Aadhaar Acknowledgement that you receive after enrolling yourself for Aadhaar card number looks like image pasted below.
I proudly have one. I visited today the enrolment centre which was NOT near to my residence. This effort proved quite fruitful to me. I got my enrolment done in a matter of few minutes and I received this acknowledge card from authorities over there.
It is one of the best things ever happening to citizens of India who are restricted to their wards, suffering lot of inconvenience in the hands of careless officers who are making enrolment procedure look like a herculean task.
When I first visited enrolment centre near to my residence, I lost all hopes of receiving Aadhaar card ever in my life. Ruthless officer there very bluntly told me that collection of forms is over for the day. Imagine the time ...10 a.m. in morning.
If I were not in touch with the procedure, I would have landed up just cribbing about how inconvenient the process is. I am a housewife, mother of 2 yr son. If somebody tells me to wake up at 4 in the morning, and then line up for enrolling myself ,won’t it will be a cruel joke to me? I really wanted to confront that bullying “officer” over there about feasibility of stupid suggestion he was making to me. But instead of wasting my time and energy, I went to another enrolment centre and got this simple thing done really simply.
Friends, instead of panicking, please keep your eyes and ears open. Read whatever possible about enrolment procedures. I am asserting this because a lot of notorious incidents have happened in last few months in the name of Aadhar card verification, to quote the least, strangers barging in home in the name of aadhar card verification and then robbing the residents. Be aware, and be alert.
Enrolment centres are prevalent throughout India. And you can visit any one of these irrespective of place you belong to. Only few things are required to complete the enrolment procedure and obtaining this acknowledgement. One, a valid proof of identity and address and second,you in person, for recording biometric details of yours like iris scan, finger and thumb prints and your photo which will be clicked at the enrolment centre only.
Active enrolment centres in India till date are listed below:
