Aadhar enrollment start from October 6 in Sonitpur District
Aadhar enrolment will be rolled out in Sonitpur from October 6 through 18 centers in the first phase in Sonitpur district and Aadhar is a 12-digit number issued by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) to every Individual Resident of India, Said Manoj Kumar Deka, Deputy Commissioner, Sonitpur while addressing a press meet held at DC conference Hall in presence of Faruk Alarm, DDC, Kishan Kumar Sharma and Kulen Sarma Additional Deputy Commissioner, Sonitpur.
The enrolment procedure involves the collection of biometric and demographic data like thumb impression, iris san, photographs along with proof of age, address and identity for an Aadhaar number.
DC urged people not to confuse Aadhaar with citizenship updating process. “Aadhaar is not proof of citizenship. Both the processes are completely different. Aadhaar is the only unique identification of an individual with biometric data,” Manoj Deka added.
