Nagpur: Taking a leaf from the union government’s ordinance to make Aadhar Cards must for the children aged from 1 day to 7 years, the Nagpur Municipal Corporation has geared up to channelise its schools to accomplish the task. Regional Deputy Director of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) Dr, BV Jichkar on Tuesday met NMC Deputy Commissioner Ranjana Lade and discussed on doubling up NMC schools as centres to make aadhar cards of students and children as well as the citizens residing in the vicinity.

Talking to Nagpur Today Jichkar informed as per the last census, around 3 lakh citizens have still not got their Aadhar Cards. However the nodal officer for Aadhar Cards is the concerned District Collector but the collector has entrusted this job to deputy collecor Rao. Jichkar has appealed NMC to get the aadhar cards of remaining citizens made at the earliest. NMC has deputed NMC Deputy Commissioner Ranjana Lade for processing the aadhar cards at the earliest.

Lade informed that the Aadhar processing equipments will be taken from schools to schools. About 100 such equipments will be provided by the Central Government for speeding up the process in Nagpur. Besides, Jichkar said that organising more camps to prepare aadhar cards is also on the cards in NMC’s future planning. NMC Education Committee Chief was also prominently present in the meeting.

NMC schools will reopen on November 16 after which a meeting of all the school principals will be called to disseminate information in this regard.

Gopal Bohre informed that priority will be given to the students and children from 0 to 7 years in these camps following which the citizens can also avail the benefit.
