Aadhar Card – Uidai
Aadhaar Card : Before few years, Government of India under the prime minister-ship of Mr. Man Mohan Singh decided to issue an unique identity card to all Indian citizens to avoid scandals in various Identity Proofs. Except the Election Identity (Electrol Identity) Card and Ration Card (Family Card), no other Identity proof (I.D.Proof) was used and accepted at all India Level at public at large. Many cases of fake Ration Cards and Election I.D. cards were alleged in Assam and many state of India. And thus, many cases of multiple Election Cards and Ration Cards were found and alleged in many states of India. Average and poor Indians have no approach to Identity Cards like Pan Card and Passport. Therefore, Government of India decided to issue an all Indian Level unique Identity proof like Aadhar Card to end the problems of scandals.
For creating infrastructure for issuance of Aadhaar Card, Government Of India set up a 100% Government owned authority known as ‘ Unique Identification Authority Of India ‘. This ‘ Unique Identification Authority Of India ‘ is now well known as ‘ UIDAI ‘ in short . A very big project was taken up by Uidai for implementation at mass level at all India level. Work of issuance of Aadhaar Card was / is executed through various Aadhaar Card centers established by Uidai through various private companies and almost, all the services related to Aadhaar Card are / were / made available online.
Aadhar Card is issued by Uidai through it’s agencies in dual languages English as well as local language and aadhar card is sent to the Aadhar applicant-resident by post. To avoid the delay in delivery of Aadhar Card & non-delivery of aadhar Card and to secure fast delivery of Aadhar Card, an online facility has also been provided. Through this facility, applicant-resident can download his e-aadhar Card if accepted by the Uidai. Therefore, first, applicant resident should check Aadhaar Card status and there after, he should download the e-aadhar without waiting for original aadhar by post. Uidai also provided all facilities online such as correction in Aadhaar Card and Reprint of aadhar Card etc. In case of any physical corrections related to face (photo), eyes and finger prints, aadhar-resident will have to attend regular Aadhar Center as these facilities are not available online.
