All the Aadhaar Card holders will soon be able to avail Aadhaar related services from the comfort of their home. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is planning to provide door-to-door Aadhaar service like linking your phone number to Aadhaar, updating other information, and much more. Hence, there will be no need to visit the Aadhaar Seva Kendra in order to avail these services.
According to a report by livemint.com, the UIDAI is currently training 48,000 India Post Payment Bank postmen on the same. Following the training, the postmen will be bringing Aadhaar services to your home. They will also be trained to travel and reach out to more people living in the remotest areas and link Aadhaar number with mobile number, update details on Aadhaar, enroll children for Aadhaar, and much more.
Up to 1.5 lakh postal officers will be trained in 2 phases, as per the report. UIDAI will provide appropriate digital equipment, including a desktop or laptop-based Aadhar kit, to the postmen so that they can update Aadhaar card holders' information or enrol children for Aadhaar number issuance. “The UIDAI is making all necessary preparations to guarantee a seamless implementation of the strategy," officials informed.
Other than this, around 13,000 banking correspondents now employed by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology's Common Service Centre will also be enrolled by the UIDAI for the same. The UIDAI also plans to create an Aadhaar Sewa Kendra in each of the country's 755 districts in order to ensure quick updation of the data and information.
It can be noted that an Aadhaar card contains a 12-digit random number issued by the UIDAI (“Authority”) to the residents of India after satisfying the verification process laid down by the Authority. Any individual, irrespective of age and gender, who is a resident of India, may voluntarily enrol to obtain an Aadhaar number.
People willing to enrol has to provide minimal demographic and biometric information during the enrolment process which is totally free of cost. An individual needs to enrol for Aadhaar only once.
