The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) plans to set up ‘Aadhaar Seva Kendras’, similar to the concept of Passport Seva Kendras, covering 53 cities across India, official sources said.
The proposed Aadhaar centres, to be set up at an estimated project cost of Rs 300-400 crore, are meant to facilitate enrollment and updation.
They will operate in addition to the 30,000 centres which are run by banks, post offices and in government premises (offering similar Aadhaar services).
The Aadhaar Seva Kendras will provide people the facility to book prior appointment for enrollment and updation, officials said adding that each metro will have four such centres while other cities will have two centres each.
The centres will be operational by April 2019.
It is estimated that as many as 4 lakh people update their Aadhaar details (address, photo, mobile number amongst others) every day, while the number of enrollments stands at about one lakh.
