Assam: School Students to get Aadhaar Card, Strict Action Against Anyone Demanding Payment
GUWAHATI: The administration of 27 districts of Assam launched the Aadhaar enrolment program for students of 1 to Class 12.
In Guwahati, the program was launched by Deputy Commissioner Biswajit Pegu at Kamrup Academy Higher Secondary School, Chenikuthi. Also, present on the occasion was B Kalyan Chakraborty, Principal Secretary of the Education Department.
With this, free Aadhaar cards will be provided to students of 6-18 years of age. In Kamrup (M),
the process will be undertaken in 6 schools, and 22 panchayats.
While 87 Aadhaar centres are already functioning in Guwahati, DC Biswajit Pegu informed that the administration is trying to establish over 200 such centres.
"People who still haven't registered for Aadhaar card may do so in any of these centres. Along with students the parents can also avail the facility. The Aadhaar registration process is completely free, and if any payment is asked for, necessary action will be taken if the issue is brought to the notice of the administration," said Biswajit Pegu.
