E-governance dept plans mechanism to keep a track on delivery of UID cards

The registration for Unique Identification (UID) under the ambitious Aadhar project is near completion in district.

Total number of people registered for the UID crossed 93 per cent on Sunday with 28 lakh citizens registering for the card so far after the project was launched last year.

As per the 2011 census, the district has an estimated population of 29.95 lakh out of which 27.90 lakh people registered for Aadhar. In Mysore city, the officials say, more than 98 per cent of residents are covered under UID.

“With inclusive of the outgrowth, the population of city is little above 9.10 lakh. About 98 per cent of the population are registered. There are five more Aadhar centres — Town Hall, Mysoreone centres in Jayanagar, Ramakrishnanagar, Kailasapuram and Hebbal which are open to facilitate people who failed to register for the card,” Nagendrappa, assistant revenue officer, MCC, who is also vested the responsibility of UID registration told Deccan Herald.

Padmanabha Pandey, assistant director (statistics), district administration, who is monitoring the progress of the project in the district told this newspaper that besides five centres in city corporation limits, the administration was running one centre each in taluk and hobli level for speedy completion of the project.

Deadline
“We hope to complete the process of registration in next two months. The department of e-governance in collaboration with UIDA is working on a mechanism to keep track of the number of registered people who have got their Aadhar card. It has become impossible for us to keep track of it as the card is directly posted to the registered member from UIDA,” Pandey replied to a query.

He disclosed that the progress for the registration has been good after the government announced to link various subsidies and benefits to Aadhar. We plan to carry out a survey to find out the number of people left out from the project and number of registered citizens without the card.

“Deputy commissioner will convene a meeting soon to chalk out the modalities of the survey. We have requested the DC’s office to arrange the meet at the earliest,” the official revealed.

Permanent centres
He said the Mysoreone centres will continue to work as a permanent UIDA centre to carry out any corrections in the card if needed, to update change of address or for new registration of the card after the UIDA achieves 100 per cent registration. Mysore would become the first district in the country to complete the project. It may be recalled that UIDA launched the project with Mysore district. The first kiosk was opened at dasara exhibition grounds in September last year.
