From now onwards, the post office will be the centre for registration and issue of the Unique Identification Card, or the ‘Adhaar’ (meaning: Base) card, a scheme started by the Government of India.
Post office launched this scheme on Tuesday, 2nd August 2011 by the Chief Minister, Mr. Ashok Gehlot, Mr. Sachin Pilot, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Communications and Information for Rajasthan via video conferencing from Jaipur, at the Chetak Circle Post Office in Udaipur, where Mrs. Rajni Dangi, Director of the Ajmer Postal Board, R.P. Gupta were also present, where the first registration for the Adhaar Card was made in favor of a team member of UdaipurBlog, Mr. Gaurav Bhattacharya.
How to get the Adhaar Card: This card gives a unique 12 digit identification number to each citizen of India. To apply for the Unique ID, the applicant must bring with him a photo ID proof, as well as a valid address proof. The applicant will then be biometrically scanned for his fingerprints, and the retina impressions at the dedicated counter for the same. The cards will be sent within 3 months to their respective applicants via post.
