More Aadhaar centres needed

Basavaraj Havaldar, Mandya Feb 19, 2013, DHNS

The registration process for the Aadhaar cards, which is said to be one of the proof of identity for those residing in India has begun in Mandya district, but lack of centres has resulted in the process progressing at a snail’s pace putting the residents into a lot of inconvenience.

Malavalli taluk in the district has a lone centre to enable public to enrol their names for the cards, the situation is chaotic and to prevent the same some of the residents reserve their places in the line by arriving at the spot the previous night itself.

The situation is similar at the centres in the city too. Even after waiting patiently for hours, they are not able to register their names, claim the people.

One of the women Gowramma said that she was sent back the previous day asking her to bring relevant documents and she had come to the place at 6 am. Even after two hours the work is yet to be done, she laments.

Though there are 102 centres sanctioned for the district, registration work is being done at only eight centres.

One centre each has been opened at Malavalli and Pandavapura. Centres have opened at Kothathi, Kuvempunagar, Bandigowda layout, Kalegowda and Adarsha school and CMC office premises.

16 lakh left

About 1,01,002 people were distributed Aadhaar cards during the enrolment drive that was held a couple of months ago. The population of the district is 17.65 lakh and more than 16 lakh people are yet to get Aadhaar cards.

Responding to various complaints on the previous company that was on contract, the government had cancelled its contract and has given the responsibility to Sriman Infocom, said an officer. Lack of staff is also said to be one of the reasons for delay in process.

The taluk administration has to decide on identifying place for the centre and also provide necessary furniture and facilities.

A meeting was convened recently presided over by the deputy commissioner to discuss the issue.

More centres would be opened soon said social welfare officer E V Venkataramana Reddy.
The process takes a minimum 15 minutes for each person and with one machine only 30 to 45 persons can be enrolled said Vasu of Sriman Infotech.
