SRIKAKULAM: Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) will soon establish data entry centres in all villages to collect details of citizens so that it can issue Aadhar cards with unique identification number. Officials of UIDAI and the Planning Commission conducted a review meeting in the Zilla Parishad conference hall over the progress of the Aadhar card programme in the district.

They have urged public representatives including ZPTC and MPTC members to create awareness among the public over Aadhar cards which would provide unique identification number to every citizen of the country. UIDAI director Mr. Ravindra said applications for the cards would be available at all the ration shops and AP Online centres. According to him, people above 5 years of age were eligible to get the cards.

“The scheme is very important for the downtrodden sections as Aadhar cards will enable them to get many benefits from the government,” he said. “Corrections in the existing ration cards will also be possible with the entry of new data which is essential for issuing Aadhar cards,” he added.

Srikakulam Zilla Parishad chairperson Palavalasa Rajasekharam, ZP CEO Sudhakar, District Civil Supplies Officer Nirmala Bhai, DRDA Project Director Rajanikantha Rao and other officials participated in the review meeting.

The senior bureaucrats clarified doubts the officials and public representatives had through a power point presentation. They explained how data entry programme will be conducted in every village in a phased manner.

Awareness programme

KAKINADA: An awareness programme on ‘Adhar' unique identity card was held for the officials and elected representatives at the Collectorate here on Thursday.

District Collector M. Ravi Chandra said the 12-digit unique identity number would help the people easily avail the various welfare programmes being offered by the government.

He said East Godavari was one of the seven districts in which the issue of the cards would be launched in the first phase. As many as 600 centres would be opened across the district and at least 10 centres would be opened in each mandal. Joint Collector K. Sasidhar and other officials were present.
