The people of Lalganj town in Uttar Pradesh are facing serious difficulties in Aadhar card enrollment process. The staff members have to work till late night because of heavy crowd at the centres. While people standing for hours in long queues are angry because of their chance coming at night. Enrollment camps have been setup from 11 March to 6 April for thousands of people from 15 wards of the town. People of two wards are being enrolled simultaneously. Each ward has 2000 to 2500 people while only 200 to 250 are enrolled daily for Aadhaar. About minimum of 1 week is required to cover 1 ward while only 1 day has been specified for 1 ward. The crowd gathers from the morning despite the timings being from 9:30 to 5:30 and can be seen even till night. People who came there for enrollment said that only formalities are being done on the name of Aadhaar enrollment. Hundreds of people are being left out of this scheme. People have demanded to provide at least 3 days for a single ward.

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has made Aadhar card compulsory to acquire possession on the plots announced by the authority through a draw process. DDA has made this essential because property dealers are very curious in acquiring these properties.
