CRPF organises mass UID camp for its personnel

THE first mass camp for the Aadhaar UID card registration began at the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) campus in Yelahanka on Thursday. More than 12,000 CRPF personnel and their families will be issued unique identity numbers in 15 days.

Facilitated by the State government’s Centre for e-Governance, three counters have been provided at the recreation room with biometric facility to scan finger prints and irises of the applicants.

Besides copying the information on the UID application, the original address proof and other documents will be scanned and sent to a central database repository for verification. The registered persons will then receive their cards by post within two months.

Stating the need for a UID mass camp at the campus, CRPF’s DIGP K Arkesh said: “Although 
UID is essential for all citizens of the country, CRPF personnel need it more since they are highly mobile and have to present their identity proof at various places.”

Different time schedules have been chalked out to ensure all the members –– from new born babies to senior citizens –– in the campus enrol and receive the Aadhaar card. About 1,200 personnel from other CRPF campuses in Taralu Post, Kanakapura Road, will also travel to Yelahanka for registration.

Dr D S Ravindran, CEO, Centre for e-Governance, assured that the number of counters at Yelahanka will be increased from the present three to 10 to ensure that everyone was registered by July 31.

Public camp next month
Speaking to Deccan Herald, Ravindran said people will be enrolled for UID in Bangalore and Mysore division from August 10 and the Centre was going to organise mass enrolment camp for the public from August 15 in the City. 

There will be 2,000 stations across the City, which will work 24/7. People can also get appointments by calling these centres to save time. He also informed that they were in the process of enlisting an independent audit agency to rule out any errors in
