Govt announces phase II of Aadhar

The state government on Monday announced the launch of the second phase of the Aadhar project, after registration for the 12-digit unique identification number was abruptly closed in February. 

According to Principal Secretary (revenue) Vijay Dev, applicants must get their documents attested by a government officer or a retired government officer. “Earlier, one could submit his papers and after taking his biometric print, an UID card was issued to him. However, once the process of delivering the UID cards begin, thousands of cards remained undelivered since many of them were not found at the addresses mentioned in the UID form. Learning from the experience, now the verification of documents is mandatory and one can get his papers verified by a government servant or even a retired government servant,” said Dev.

The Delhi government has already begun the exercise. After identifying the schools and government buildings which will act as makeshift offices for issue of the unique identification cards, announcement for phase II will be advertised.

Those who are already registered with the National Population Register (NPR), are required give their NPR number to the UID authorities. They need not submit any more documents.
The population of Delhi is nearly 16.76 crore. Over 13 crore people have already registered for UID in the first phase. “We are hoping that those left will get themselves registered now,” Dev said.
