The district administration on Saturday called a meeting of the agencies engaged in preparation of Aadhaar card and directed them to make the enrollment procedure more people-friendly so that they do not face hassles.
Gurgaon deputy commissioner PC Meena sought a report of the centres opened by various agencies in the district and the number of machines deployed there. He said that information provided will be verified by the administration. He added that the progress would be reviewed on a fortnightly basis.
City magistrate Anu has been appointed as the nodal officer to make the interface between public and enrollment agencies smoother. The administration has decided to call a joint meeting of resident welfare associations (RWAs) and service provider agencies on Tuesday.
The presidents of group housing societies can also take part in the meeting which is being called to chalk out a schedule for preparation of Aadhaar cards so that the work is completed in a more systematised manner.
Meena has also directed the agencies to inform the administration whenever they change the location of any centre so that citizens can be informed accordingly and residents in nearby areas can benefit from it.
Presently, 71 machines are deployed at 24 different centres in Gurgaon. The agencies, however, have assured to increase the number of machines to 250 in the next three weeks.
Officials claimed that of the city’s population of 15 lakh, 45% have been enrolled and 8.28 lakh people are yet to be covered.
