Discrepancy in Aadhaar card generation in Kerala

By : |May 14, 2013 0

KOCHI, INDIA: Official at Kerala’s Akshaya centres have reported that there is a remarkable discrepancy between the number of Aadhaar cards generated through the Akshaya State office and the actual figures sent by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).

Akshaya is an innovative project implemented in Kerala that looks after the generation of Aadhaar cards and other e-district activities.

In October 2012, Akshaya Centres in Kerala generated 5,12,977 cards, as per a PDF file in the UIDAI site. On the contrary, the state Akshaya office says that the Bangalore Data Centre (BDC) of the UIDAI, has sent them the figure of 3,02,596 for the total number of cards generated in the state.

“Only the UIDAI knows about this difference. We have written to BDC officials about the discrepancy. But, ultimately the figures will be tallied in the coming months. We are receiving money for the generated cards as per the UIDAI data. From this amount, money is allotted to the concerned Akshaya entrepreneurs, as per the BDC figures,” a New Indian Express report quoted an official at Akshaya, as saying.
