18,000 banks branches, post offices have Aadhaar facility now: UIDAI

Team Udayavani, Jun 20, 2018, 4:47 PM IST

New Delhi: Less than a year after banks and post offices were asked to set up Aadhaar facility on their premises, as many as 18,000 centres have come up for enrolment and updation of the biometric ID at such locations, UIDAI CEO Ajay Bhushan Pandey has said.

UIDAI had in July last year asked private as well as public sector banks to set up Aadhaar facility in at least one out of the10 branches.

“Aadhaar centres are being set up in banks and post offices. So far, about 18,000 centres have been set up in their premises and in the remaining places also, centres will be set up,” Pandey said.

The banks were, so far, facing a target of logging 16 daily enrolments or updations in each of these branches.

Overall, about 26,000 centres are slated to come up at banks and post offices.

The ‘Bank Aadhaar Kendras’ are being set up with a view to making the Aadhaar verification process of bank accounts convenientand to ensure that the enrolment takes place in a secure and supervised environment.

About 10,000 branches of private and public sector banks have set up Aadhaar enrolment and updation centres on their premises, and over 13,800 branches need to make this facility available.

“About 8,000 such centres have come up in post offices out of 13,000 that are targeted,” Pandey pointed out.

The UIDAI Chief said that there was nohe timeline for achieving the targets but laid emphasised that the process of establishing the remaining centres is underway.

“The fact is that in the last few months they have set up as many as 18,000 centres…banks and post offices have worked very hard for this.

Offering a major breather to banks about a fortnight back, the UIDAI had reduced by half, the daily minimum Aadhaar enrolment or updation targets.

It said that the bank premises with Aadhaar facility will have to ensure at least eight enrolments or updations in each branch daily from July 1, 2018 – a bar that will be raised to a minimum of 12 transactions per day per branch from October 1, and to 16 from January 1, 2019 onwards.
