Aadhar is a 12-digit unique identifier that is proof of your identity & address. UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) is the body that regulates the entire system of enrollment. The enrollment process is done via thousands of Aadhaar centers set up in various parts of the country. Within a decade, a large population of the country has been enrolled in the UIDAI database. Any person who is living in India for more than 182 days or more can obtain Aadhar.
Aadhaar Act clearly disqualifies NRI (Non-Resident Indian) to obtain an Aadhaar card as they do not live inside the country for at least 182 days. In order to obtain Aadhar, you can visit any Aadhar enrollment center. Supporting documents are very crucial if you want your Aadhaar application to be accepted without any issues. It will take around 90 days from the date of application to get your Aadhaar card at your registered address.
The enrollment fee is zero as the Government wants to enroll as many people as possible to make its population statistics up to date. There are two important pieces of information that are saved during the Aadhaar enrollment process. One is demographic details while the other is biometric details.
Poverty is the main problem of developing countries. India is not the exception. The majority of the population in the country is surfing life below the poverty line. This is why Pune Government has offered fantastic relief for the rickshaw drivers. Pune is a city located in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. It has great importance and geographic location.
In the British era, it was the center of all the politics in undivided hind. In a respected society, the poor are given special attention & relief. Similar is the case with Pune where the Government is offering a state relief scheme. Under this scheme, the target audience is auto-rickshaw drivers. As the situation of rickshaw drivers is very severe and they are in financial crisis badly.
The Pune government is giving them each auto-rickshaw driver 1500/- rupees per month. But in order to obtain the relief, one must have an Aadhaar number and that must be linked to his or her bank account. Otherwise, rickshaw drivers will not be able to claim the benefit. Currently, there are 7.15 lakh rickshaw permit holders in Pune state. So, it means that it would be around Rs. 107 crore Indian rupees each month that would be distributed.
Auto-rickshaw drivers are waiting for the launch of the registration system at transport.maharashtra.gov.in so that they can upload their details and start receiving the state relief benefits. If you do not have an Aadhaar card, it is time to apply in any Aadhaar Kendra to get Aadhaar. However, if you already have Aadhaar, you will have to map it with your bank account. You can consult your bank branch as to how you can link your Aadhaar with your bank account.
