STORY HIGHLIGHTS

Kalyan: Aadhar card, which is the photo identity proof of your citizenship is being made illegally in Kalyan and Dombivali. Shockingly, Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation’s (KDMC) corporators are interfering in this whole illegal process. And more shockingly, KDMC deputy commissioner agreed this fact. But he clarified that corporators doesn’t have any right or authority to give the Aadhar card to the citizens.

Our Jai Maharashtra’s reporter got the wind of this shocking matter which was being operated at Kalyan’s Beturkar Pada area. When he went there and inquired about the whole incident, some shocking revelations came out. People, who doesn’t have the adequate proofs of their residential area were being given these Aadhar Cards by merely showing the Corporators’ reference application.

About this incident, our reporter asked a question to KDMC deputy commissioner Ganesh Deshmukh. And Deshmukh agreed that this kind of incidents are happening in that area. But Deshmukh also told that, “corporators are not allowed to authorise such kind of important identity proofs without KDMC’s consent. It is totally illegal.”

That is how Jai Maharashtra revealed all these illegal wrongdoings were done by the KDMC corporators. These corporators are doing these things just to secure their vote bank, which is very sad. But something needs to be done about this as soon as possible.

 

India- Officials suspect accuracy of census data ? #WTFnews #aadhaar #Nandanilekani


Discrepancies in issue of Aadhaar cards

SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT,  Hyderabad,The Hindu, Oct 2, 2012

Enrolment and the cards generated are more than the population

Hyderabad seems to have achieved a dubious distinction as far as the all important Aadhaar cards are concerned.

Against the population of 40.10 lakh as per the 2011 census, the enrolment so far is 47.98 lakh. And if this surprises you, hold on – the actual number of cards generated are even higher – 49.93 lakh.

No explanation

Civil Supplies authorities do not have a plausible explanation for this strange phenomenon. They think Hyderabadis working in different parts of the country might have indicated their residential address as Hyderabad resulting in the enrolment and Aadhaar card generation figure exceeding the population.

However, they refuse to part with the district wise enrolment figures and instead give the combined enrolment figures for Hyderabad and the neighbouring Ranga Reddy district.

Accuracy of data

Some officials also suspect the accuracy of the census data since the number of people who came out for enrolment are far more.

As of now, 18 lakh persons in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts remain to be enrolled. Authorities hope to cover them by March 31. So far a total of 74.92 lakh Aadhaar cards have been generated and delivered out of the enrolled 85.45 lakh. The State capital and the adjoining Ranga Reddy district has combined population of 93.07 lakh.

The Civil Supplies Department is operating 29 centres with 61 kits in both the districts.

Aadhaar card registration centres are also being operated in Adilabad, Srikakulam, East Godavari and municipal areas of Kurnool, Mahabubnagar, Nalgonda, Nizamabad, Karimnagar, Khammam, Warangal and Medak.

Statistics show that 5.05 crore persons have been enrolled in the State out of the population of 8.47 crore.

Of this 4.62 crore cards were generated while 4.45 crore delivered through post offices.

One can check up the status of one’s Aadhaar card by logging on to the website uidai.gov.in and entering the 14 digit enrolment ID.
