20,000 Aadhaar Customer Centres Granted Permission To Update Card Details

New Delhi: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has granted permission to around 20,000 common service centres (CSCs) to update Aadhaar details of citizens.

It’s a conditional approval for the CSCs that are doing banking correspondent activity, reports PTI.

“Only the demographic update facility will be allowed. The authentication of operators and residents shall be done using fingerprint and Iris,” the UIDAI said in a letter to CSC e-Governance Services CEO Dinesh Tyagi.

The system is expected to be ready by the end of June.

IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that he would like the CSC village level entrepreneurs (VLEs) to start the Aadhaar work responsibly, as per UIDAI instructions. “I am sure this facility will help a large number of rural citizens to get Aadhaar services closer to their place of residence,” Prasad said.
