Aadhaar For Divyangjan: Biometric identification is necessary to get Aadhaar and for this it is mandatory for Indian citizens to give iris and finger and thumb impressions. Without these, no person's base can be formed. However, have you ever noticed that if a person is without hands, or a disabled person does not have hands or fingers, then how will he be able to get Aadhaar made? A similar case came to light from Kerala. The good news is that for this, UIDAI, the Aadhaar issuing body, made special arrangements and ensured that such a person can also get an Aadhaar card.
Special case surfaced from Kerala
In the case that came to light in Kerala, a woman was unable to enroll for Aadhaar because she did not have fingers. In view of this, Union Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and Electronics and IT and Jal Shakti, Rajiv Chandrashekhar gave special instructions. UIDAI was ordered to take immediate steps to enroll this woman. In this context, Cabinet Minister Rajeev Chandrashekhar also said that an advisory has been issued to all Aadhaar service centers for optional biometrics, through which Aadhaar enrollment agencies have been sensitized.
UIDAI team took immediate steps
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) swung into action the day it received the instructions from the Cabinet Minister. A team of UIDAI went to the house of Josimol P Jose in Kumarakam, Kottayam, Kerala and prepared his Aadhaar number. Her mother thanked the authorities for their support and assistance and said that with the help of Aadhaar, her daughter will now be able to easily avail many benefits and services including social security pension and Kaivalya, the rehabilitation scheme for the disabled.
