To help disabled people Aadhaar-compliant, the state government on Thursday launched exclusive Aadhaar enrolment centres at various places across the state.

After inaugurating a model Aadhaar enrolment centre, chief minister Siddaramaiah said 50 per cent of the population in the state have already enrolled their names at such centres and 35 per cent of them have been issued Aadhaar cards.

“More Aadhaar centres will be opened at various places across the state to enable the people enroll their names. So far, 10 lakh beneficiaries who have Aadhaar cards have availed of the direct benefit transfer (DBT) facility,’’ the chief minister said.

Apart from setting up model Aadhaar enrolment centres, the state government has also made arrangements for setting up appointment-based enrolment centres and call centres for providing information on enrolment centres and the process, launch of e-Aadhaar services through Bangalore One centres and Karnataka One centres, and the launch of a special enrolment drive for disadvantaged and vulnerable sections of society.

“Now, we are focusing on vulnerable sections of society. Separate counters will be set up for pregnant women, the physically-challenged, transgenders, and senior citizens. Those who have already enrolled their names can check the status of their Aadhaar card at Bangalore One centres,’’ said DS Ravindran, chief executive officer, Centre for e-Governance.
