Kapurthala, July 5

A review meeting on Aadhaar progress in Kapurthala district was held under the chairpersonship of Bhawna Garg, Deputy Director General, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) Regional Office Chandigarh, in presence of Deputy Commissioner Kapurthala Vishesh Sarangal.

Bhawna Garg urged district officials from the Child Welfare Department and School Education Department to make roster-wise plans to cover pending population in the category of 0-5 years and 5-18 years through anganwaris and schools, respectively. Officials said a total of 63 Aadhaar enrolment centres were functional in the district as of now.

The Deputy Director General also highlighted the need to focus on covering children pending for mandatory biometric update (MBUs) — fingerprints and iris scan of children after they have attained the age of 5 and 15 years. MBU is free of cost.

Garg said residents while going for Aadhaar enrolment or update needed to check their details carefully as there was a limit for correction/updating details like name, date of birth and gender in Aadhaar. While name in Aadhaar can be updated twice, date of birth can be updated once and also gender can be corrected once.

She said charges for updation are fixed and in case residents are overcharged they can call on UIDAI toll free number 1947. Residents can order Aadhaar PVC card from UIDAI website by paying fees of Rs 50.
