Only government staff can verify UID card documents
 

Nagpur: In what is being seen as a major setback to unique identification document (UID) project, the state government has announced that only government staff can verify the documents for a UID card. The decision was taken by the state following a directive from the Centre.

It's no surprise that the rate of issuance of Aadhaar cards is already slow and this move will only end up in further slowing it down. The state has now asked all district administrations to employ retired government staffers to meet the demand. They are required to prepare a list of employees, who can be deployed for the work. In case the officer feels that she/he cannot spare adequate staffers, then she/he should request retired government servants to do the work and pay them an honorarium.

"A large number of employees will be sent on election duty for municipal corporation and zilla parishad. We will not be able to spare staff for UID work and the issuance of cards will get stuck up. Even otherwise, the government is using our employees for some or other drive frequently," a revenue official told.
