With a view to enable all residents to acquire Aadhaar cards, the Haryana government has decided to appoint introducers to help those residents to enroll in the system who do not have any proof of identity or address.
An official spokesman said the state registrar of UID had felt that there was a need to provide introducers and verifiers to accomplish the enrolment activities. The state government had notified numberdars and sarpanches as introducers in rural areas and municipal councillors for urban areas.
Similarly, serving patwaris and gram sachivs have been notified as verifiers while the retired class-3 and above employees of the central and state governments, including retired school teachers, can be appointed as verifiers for the purpose of Aadhaar enrolment.
He said introducers are those officially appointed persons, who would help such residents enroll in the system who do not have any proof of identity or address. Similarly, verifiers are those persons who are officially appointed to verify various documents like proof of identity, proof of address, proof of residence, proof of date of birth, etc., submitted by citizens at time of enrolment, in support of their claim for an Aadhaar card.
