The State Government claim of 100 per cent unique identity numbers (UID) through enrolment in Aadhaar project in Jagatsinghpur district, has fallen flat.

With complaints of errors in final cards residents of Jagatsinghpur remain apprehensive about the efficiency of Aadhaar project.

Pointing out glaring mistakes in the already issued UID cards, individuals in the city have demanded a facility to rectify them. In most UID cards, the name and address of the card holder are often misspelt and in some, religions have been erroneously changed.

Balram Das of Sanpur village said his Aadhaar card reads the name of his village as Allipingal, which is 12 km from Sanpur. Another Sulochana Behera said her surname has been written as Begum instead of Behera. Similar cases have been reported at Jagatsinghpur, Raghunathpur and Biridi.

Protesting the errors, villagers of Sanpur recently stormed the Sanpur Majurai Primary School demanding correction in the cards. There are mistakes in the names of surnames, villages and post offices.

Jagatsinghpur Tehsildar Amber Kumar Kar said measures are being taken to rectify the errors in Aadhaar cards.

Aadhaar is a 12 digit individual identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India on behalf of the Government of India.
