Bank Account Opening Gets Easy With Aadhaar

Aadhaar card is a unique identification number that contains 12 digits and it is issued by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India). The residents of India can easily get themselves registered to get their Aadhaar card. The Aadhaar card plays an important role in various stages. It is an important document that is used as identity proof in India. The Aadhaar was first time issued on 28 January 2009. For the first-time enrollment, the person does not have to pay anything as it will be a voluntary service or we can say that it is a gift from the Government to their residents. There is no expiry date of the Aadhaar card as it comes with lifetime validity. There are two reasons behind the issuing of Aadhaar. One is Identification and the other is Direct benefits transfer.

Previously many orders have been passed concerning Aadhaar. Currently, Government has taken a great step that residents can easily open their bank account using Aadhaar. Those people who get their transfers and migrates from one place to another, again and again, can now avail the facility to open the bank account by allowing them to use a self-declared location as a proof of residence if it varies from the address specified in their Aadhaar card.

The person who migrates from one place to another faces a lot of problems because the address which is stated on the Aadhaar is different from their current living residential address. On Thursday, the Revenue Department had passed a notification concerning the matter by saying that the KYC of Aadhaar can be used to open a bank account and it will be more convenient for those people who travel and migrate from place to place for their job purpose or for some other reasons. On Wednesday one more notification from the gazette stated that these changes have been made for the purpose to prevent the crimes like smuggling and money laundering.

This alteration has been launched to enable the bank account opening by using KYC Aadhaar so the person who wants to mention the different address from the address in Aadhaar as their current residence address on the basis of their self-described.

Ajay Bhushan Pandey, the Secretary of the Revenue department passed his remarks by saying that the amended PMLR only applies to Aadhaar-based bank account opening and Aadhaar-based address changes. If a person moves for work and needs to use Aadhaar KYC to open a new bank account or change his bank branch, for example, he can self-declare his new address while holding his original address on the Aadhaar card.

The Government hopes that this procedure will play an important role and it will be effective in its way. This will be very convenient for people and especially for the people who travel or migrates from one place to another for the purpose of their jobs or for some other reasons. This will also play an important role to prevent major crimes like Money-laundering and so on.

Aadhaar Based Learning License Test In Maharashtra

A notification has been passed by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) that now the residents can easily avail themselves various facilities via online mode through their Aadhaar confirmation. The services include the Certificate of Registration and driving license. This facility is a huge opportunity because now the residents do not have to pay a visit to the Regional Transport Office (RTO) again and again for the service such as the registration of the vehicle, driver license renewal, learner’s permit, duplicate RC and much more. A piece of news has been reported by the time of India TOI, that the state Government of Maharashtra is planning to give permission to the aspirates that they can give their learner license exam from their home via online mode.

And if the individual passes the test, a license will be received through online mode which can be downloaded later.

People should keep in mind that If the learner license test is eliminated, there will be too much difficulty in obtaining a permanent license. It is also reported that from now onwards, the people also have to provide their Aadhaar copy along with other documents for the submission so that number will be linked. Learner’s exams should not be scrapped indefinitely, say transportation and traffic advocates. Driving tests are different than other types of tests due to nature. The overall purpose is to ensure that a person who obtains a practicing license equips with the qualities necessary to make him or her a safe driver.

The learner’s test is necessary to ensure that the applicant has a sufficient understanding of the rules and regulations, as well as the documentation that must be carried when driving or riding a two-wheeler. On the other hand, the driving test assesses on-road abilities, including vehicle control and healthy driving habits. The government wants to simplify the process and make these facilities fully hassle-free and available to Indian people. The ministry of transportation currently provides about 18 contactless services. The new methodology will reduce the issues of enforcement commonly seen in the general public. This will also impact foot traffic issues and accidents in the future to come.

In the 2024 Lok Sabha Election, franchisees will be able to exercise their rights from a remote area, with the first pilot project expected to begin in the next 2-3 months. This facility will help many of the residents to cast their votes by the remote voting facility.

In an interview, which was taken by the time of India, Arora said regarding the remote voting system, that the European Commission’s had done a lot of promotion on bigger incorporation so that in an election no one will be left to cast their vote. As nowadays, technology has been updated a lot.

The European Commission (EC) began a research project early this year to allow remote voting for those who are not able to cast their vote on the election day such as students, patients, professionals, migrant workers, and critical service providers, using technology as a great enabler. It’s important to note that the project isn’t aimed at internet voting, nor does it enable people to vote from their homes. Transparency and secrecy of voting are also driving factors for the commission,” he said, adding that before the facility is rolled out, there will be process improvements and broader discussions with all stakeholders, including political parties.

Supreme Court Questions Cancellation Of 3 Crore Ration Cards

The bench informed Gonsalves that he had requested a broad type of relief and had broadened the scope of the case.

Gonsalves continued in his claim that it is a critical issue, citing the fact that the government has revoked approximately three crore ration cards.
