Pune, 14th July 2023: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has suspended the Aadhaar licenses of 96 center operators in Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad, and other rural areas due to their failure to strictly adhere to UIDAI’s instructions. These operators were provided with online training and underwent an examination, of which 82 central operators successfully passed.

However, UIDAI has not granted permission to these 82 operators to resume Aadhaar-related services, resulting in the continued closure of 96 Aadhaar centers in the city and district.

Aadhaar numbers have become essential for accessing various central and state government schemes, including educational institutions, healthcare facilities, banking services, employment opportunities, and business transactions. Whenever there is a need for updating or registering a new Aadhaar, operators are expected to collect and upload the required documents into the UIDAI computer system. The 96 Aadhaar centers in Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad, and rural areas have repeatedly failed to comply with UIDAI’s instructions, leading to the temporary suspension of their licenses.

District administration provided training to the concerned machine operators, and an online test was conducted, with 82 operators passing the examination. However, despite efforts to reinstate these operators by corresponding with UIDAI, they have not been reinstated yet, resulting in the closure of the affected centers.

Furthermore, 86 center operators from the district have successfully completed UIDAI’s training course, and a proposal was submitted to UIDAI in June for their reinstatement. However, the district administration is awaiting an official order from UIDAI. In the meantime, the closure of 96 Aadhaar centers in both urban and rural areas persists. The district administration is actively engaging with UIDAI through additional letters to expedite the reopening of these centers.

Jyoti Kadam, Resident Deputy Collector, emphasized the administration’s efforts to resume operations at the closed centers promptly.
