Srinagar: The process for preparation of
Unique Identification `Aadhaar` Cards formally commenced today
with Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra and his wife Usha
Vohra filling up Enrolment Forms and completing other
formalities.

The process for issuance of Unique Identification
`Aadhaar` Card was undertaken by a team of senior officers
headed by Secretary, Information Technology and Science
Technology M K Dwivedi, an official spokesman said.

The Governor emphasised the usefulness of the entire
process being completed within a fixed time schedule so that
people, particularly those in the rural areas, get benefit.

He said coordinated action should be taken to ensure that
the Card becomes useful for delivering benefits under NREGA
and Old Age Pension Scheme among other programmes and also
leads to promoting banking habits among the rural population.

Briefing the Governor, Dwivedi said the project is
likely to be completed in the state in three years.

Chief Minister Omar Abdullah was the first to enrol for
the Unique Identification Number on August 1.
