Don’t have UID card? Go, get it this time

The unique identification project was initially conceived by the Planning Commission as an initiative that would provide identification for each resident across the country and would be used primarily as the basis for efficient delivery of welfare services. It would also act as a tool for effective monitoring of various programmes and schemes of the government.

The brand name of the Unique Identification number (UID) is Aadhaar. The name and logo for the unique numbers, to be issued by the UIDAI, have been developed keeping in mind the transformational potential of the programme. In Karnataka, the second phase of enrolment for UID will begin soon and here is how you can apply for it.

How to get an Aadhaar card
Aadhaar enrolment is free and one can go to any authorised enrollment centre with their identity and address proof. The UIDAI process accepts 18 PoI (Proof of Identity) and 33 PoA (Proof of Address) documents. One can also check http://uidai.gov.in/how-to-enrol-for-aadhaar.html for a nationally valid list of documents.

Common proofs of identity and address are election photo ID card, ration card, passport and driving licence. Photo ID cards like PAN card and Govt ID cards are permissible for identity proof. Address proof documents also include water/ electricity/telephone bills of the last three months.
In case you do not have any of the above common documents or you do not have any documents, log on to http://uidai.gov.in/how-to-enrol-for-aadhaar.html for more details.

Enrolment is only once
At the enrolment centre, fill your personal details in the form. Your photo, fingerprints and iris scan will also be taken as a part of the enrolment. You can review the details you have provided and make corrections during enrolment itself. You will get an acknowledgment slip with a temporary enrolment number and other details captured during enrolment. You need to enroll only once. Enrolling again is a waste of time as you will get only one Aadhaar number.

Waiting time for Aadhaar
The waiting time may vary from 60 to 90 days after receipt of resident data packets in CIDR. However, it could take even longer in case enrolment is done through NPR exercise. After enrolment, quality checks are done by the enrolment centre supervisors, followed by correction process (where required) and data packet consolidation. In case of any errors, the packet goes on hold. The Department of Posts is entrusted with the responsibility of printing and delivery of Aadhaar letters. Depending on backlog for generation, location of delivery, etc, the postal department may ordinarily take 3-5 weeks to print and deliver Aadhaar letters to the residents.

Check you Aadhaar Status
The top of your acknowledgement slip contains a 14-digit enrolment number and the 14 digit date and time of enrolment. These 28 digits together form your temporary enrolment ID (EID). Enter the 14 digit enrolment number and the enrolment date and time in the boxes provided in the link https://portal.uidai.gov.in/ResidentPortal/statusLink

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
