The State Government has issued a circular to district collector, municipal commissioner and other enrollment agencies to set up Aadhaar registration centres at schools, colleges and public places, owing to public demand for the same.
The Aadhaar card enrollment is on across the State. However, there are some complaints regarding the drive. As a result, the government has given orders to the district collector to implement the registration process at public places. People do not get sufficient information regarding venues of the registration; many are deprived of the benefits of the scheme. These centres are temporary establishments and cause inconvenience to citizens as they are often unaware about their duration and location in a particular area. Thus, these centres will be established in public places.
Accordingly, public places such as government buildings, schools and colleges will be the new venues for Aadhaar card registration. It is expected that the agency involved in the registration should display guidelines, instructions on a board at the venue. The board should also carry information regarding the registration process, the form for it and other details. It should also mention that Aadhaar card registration is free of cost.
"The district collector, municipal commissioner should control the Aadhaar card registration work. In case of any malpractices, action should be taken against the operator, supervisor of the agency concerned.
Deputy collector Manjusha Mutha said in the next week, centres would be set up at public places guided by the government.
