Subject: Leveraging Aadhaar for improving the services of EPFO – regarding.
This ¡s in reference to Head Office letter No. RI(UID/2010/300351 dated 21.01.2013 on the subject cited above. The issue of expeditious enrolment of the EPF members was discussed with UIDAI Officials. ¡t has emerged that UIDA1 through its registrars has been organising enrollment camps in 18 states only. Register General of India (RGI) has been collecting data in respect of the remaining states through National Population Register (NPR). While the data collected by RGI is also being processed for issue of Aadhaar numbers by UIDAI, the methodology used by RGI for setting up enrolment camps is different i.e. it is being done on the basis of house-to-house data collected by enumerators during Census Operations 2011, unlike UIDAI camps, where any resident, Irrespective of the place of residence, can get himself enrolled for Aadhaar number. This enrolment may take considerable time.
