One can easily check whether one's name is in the electoral roll online. People can search for their name on the voter list simply by heading to the National Voter Services Portal's Electoral Search page.

The NOTA option allows the voters to not vote for any candidates that are contesting the elections. However, the NOTA option is only a way to give negative feedback and it doesn't guarantee the winning candidate's dismissal in any manner.

Can I vote if my name is missing in voter list?

If a voter's name is missing, they can approach the Presiding Officer and check if their name is in the ASD (absent/shifted/dead/duplicate) list. If their name is present there, they must provide proof they are residing in the same constituency. They can submit copies of proof of age and Photo ID and show the originals for cross verification after which they can cast vote.
