There are others also in the list whose ages have been mentioned between 200 and 600 years. A significant number of voters in the list have seen many centuries and most of these multi-centenarians live in ward number one of the cantonment area. The oldest in the list is Hari Singh whose age is mentioned as 747 years by the Meerut Cantonment Board (MCB). Another voter Ashok Kumar said that these mistakes were sheer negligence by the election commission. Meanwhile, Meerut Cantonment Board (MCB) election official DN Yadav called them a printing error.
