New Delhi: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has asked all the states to ensure that till September 2017 this year, all the base centers or enrollment centers from outside should be transferred to government occupied campus. These include the centers operated by private agencies.

This move will affect 25,000 active centers across the country. This will allow these centers to be directly monitored by the authorities. Under the new arrangement, private operators will not be able to charge more for the updates of the nomination or details as the government will be able to monitor them closely.

Ajay Bhushan Pandey, Chief Executive Officer of UIDAI, has written letters to the states and asked for identification of centers in government premises by July 31 for enrollment and updated activities.

UIDAI has said that the process of transferring nomination operations to such centers will be completed by August 31, 2017. Confirming this, Pandey said that the nomination centers will be shifted from private places to government premises such as District Collectorate, District Council Office or Corporation offices. Apart from this, the centers will be shifted to banks, block offices, taluk offices or other state-run supply centers.
