In order to ensure maximum enrolment of people for Aadhar cards,the Haryana government has introduced a policy of introducers and verifiers in the state. The purpose for launching the concept is to get even those people enrolled for Aadhar who do not have any valid proof of identity (PoI) or proof of address (PoA). The state government has issued orders to this effect last week on May 16.
According to the orders,introducers will help such residents enrol in the system who do not have any PoI or PoA. Verifiers will verify the documents (PoI,PoA,date of birth) submitted by the citizens at the time of enrolment,in support of their claim for Aadhar card.
The state registrar has notified nambardars and sarpanchs as introducers,and patwaris and gram sachivs as verifiers for rural areas and municipal councillors as introducers and central and state government school teachers,class C and above grade employees as verifiers for the urban areas.
The government has also asked persons wishing to be engaged as introducers or verifiers to apply to the concerned area Deputy Commissioners. After scrutiny of applications,the DC will forward the names to state registrar who will take necessary steps to notify each person by name.
So far,about 37 per cent of the total population of Haryana has been enrolled for Aadhar by the Unique Identification Authority of India.
In order to expedite the enrolment work,the state government has selected four agencies. These agencies will start enrolments in camp mode from June 1 in 17 districts of Haryana. The DCs of 17 districts have been asked to provide enrolment agencies adequate space at e-disha centres or any other suitable place with easy public access for setting up permanent enrolment centres.
The government aims at maximum enrolment,for which we will soon be launching a media campaign on Aadhar card. We hope to enrol each and every resident of the state for Aadhar card by the end of this financial year,said Krishna Mohan,Additional Chief Secretary and Financial Commissioner (Revenue and Disaster Management-cum-Registrar UID).
