"For this purpose, around 350 machines had been deployed at various locations in all the districts of the state. The department had contracted the work to the Electronic Corporation of India limited, a public sector undertaking of the Government of India," he said.

In order to universalise the Aadhaar in the state, he said the UIDAI has appointed Project Director Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), and Mission Director Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) as Registrars for Aadhar enrolment in the schools and Anganwadi centres respectively.

While reviewing the position, Chief Secretary directed that the Aadhar enrolment of Aanganwari beneficiaries (age 0- 5), and school students (age 6-18), be done on priority and special emphasis be accorded to the enrolment of the girl child.
