Pune: As the deadline to link Aadhaar to various government and non-government services is approaching closer, officials of the district administration are providing training to officials of different banks to increase the number of Aadhaar enrolment centres in the district. 

Currently, around 196 Aadhaar centres are operational in the city and the number is set to increase once these banks start providing facilities of Aadhaar enrollment. 

Officials of the district administration department had expected to start the service soon, but they are finding it difficult to train bank officials to operate the entire process of enrolment. An official from the district administration department said that the process of enrolment requires hardware and access to software by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). “We were expected to start the enrolment process soon in various banks but the process is taking time,” said the official. 

UCL machines not to be used
† UIDAI has asked district administration department to halt the use of UCL (Update Client Life) machines for update of Aadhaar information until further notice. The administration had recently started updating Aadhaar details of people using UCL machines. 
† District Collector Saurabh Rao had requested for access to 50 UCL machines from UIDAI to update Aadhaar information. Rao had earlier said that nearly 70 per cent of people reaching the Aadhaar centre are coming to update Aadhar information.
† “Nearly 5 per cent people in Pune district are without Aadhaar cards and so, fresh applicants should get preference, rather than the ones coming for update of Aadhar information and so, UCL machines were brought into the picture. UIDAI has asked us to stop the process of updating Aadhar information through UCL due to some software issue,” added an official from district administration department.
