Only 32-35% registration in Phase I in Pune dist. In Phase II, UID aims for at least 80% registrations
After the state government decided that driving licences should carry Aadhar UID numbers and schools seeking government aid should have UID card, officials expect that Phase II of the drive will generate more response as it proceeds. The second phase took off in May this year. After the first phase that ended in February, there was a break because
the agencies conducting the drive were changed.
For Pune district, which saw 32-35 per cent registration in Phase I, officials are striving hard to reach out to societies, corporates and factories in the second phase. UID officials said the second phase aims for at least 80 per cent registrations by March 2013.
"The new set of rules for licences and for schools will see more participation and ensure better reach,'' said an UID official. In the first phase, 12.4 lakh got enrolled in rural parts while for PMC and PCMC they were 11.03 lakh and 4.78 lakh respectively.
The response in the second phase has not been good till now, said an official. "Only 24,000 names were registered in rural areas while for PMC and PCMC the numbers were 18,000 and 20,000 respectively. We are trying to reach out to more societies, industrial establishments and factories in the district," said the official. With the YASHADA being appointed as monitoring agency for enrollment in the new phase, it is set to streamline the system, said the official.
With the state government announcing Aadhar UID numbers on licences, now the number of registrations will increase, said an official. The State Transport Authority is in talks with the Central government to make the required amendment in the rules. State Transport Commissioner V N More said the amendment in the rules will be according to the format prescribed in the Central Motor Vehicle Rules. "We are in touch with the government of India. After making the amendment, the draft will be published, followed by call for suggestions and objections.
