Bengaluru: Several migrant students and professionals are in a dilemma about enrolling for Aadhar. Since many often need to relocate for higher studies or jobs, it becomes difficult for them to go back to their home states every time for documents and follow up with the local offices.
Unaware of the exact rules, Sharmila Mukherjee, a student, was asked to apply for her Aadhar card in her hometown when she recently went to enrol in Bengaluru. She is a resident of Asansol who did her graduation in Kolkata and is now doing her Masters in Bengaluru. Her IDs show her permanent address and she was asked to get her Aadhar card made there. But such a rule doesn’t exist and she was unnecessarily harassed.
As per the rules, “Anybody can get their Aadhar cards made anywhere in India. It is on a national platform. Students or professionals can apply in whichever state they are currently residing. All they have to ensure is that there should be someone to collect their Aadhar cards at their permanent address when it is sent by mail, in case they are not there at that point of time.” said Ashok Dalwai, Deputy Director- General, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).
The process is the same for everyone, irrespective of the address their IDs have and where they are currently residing. They need to provide their identity proof and address proof while enrolling for their Aadhar card and their biometric authentication will be done at the location where the enrolment has been done. If the documents are authentic and verified, then there should be no problem for anybody to get their Aadhar card, Dalwai added.
He, however,pointed out that multiple enrolments should not be done as that would delay the process and every individual would get only one Aadhar card.

 

#India -2 tribal women die post ligation surgery #Westbengal #Vaw

DURGAPUR, 14 DEC: Two tribal women died today post ligation surgery  at a rural block hospital in Asansol today. Chandmoni Hembram of Kalipathar village and Radharani Tudu of Gaurangadihi village, who underwent ligation at Kelejora Block Primary Health Centre along with 12 other tribal women, died while they were taken to Asansol District Hospital in the late afternoon.

The Asansol administration apprehended that the casualties might provoke the tribals residing in the villages surrounding the rural hospital to unleash attack on the block medical officer and his family. The ADM, Asansol, Mr Jayanta Aikat said: “We have asked police to beef up security surveillance across the hospital area to prevent any untoward situation.”

Tribal housewives queued up at the Kelejora Block Primary Health Centre in Baraboni, about 15 km from Asansol town today where a mass ligation camp was organised. In all 14 women from the adjoining villages underwent tubal ligation surgery at the Kelejora Hospital today.

Chandmoni Hembram and Radharani Tudu, both aged around 40 were also taken to the camp and according to the hospital authorities:

“Their cases became complicated as both complained of gradual deterioration within an hour of operation.” The ADM, Asansol, Mr Jayanta Aikat said: “The medical officers told me that both the women were physically weak, so the rural hospital referred them immediately to the Asansol District Hospital.” On their way to the hospital, both the women died triggering panic among the medical staff. The bodies were kept under supervision at the Asansol Hospital for the night. MLA, Baraboni, Mr Bidhan Upadhyaya said: “Baraboni is a block having 43 villages under eight panchayats and the tribal and downtrodden mass contribute a significant percentage of the demography. The casualties, besides making ligation a fear factor among the backward communities, would also create tension in the area.”

Tubal ligation is a surgery performed to block woman’s fallopian tubes for permanent birth

control.

The district administration has engaged the BDO, Baraboni to table a report on the matter at the earliest.
