In a bid similar to Delhi government, the state government of Jharkhand has also decided to make Aadhar card mandatory for marriage registry purpose. Besides marriage registration, the state government has also made Aadhar card mandatory for property registration as well. The registry department has also been directed by the government about these changes in the present system. Under this new scheme not only the buyer and seller of the property but also the witnesses have to produce their Aadhaar details in order to complete the registration process. Since still a large section of people in the state have not got their Aadhaar numbers, this implementation will be effective from January 1 next year at any cost. If one has got Aadhar card but is denying of having it then it will be considered an offence by him and provision of FIR is also applicable under such condition.
Besides marriage and property registration, Aadhar card will also be mandatory for those students who wish to take advantages of pre-matric and post-matric scholarship programs in Jharkhand. This decision was taken during a review meeting of E-Kalyan Yojana last week. The bank accounts of the students will be linked with their Aadhaar numbers and the funds of the scheme will be transferred directly into the student’s bank account making the whole process transparent and fast.
The continuous oppose to Aadhaar from the students of JNU has finally started to weaken as a new circular was issued in the campus asking students to enroll for Aadhaar in order to get scholarship benefits. The circular was anticipated much earlier because of the move of UGC to link Aadhaar with the scholarship programs. Student’s Union at the JNU is still not in favour of such type of implementation attributing to useless fatigue to the students. The students at the campus have not been in with the idea of Aadhaar since the very beginning but now they are compelled to enroll for UID number in order to obtain their scholarship amounts.
