Families that have not registered themselves for Aadhar card have to approach their nearest registration centre, Joint Collector Pravin Kumar said in a press release here on Saturday.

More than four lakh citizens in GVMC area have to get registered for Aadhar card and registration was going on in every ward of GVMC. Mr. Pravin Kumar reviewed the Aadhar card registration with District Supply Officer (city) Jwala Prakash and other officials and said those who stand to get benefit under the direct cash transfer scheme, like white ration card holders, pensioners, those receiving scholarships and loans from government, having LPG connection, those applying for passport or for admission into schools or colleges and government employees, must have Aadhar card to receive the benefit.

Since the rush at Aadhar centres has come down the GVMC staff stopped distributing Aadhar registration forms at houses and people have to approach the registration centres where the forms will be issued free of cost.

Aadhar registration centres are also being run by Karvy Data Management, Alankrit and Smart Chip agencies and the post offices.

Mr. Pravin Kumar appealed to the voluntary organisations, consumer’ organisations, political parties and organisations to enlighten people about the need to get registered for Aadhar card and speed up the process.
