Aadhar enrollment in Assam to start from August end
GUWAHATI: In a relief to the citizens of Assam the much-awaited Aadhar card enrollment process will start from the last week of August. The Aadhar implementation date has been extended by the Supreme Court of India from 31st March 2018 to March 2019.
The process has not been initiated formally in Assam and neighbouring Meghalaya though a few public sector banks have been acting as enrollment centres for some time now.
There will be 10 zones in the state and if required the number of Aadhar enrollment centres would be increased from the present 1241 centres. People can visit these centres with the necessary documents and get themselves enrolled for the 12-digit unique identification number. State government employees will be entrusted with the verification of documents during the Aadhar enrolment process.
According to sources in the General Administration Department (GAD) which comes under the Chief Minister's office, work plans submitted by the vendors are being scrutinized and very soon work order will be issued to the eligible vendors.
A total of 20 firms have responded to the bid floated by the GAD. The UDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) has declared the GAD as the State Register for Aadhar.
