20 lakh people from Telangana, AP change Aadhar card address
Deccan Chronicle, U Sudhakar Reddy, June 23, 2016
Hyderabad: At least 12 lakh people in Andhra Pradesh and 8 lakh in Telangana have applied and got their addresses changed in their Aadhar database over the past two years. Change of address and in other particulars like marital status is crucial as they are linked with land ownership data, property tax details and gas subsidy Aadhar cards are must for government schemes, to avail bank loans and verification linked to them.
Any discrepancies in Aadhar data will curtail public from availing services since banks also cross check data provided for opening bank account. Customers fill up KYC form and as well as loan sanctions form with Unique Identification Authority of India authorities.
Mr M V S Rami Reddy said, “We have reached saturation in issuing Aadhars in AP with 97 per cent and 100 per cent in Telangana. However our permanent enrolment centres are working for any one approaches for new enrolment or changes in existing Aaadhar data. There are several lakhs of change of address coming to us over past few years.”
He added, “Banks also started asking for Aadhar authentication for KYC data and during sanction of loans.” State of AP and TS are using Aadhar data numbering around 5 crore times a month to cross check validity of beneficiaries of various schemes.
He said that for address or any other changes required documents have to be uploaded online or may be submitted at enrolment centres.
