Aadhaar, permanent account number, Linking Aadhaar with PAN, Income tax returns Enrolment centres will have to shift from private locations into government premises such as district collectorates, zila parishad offices, municipal offices, banks, block offices, taluk offices or other delivery offices.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) asked States to make preparations for carrying out the Aadhaar enrolment exercise at government or municipal premises.

According to a PTI report, almost 25,000 active enrolment centres across India will come under direct supervision of the authorities. It will also help to curb cases of overcharging by private operators as the government can closely monitor the enrolment and updation. Ajay Bhushan Pandey, UIDAI CEO, wrote to the States asking them to identify centres within government premises for enrolment and updation activities by July 31.

“There are times when people find it difficult to locate enrolment centres and many times they complain to us. Or they may go to a centre and find it closed. At times, there are complaints of overcharging,” said Pandey. “Private entrepreneurs will have to find supervised premises or they have to close down business.”

Enrolment centres will have to shift from private locations into government premises such as district collectorates, zila parishad offices, municipal offices, banks, block offices, taluk offices or other delivery offices. It would result in greater convenience for residents, Pandey told PTI.

The state government or municipal premises must set up their own enrolment centres with their own personnel as enrolment operators. They can alternatively engage UIDAI’s empanelled enrolment agencies after reviewing their credentials. UIDAI has also said that at least three centres should be established initially in every block or taluk. The process of shifting enrolment operations to centres should be completed by August 31, 2017, UIDAI said.

This move assumes importance as now most of the government and other services require Aadhaar. It is also important to link your Aadhaar and PAN.

            Govt.Ke Employee Hi Kam Karte To Private Me Kam Dene Ki Kya Jaroot Thi.. Govt Yadi Chahe Ki Aadhar Center Band Karwana Hai To Pahle Unka Balance Payment Kar Do Jo Ek Saal Se Baki Hai Aur Machine Ko Wapes Le Lo. Aadhar Center Me Jo Employee Rake Hai. Unki Galtiyo Pe To Dhayan Do, Post Office Wale To Aadhar Card Ki Copy To Home Delivery Nahi Kara Sake, Bori Ki Bori Post Office Me padi Hai.Udai Wale Unke Yha To Cchape Mare. Public Apna Aadhar Card Mangne Jati Hai To Bori Dekha Dete Hai.Ek Majdur Ek Din Roji Jo Ki Kam Se kam 250 Rs Daily Per Apna Aadhar Card Khojta Hai,Yadi Anpad hai To Jai Ram Jee Ki.Jitne Pahle GOvt Ke Dwara aadhar banaye Hai Usme Itni Galti Hai Ke Unhe Dubara Banwana Pada,Nhi Date Of Birth Sahi Hai nahi Mobile No Dale hai.4 -4 Din Line Me Lagkar 1000 Rs Ki Roji Gawa Kar Aadhar banwaye Usme Bhi Galti,Bhai Niyam banao Jo Practical Ho

              It is better to raid on Aadhaar Card Enrolment Centre who are overcharging inspite of Closing down/shifting Aadhaar Card Enrolment Centre. Closing down/Shifting will also effect to Aadhaar Centre who are going through UIDAI terms and conditions. Government should get punish/penalty on those who are overcharging. On the other side Government should think for those who are investing huge amount in IRIS/Finger Print Scanner/Printer/Computer/Laptop/Shop Rent/Electricity/ ry of Supervisor/ ry of Operator/ ry of Verifier (Government Retired person) and other expenses.

                We all know how government agencies work. One has to wait at least 3 days to get his/her enrolment done. Even, government employees cannot make more than 10-12 aadhaar per day. In September, the situation will become worse. Government should think twice before making such move. It is always better to remove BAD FISH FROM POND INSTEAD OF CHANGING THE WHOLE POND.

                  25 lakh families in Rajasthan are unable to withdraw ration even after seeding #AADHAARFAIL with their ration card. 2. #AADHAAR authentication does not work for half billion Indians. 3. AADHAAR authentication does not work even after updating bio-metrics and waiting for 90 days 4. AADHAAR bio-metrics can be stolen, printed and used for #AADHAAR pay 5. #AADHAAR does not work for NRIs, people outside India 6. AADHAR can not be generated if a person's fingerprint matches with someone else's with 60 percentage probability. 7. Rogue government can deactivate your #AADHAAR blocking your gas, electricity, mobile, bank account 8. AADHAAR works for millions of illegals staying in India 9. AADHAAR is blocking subsidies for millions of legitimate people 10. Take 10 lakh insurance for each #AADHAAR failure case or delete aadhaar bio-metrics from aadhaar database, archive and deactivate #AADHAAR. Jai Hind
