ACRs to be assessed on Aadhar capturing: DC Lohit

TEZU, Mar 20: Taking strong cognizance of the dismal performance of Aadhar seeding with bank accounts in the district, DC Danish Ashraf said that annual appraisal of respective HoDs would be based on Aadhar capturing of their beneficiaries.
He said this during a meeting held at Tezu with various department heads to chalk out a constructive plan for full coverage of flagship central schemes.
Upon receiving reports that Aadhar operators were facing insurmountable problems due to meager emoluments and constant power failures, DC Ashraf announced that the district administration would bear all the cost for lodging during their stay here. However, he asked the DSO cum nodal officer T Manlong to ensure that not a single rupee was collected from the public for processing fee.
Aadhar capturing and seeding with bank accounts has been made mandatory to avail schemes in all social welfare related departments. Various schemes under Education (Stipend, Sanitary Napkin Scheme), ICDS (IGNDPS, IGNOAPS, IGNWPS), Food & Civil Supply (PHH) and DRDA (MGNREGA, PMGSY) to name a few, already require Aadhar seeding of the beneficiaries.
In the meeting, various problems faced by the DDSE, CDPO, DFCSO, DD ICDS, PD DRDA, CO Sunpura in implementing 100 percent Aadhar seeding were discussed.
The issue of floating population, mainly consisting of seasonal labourers, which constantly led to fluctuation in data coverage, was also deliberated upon. While saying that any illegal entry must be curbed, the DC also stressed that access to food was a pivotal human right. He directed DFCSO S Chakravarthy to ensure that even the poorest of the poor had access to subsidized basic commodities.
The DC also asked Lead Bank Manager P K Bakshi to submit details of bank accounts with Aadhar seeding and directed him to ensure complete support for the same.
Making special concession for senior citizens who did not have proper birth certificates and therefore faced importune delay; it was decided to instead provide them with adhoc certificates signed by an authorized medical practitioner.
To facilitate people in far off areas without banking facilities, the meeting concurred to send ‘Bank Mitras’ to speed up the linking process. The HoDs present were also directed to obtain an undertaking from their concerned staffs overlooking Aadhar seeding to ensure cent percent coverage and if not, the reasons behind it by April 1 next.
The DC said that Aadhar linking for all flagship programmes must be completed within March 31, otherwise the names of the beneficiaries stood to be cut from respective lists. He also directed the HoDs, BDOs, ZPMs and other PRI leaders to publicize this decision widely for a stipulated period, within which, any objection for any incorrect or wrong Aadhar entry could be raised.
The meeting was also attended by SDO (S) cum overall in-charge Gautom Hazarika, DDSE Mana Linggi, DD ICDS T Amo Perying, CO Sunpura S Bellai, CO (Dev) Une Pertin, CDPO S Chai, PD DRDA Tuli Gangkak and GHSS Principal E Lego. (DIPRO)
