Pension and PF through Aadhaar only in entire Madhya Pradesh

After receiving orders from the central government, Madhya Pradesh government made Aadhar card mandatory for pension and PF from January 1 in three districts viz. Khandwa, Harda and Hoshangabad. Soon this scheme will be implemented in the entire state. According to official information EPFO notified thousands of its members from these three districts that soon this scheme will be implemented in the entire state. State government through central government’s order said on Friday that Aadhaar details of all pensioners and members of EPFO will be collected and linked with bank accounts by December 31 of all the 31 districts. Officials have been asked to carry out this process by setting up camps.

UIDAI will setup permanent Aadhaar enrollment centers in the state of Andhra Pradesh within a month time. The official reports have informed that somewhere around 1400 permanent enrollment camps would be setup in all parts of the district. These centers will be in operation along with the existing Mee-Seva centers. IT Department of Andhra Pradesh will operate these camps with the support of central common service centre. Setting up of permanent centers will facilitate people for easily accessing Aadhaar services.

A report published recently in Mid Day revealed that the details collected through Aadhaar enrollment form are being leaked to third-party without knowledge of the enroller. According to the report, a Colaba-based couple got an account opening letter from a bank in the name of their 10-year-old daughter. The welcome letter from the Indian Overseas Bank (IOB) claimed that a Savings Bank (SB) account has been opened in the name of the 10-year-old girl. The family is unaware about this and is shocked about their details reaching to a bank. According to the bank, these details reached to it through central government while UIDAI clarified that nothing is forwarded to any third-party without the knowledge of the enroller.
