Aadhaar enrollment has become a tough task for the residents of Ludhiana, Punjab. People stand in queues from 4 O’clock in the morning but still have to return empty handed from Aadhar card enrollment centre. Peoples’ patience gave up on Tuesday day when police had to interrupt to calm down the angry people. According to information, people reached 6 O’clock in the morning on Tuesday at the BDPO office Aadhaar enrollment camp of Jagraon. A person already present there asked them to go back as only 70 Aadhar card would be made and that much form have been received. They were also asked to come on another day for their Aadhar card enrollment.
People at this got furious and asked that man angrily who he was to receive Aadhaar enrollment form while the office was locked? Three people of a village said that they and dozens of their colleagues had returned on three days without the enrollment. They arrived that day also at 5 am but that man was already there with 70 enrollment forms while the enrollment process begins from 9 O’clock. When the staff members arrived then argument began between them and those people. Police was then informed immediately and the work could be resumed only after their arrival. A staff member Parminder Singh said that only 70 enrollments were possible a day and whoever comes first was also enrolled first. Those people who have already enrolled for Aadhar card can check their Aadhar Card Status online by using the details printed on their acknowledgement slip.
