Aadhaar: Will Mysore finish first in the country?

Aadhaar: Will Mysore finish first in the country?

Awaiting rare honour

He was speaking after reviewing the progress of Aadhaar at Deputy Commissioner’s office in the district, here on Monday.

Though the pace of registration for Aadhaar has been good, it can do with a little help to speed up the process. Centres have been opened at Village Panchayat level to encourage people from villages to have easy access to the facility. However, people should be encouraged to come for registration by setting up centres at the level of each village - by means of fixing up dates - and provide boost to the project.

Reward too

Mysore may take home the honour of being the first district in the nation to complete the process - in case it achieves it before the end of May. Nodal Officer who strives to achieve this goal within the said deadline will be conferred with
‘Aadhaar Governance Award’.

Respective Tahsildars have been entrusted with the responsibility of Aadhaar Registration Centres. And, setting up of such centres within the city limits has been left to the discretion of Deputy Commissioners.  

Assuring immediate attention and help to matters or problems related Aadhaar State Chief Executive Officer for Aadhar Veerendra said officers can seek help from his team if they have any issues pertaining to Aadhaar.

Stressing that some taluks had low turnout and registration for the facility, he said officers concerned should work hard to help people access Aadhaar, more than before.

Aadhaar Public Relations Officer Prabhakar, Additional Deputy Commissioner (in charge) Zaara Nasreen, Tahsildars from all taluks, Hunsur Assistant Commissioner Lingamurthy, Mysore City Corporation Officer Nagendrappa and others were present.
