To simplify the process, one of the 10 bank branches will now have the Aadhaar registration facility. Unique Identification Indian Authority (UIDAI) has called on private banks and public sector banks to establish an Aadhaar registration system in at least one of the 10 branches in the coming weeks, an official said.
At present, there are 25,000 registration centers active throughout the country, but operating from their own facilities. However, none of these centers is operated at the bank’s premises.
“We called all regular commercial banks – public and private – to establish a registration center and update Aadhaar within bank branches … At least in one of the ten branches in August-end,” said Ajay Pandey Bhushan, CEO of PTI UIDAI.
There are 120,000 bank branches in the country and, for this move, it will establish 12,000 Aadhaar inscription and update centers in these branches, he said.
He added that management would provide a “convenience” to people like Aadhaar is now required to open new bank accounts and existing accounts.
