Aadhaar centres to be set up in select Post Offices in Uttarakhand

Written by Anil Singh

Aadhaar centres will be set up at all the 13 general post offices (GPOs, one in each district of the state) and at select post offices in Uttarakhand. The centres at the select post offices, 318 sub post offices, will be set up in a “phased manner”. This is to make Aadhaar enrollment and updation of Aadhaar details (making a change or correction in particulars like mobile number or address) easier for people.

The first such center in Uttarakhand has already been inaugurated at the Dehradun GPO or Dehradun General Post Office on July 15 2017.

Much needed intervention

The Aadhaar centres at Post Offices will come as a much needed respite for people. They will not only make it easier for the people to apply for Aadhaar cards; they will also bring the much needed quality to the data of the existing Aadhaar Card holders. The existing Aadhaar Cards are laden with spelling and other mistakes.

[What is Aadhaar: Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identity number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the government of India, which is based on one’s bio-metric and demographic data]
