UIDAI meets to expedite Aadhaar enrolment in Uttar Pradesh

Lucknow, Aug 18 (IANS) The Regional Office of UIDAI on Thursday organised a meeting with enrolment agencies in the Uttar Pradesh capital to review the progress of Aadhaar enrolment in the state, an official said.

In the meeting, it was decided that Aadhaar enrolment must be speeded up so that the remaining population could be covered as soon as possible.

The meeting was informed that though almost 16 crore Aadhaar cards have been issued in the state, over five crore people, most of whom are below 18 years of age, are yet to be covered.

“Strategies were made to cover the children below 5 years of age at Aanganwadis and those between 5-18 years at schools and colleges so that eligible students can get their scholarships easily. In this regard necessary instructions have already been given to the concerned field functionaries by the State Government for expeditious enrolment of remaining population in these age groups,” the official told IANS.

Most of the enrolment agencies agreed that Aadhaar enrolment must be pursued vigorously so that the state could soon achieve 100 per cent coverage under Aadhaar.

It was also discussed that where Permanent Enrolment Centres (PECs) are easily accessible, students can go there for Aadhaar enrolment which is free of cost.

In those schools which are not located in close proximity to such centres, special camps would be set up after coordination with the respective principals, he added.
