Bangaloreans can now get Aadhar, their unique identification number, at 20 selected post offices in the city.

The facility, however, will be available at post offices in the rest of Karnataka in a phased manner only by July.

On Friday, the scheme to launch Aadhar at 236 post offices across the State was set in motion. P Raghavan, Chief General Manager of Karnataka Telecom Circle, was the first to receive the unique identification number.

The Karnataka Government, on its part, has also rolled out a massive campaign to enroll citizens in the scheme. The facility had been launched at post offices for public convenience, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) said.

The project to enroll people in Mysore and Tumkur districts is nearing completion. The scheme will be launched in districts under Belgaum and Gulbarga divisions in June itself, Ashok Dalwai, Deputy Director General, UIDAI, said.

The UIDAI aims at allotting the unique identification number to one billion people. Till now, three crore people have been enrolled. A further one crore unique identification numbers are ready to be assigned. According to Dalwai, 40 lakh people have been enrolled in the scheme in Mysore and Tumkur districts.

As many as 18 lakh cards had already been issued. The UIDAI will issue 10 lakh unique identification numbers daily from this October.

For enrolment in Aadhaar, personal details such as name, address, date of birth and gender will be sought. Besides, applicant’s photograph, impression of retina and thumb will also be recorded.
