When EPIC fail is the norm.

In my last post, I said:

Considering this is West Bengal bureaucracy… Wow!

This is why:

Meet Amit Banerjee. He is 49, but if you go by his voter identity card, he is going on 267. The “EPIC proportions” of Banerjee’s age is thanks to a goof-up by the Election Commission.

According to Banerjee’s EPIC card, he was 259 years old on January 1, 2003.

Yes, that’s the norm we’re used to living by.

(And, um… Pardon the pun in the title.)
