TEZU, Mar 20: Taking strong cognizance of the dismal performance of Aadhar seeding with bank accounts in the district, DC Danish Ashraf today held a meeting with various department heads to chalk out a constructive plan. Saying that full coverage of flagship central schemes was a must, he pointedly told that annual appraisal of respective HoDs would be based on Aadhar capturing of their beneficiaries.


Upon receiving reports that Aadhar operators were facing insurmountable problems due to meagre emoluments and constant power failures, Ashraf announced that the district administration would bear all the cost for lodging during their stay here. However, he asked the DSO cum nodal officer T Manlong to ensure that not a single rupee was collected from the public for processing fee.


It is pertinent to mention here that Aadhar capturing and seeding with bank accounts has been made mandatory to avail schemes in all social welfare related departments.

The issue of floating population (mainly consisting of seasonal labourers) which constantly led to fluctuation in data coverage was deliberated upon.

While saying that any illegal entry must be curbed, Ashraf also stressed that access to food was a pivotal human right. He directed the DFCSO to ensure that even the poorest of the poor had access to subsidized basic commodities. The DC also asked the Lead Bank Manager to submit details of bank accounts with Aadhar seeding and directed him to ensure complete support for the same.

Making special concession for senior citizens who did not have proper birth certificates and therefore faced importune delay; it was decided to instead provide them with ad hoc certificates signed by an authorized medical practitioner. Further, to facilitate people in far off areas without banking facilities the meeting concurred to send Bank Mitras to speed up the linking process. The HoDs present were also directed to obtain an undertaking from their concerned staff overlooking Aadhar seeding to ensure cent percent coverage and if not the reasons behind it by 1stApril.

The DC said that Aadhar linking for all flagship programmes must be completed within 31st March otherwise the name of the beneficiaries stood to be cut from respective lists. He also directed the HoDs, BDOs, ZPMs and other PRI leaders to publicise this decision widely for a stipulated period within which any objection for any incorrect or wrong Aadhar entry could be raised.
