The authorities associated with Aadhar documentation have failed to adhere to deadlines of its issuance as residents of Jammu and Kashmir have to wait for months to obtain it.
The main reason for the delay in its implementation lies with the group of people who were tasked to do so and have only consumed a lot of time in generating it.
Journalist ImdadSaqi, like his fellow citizens lined up for hours together to fulfil the requirements at the first instance. His mother was lucky to receive the document out of five-member family. He and three members of his family did not received the document even after making three attempts. He made frequent inquiries and when a lot of time was wasted in the process, he and other left out persons were called for fresh exercise. However, this time also, they were unlucky as the technical hitch again came in the way. I have visited the centre for this facility for the third time last month but this time also the excuse of technical fault was forwarded. For the last three months, we have not been able to get ration as the depot supervisor is demanding Aadhar, he said adding there is demand from BSNL and private cellular companies for presenting Aadhar. Banks are also pressing for this document , he said adding the banks have made it clear that the accounts will be closed if Aadhar are not presented. He is worried as to how to get the document now ?
Similar is the case with number of families in Dilsoz Colon y Natipora, where one family member got the document while rest are going from pillar to post to get the one.
Ghulam Mohammad Malik, a resident of Dilsoz colony, told Kashmir wire that he closed his shop and brought all his sons and daughters from their offices for preparing the aadhar, when the party visited our locality two years ago for the first time. One of my son received aadhar but rest of the family members including him are without adhar.
Another person from the locality, Abdul Rashid, said he provided a full set of his house to the visiting team to prepare aadhar to all the families of the area. However, the p arty proved a disastrous as no one received the document as they had not generated a receipt which could have enabled people to search for the documents in the internet themselves.
"I am going from pillar to post to obtain the document but in vain," Abdul Rashid said. He says he visited Chhanpora Marriage hall for making a fresh attempt to get the document but was given a date of March next year (2018) for visiting the bureau for preparing while the extended date is expiring in December 2017.
"I do not know what to do now as banks are pressing for this document to enable me to withdraw money. I am yet to receive this month's ration for want of Aadhar," he said.
A government servant, Fayaz Ahmad, said it is the government responsibility to provide the document., as it is the government which has ordered for this . It is not possible for any person to make it on its own and present it to the departments which demand these documents.
