Doctor’s Certificate And Aadhaar Mandatory For Emergency Travel During Lockdown

Corona is devastating India and the rest of the world and the situation is getting worst day by day. The government and the people are helpless. There is a situation of emergency in the country. Hospital beds, ventilators, vaccines & oxygen cylinders are severely short. In the current scenario, only lockdown or curfew is the best solution to curtail the spread of the coronavirus.

Every day, new variants and mutations of the virus are hitting the population. So, this is not possible to find out the right medicine for new variants and mutations. As a result, the spread is growing exponentially. In most parts of the country, lockdown is in progress and people are directed to stay at home to stay safe. Traveling is also prohibited to discourage the physical meeting of the people. However, the Government does understand the problems of people who need to travel due to an emergency. In this case, people can apply for an ePass using the online web portal. You are required to submit supporting documents along with your application.

People are complaining about the rejection of their applications concerning ePass due to inadequate documents. The reason behind this is that you failed to submit a passport size photo, vehicle’s RC book, Aadhaar card, driving license, and doctor’s certificate. You can judge the importance of the Aadhaar card from the above lines. You must have an Aadhaar card otherwise you cannot apply for an ePass.

Aadhar is a 12-digit document. It is a unique number. It is used as an identifier. It is proof of your identity & address across Baharat. UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) is the body that is responsible to issue Aadhar. It regulates the entire process of enrollment. To do the enrollment of people, thousands of Aadhaar centers have been set up in various parts of the country.

We have seen in the last decade that a large population of the country has been brought into the UIDAI system. Any person who is residing in India for more than 182 days or more can obtain an Aadhar card. Non-Resident Indians are not entitled to obtain an Aadhaar card. The reason is that they do not live inside the country for at least 182 days. Being an India, you can obtain Aadhar by visiting any Aadhar enrollment center. Necessary documents such as PAN, Passport and ration card, etc. are required in order to be accepted without any delay or issues. It will take around 90 days to get an Aadhaar card from the date of application to your registered address. There is no fee payable at the enrollment stage.

The government of India wants to enroll all the residents of India. That is why there are no fees. Under the current Covid-19 scenario, the need for Aadhaar is very important. 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.
