Residents can visit these Aadhaar Seva Kendras (ASKs) for Aadhaar enrolment and updation services like change in address and corrections.
UIDAI plans to operate 166 ASKs in 122 cities throughout India. So far the establishment of 58 ASKs has been completed and they have started functioning, UIDAI CEO Saurav Garg said at the launch of an ASK in Ghaziabad.
“All the ASKs are air-conditioned, designed with adequate seating capacity and also divyang-friendly,” he added.
Minister of State for Electronics and IT Rajeev Chandrasekhar and Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways and Civil Aviation V K Singh jointly inaugurated the 5th ASK in Uttar Pradesh at Ghaziabad on Sunday, an official statement said.
The ASK has a capacity to handle requests from 1,000 residents per day.
Chandrasekhar said the use of Aadhaar for direct benefit transfer schemes has led to saving of Rs 1.78 lakh crore of public money.
