The main purpose of opening Aadhaar enrolment centres is to assist residents in getting enrolled for Aadhaar seamlessly and getting their details updated offline. Following are the activities carried out at Aadhaar enrolment centres across India:
Primarily, there are two types of Aadhaar card enrolment centres operating in India. These are:
Set up on a full-time basis, permanent enrolment centres cater to all Aadhaar needs of residents. Primarily, they carry out Aadhaar enrolment as well as updation activities. These centres are operated by authorised agencies and are secure to visit and submit the application for Aadhaar enrolment.
On the other hand, there are temporary enrolment centres also, which are operated by non-empanelled agencies. These centres operate on a contractual basis. The primary aim of almost all of these centres is fresh Aadhaar enrolment. Most of the temporary Aadhaar enrolment centres have either ceased their operations or are going to end their operations soon, as the process of Aadhaar enrolment is reaching a point of saturation.
According to the new Government circulars and notices, all Aadhaar card enrolment centres are supposed to shift in either government or bank premises. Currently, there are around 25,000 Aadhaar enrolment centres across the country. UIDAI has mandated all public sector as well as private banks to open Aadhaar enrolment centre in at least one out of 10 branches. At present, collectively there are 1,20,000 bank branches in India. With this approach, the government plans to shift 12,000 enrolment centres in public and private sector bank premises, and the remaining centres in other government offices and departments. Prior to this, Aadhaar enrolment centres operated from private premises. This will end up ensuring that these centres do not misuse their authority and charge more for the services provided. Moreover, it will help the government to carry out operations in secure environment.
