Have you enrolled for AADHAAR card ?

Surprisingly there isn't any notice be it in news papers or in local media about the enrollment for AADHAAR card in Bangalore. Yes Government of India started enrolling people in Bangalore. Got to know from one of my friend and was surprised by not having heard about it in the media.

All you have to do is go to the below address


Karvy Data Management Services,
"Skanda" No 59, Putana Road,
Basavanagudi,
Bangalore - 560 004.
Phone : 080 - 26621192/93

Ask for the UID form with the security guy outside office, its just one page form takes hardly couple of minutes to fill it. The security guy gives you a serial number and lets you in when your turn comes. The process takes hardly 10 mins but you gotta wait for at least an hour (may be few hours once the public announcement is done). So hurry up, go get enroll yourself. Office opens @ 0930 hrs and closes @ 1730 hrs.

And yeah dont forget to take photo copies of your age and address proof. For more information on what kind of proof is accepted go visit http://uidai.gov.in/

I was pretty impressed by the process, they let me sit next to them while entering details and did ask me to verify if all the details are correct at least thrice. And they are really fast in entering details unlike other government enrollments I have experienced so far. Once they capture the biometrics they gave me acknowledgment copy and seems they will take around 60 days for processing which include verification of details given and if all goes well they will dispatch card to your address (given in the form).

Only think I noticed bit weird was, there is a column in the form asking if I was ok to link my bank account with my AADHAAR card and I have given my consent for the same. I didn't check that option at all, but the data entry person took her liberty to tick it (I mean she gave a consent on behalf of me) but I wonder how with out giving my bank account details :P

Any ways hope it will be of some use and people wont ruin the process by registering multiple times and what not.

I dont see much info on bank account declaration.

Whats that? and do we have to have only one bank account after this?

Please share ur thoughts...

@Raghunandan, the form has just one section asking for bank account number and consent to link that account with the aadhaar card, I didn't fill any of them and I dont think its mandatory to fill as well. Because its not mandatory I dont think one need to worry about it.

@Stevie its in south bangalore, the best landmark would be DVG Road, Gandhi bazaar. Once you go to DVG road ask any shopkeeper you will get directions to Karvy office.

Aadhaar project is a waste of public money. Ministers are fighting over it. Parliament has not yet finished discussions. Why at all would you need it. Anyhow once BJP comes to power in 2014 it will scrap the project.

@mukesh you are right, there is no guarantee if this project will be successful or not. Even before this project is given a fair time and chance parliamentarians are debating about it to scrap it. But just hope for best and appreciate all the efforts that are being made by Mr. Nandans team will not be a waste.

BTW I wrote this post much before any of these debates started in parliament.
