From Tuesday onwards, the unique identification (UID) card has become mandatory for any government related work.

Delhi government’s revenue and other departments have made the UID number mandatory for most transactions. The revenue department had already made it compulsory last year.

“For getting a LPG connection, marriage certificate and even for registration of the property, the UID card is now mandatory. Those who haven’t got the card can give their enrolment number,” an official said.

Officials said those who have still not enrolled themselves can do it at the SDM or deputy commissioner's office.

From January 1, the UID card is compulsory for accessing most of the government's services. The Hindustan Times was the first to report the revenue department's decision to make the UID compulsory for public dealings.

“We have already made it mandatory in some of our districts and from January 1, it will cover all services provided by the revenue department,” a Delhi government official said.
