UIDAI enrolment from today

The first phase of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) enrolment scheme for ‘Aadhaar’ will be launched officially in Kodagu on Saturday.

The Aadhar scheme aims at providing unique identification numbers to each and every citizen of India.

Madikeri postal assistant superintendent K Veeranna said “the union government has started a campaign to provide unique identity numbers to every citizen. Anyone who is above five years can avail the number.”

The citizens have already started collecting information on Aadhaar at the post office. The registration for Aadhaar will be held from 9.30 am to 5 pm. 

The registration for Aadhaar will be done at Madikeri, Kushalnagar, Somwarpet and Virajpet post offices.

Persons desiring to have Aadhaar have to present the prescribed application form duly filled, to the post office along with identity proof. The counter assistant after verifying the application will issue a token.

The applicant will have to wait for enrolling, which involves a process of capturing biometric information such as 10 fingerprints and iris image. Once processed, the information will be sent to UIDAI. The UIDAI will send the Aadhaar to the address.

One should take all the original documents like ID to prove permanent address, date of birth to the post office.
 
The unique identity number will help in opening bank account, for applying for passport, driving license and others.
