The Post Offices To Resume Work After Covid-19 Suspension

Corona affected every part of our life. Still, the pandemic is destroying our lives very badly. Millions of people have died due to this epidemic disease. The whole world is still finding ways to control this pandemic. But the situation seems to be uncontrollable. In various parts of the world, covid vaccines are being given to doctors, para-medical staff, and senior citizens, that is the reason, various tasks are being resumed. Apart from this, the start of summer also reduces the growth of coronavirus. Keeping in view these issues in mind, the post offices all over India are going to resume work related to Aadhar.

India is one of the biggest countries with respect to population. The management of the huge population is not an easy task. That is why the Government of India established the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) around a decade ago. Since then, UIDAI is working rigorously towards the attainment of its objective to provide hassle-free enrollment services to the residents of India. In order to perform the enrollment centers, Aadhar centers were established in both the public and private sectors. So that the enrollment process can be done with ease and avoid a public rush. Post offices are owned by Government and in order to facilitate the general public. For this purpose, Government uses post offices as Aadhar enrollment center.

In India, there are 373 designated branches of post offices. These branches were specifically set up to deliver Aadhar related services to residents of India such as enrollment and update. These Aadhar related operations were suspended due to covid-19 and lockdown orders from Government officials for the past several months.

Special camps have been set up in these 373 post offices to facilitate the enrollment process. These camps will operate from 8 am to 8 pm and tokens can be obtained from the post offices accordingly.

The post-office-based Aadhar center will charge Rs 50 for demographic changes such as name, address, mobile number, and date of birth. On the other hand, biometric updates will cost Rs 100. The children’s enrollment process is a little bit different than adults. For this purpose, parents have to submit their own Aadhar card, ration card, voter id, or passbook. One of the parents must be present with the child in order to successfully complete the enrollment process.

Please note that UIDAI has made the enrollment &updation process easy for everyone. Supporting documents are not required for every process or task. If you are going to change your name and address, then you must have to submit supporting documents. However, changes in details such as the mobile number and email address have nothing to do with supporting documents. Neither these are found on supporting documents, so UIDAI does not ask for any sort of documents for mobile number and email address updates.
