As dictionary says:

Validate means-- check the validity or accuracy of something.

E.g. The data is validated by the computer.

But in the sentence below:

I agree to validate my voter id card details with my ration card.

Does it mean to compare voter id card details to ration card details?

Please explain.

    Using X and Y makes your question confusing. Are X and Y people? Things? Adjectives? Please don't use X and Y in questions, use the actual words.
