PSU banks roped in to distribute Aadhaar cards

The district administration will avail help of six banks for distribution of Aadhaar cards in the district. Bank of India, Canara Bank, Union Bank of India, Bank of Maharashtra, Dena Bank and State Bank of India have joined hand with the administration.

Briefing reporters at DC office here on Thursday, Deputy Commissioner A B Ibrahim said it was for the city limit and banks themselves select locations and work with the help of agencies. Bank of India has already started operating in 12 centres with SREI agency. Other banks would start the service from Monday, he said.

There are 38 Aadhaar centres in the district and around four lakh people are yet to get Aadhaar cards in the district and 80 per cent progress has been achieved.

Aadhaar cards are being provided through 15 Nada Kacheris and Aadhaar kits are being distributed in BEO offices for schoolchildren. “We have written to the State government not to insist Aadhaar card for scholarships. It would take at least six months to reach the target in the district,” he added.

Income certificate

The DC said applications galore for income and caste certificates from past one-and-half-month as many parents think that July 15 is the last date to apply for a few scholarships.
The district administration  has received 6,581 applications in March, 6,493 in April, 10,424 in June, 24,243 in July and 22,075 applications for income and caste certificates in last one week.

As per the statistics from January 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015, the DC has solved 612 cases out of 842. There are around 230 cases pending, which were received after April, 2015.

Disputes related to revenue appeal, land disputes, land grant, municipality, house site, SC/ST issues, tax appeal, magisterial cases, land acquisition- compensation, arbitration case and few other issues can be solved in the court.

With the help of lawyers and officials a silent march is going on. Meanwhile, he informed that around 3,224 cases are pending before Mangaluru Assistant Commissioner court and 819 before Puttur AC court.
