To streamline the registration process, Aadhaar card enrolment centres will be set up on private premises such as housing societies and companies across the city.
At a meeting chaired by deputy director of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) VP Tyagi recently, deputy commissioner PC Meena said a schedule would be prepared to set up Aadhaar camps in various societies.
However, he sought cooperation from Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) to provide adequate space to officials to set up the camp and ensure that all members of the society got themselves registered.
The agencies were asked to send a progress report to the city magistrate every week.
Similarly, other RWAs and companies can also send requests to the district administration for organising special enrolment camps on their premises.
Meena informed that as per a government notification, ‘e-aadhaar’ is equivalent to the original ‘Aadhaar’. He directed all enrolment agencies to issue an acknowledgement slip to every person so that he/she can check the status of the Aadhaar card.
At present, there are eight enrolment agencies in the city.
“A person can know the status of his card by logging on to www.uidai.gov.in. The locations of the enrolment centres can also be seen on the website. Also, they can call on the helpline number, 1800-300-1947, for any query,” Tyagi said.
Meena also asked the general public to provide proofs of identity, residence and date of birth at the time of enrolment.
The data would be entered as per the proof record of a person.
