data against our cleansed and extended government issued database of registered voters. This cross-reference helps them provide accurate and up to date consumer credit information to their clients.
Another client is a well-known international data aggregator that uses our India data to provide an API solution to its customers in e-commerce and the finance industry on a per transaction basis for incorporation in due-diligence processes.
