The average time for completing the Aadhaar formalities for a resident at the enrolment centre is 20-30mts. An enrolment operator ideally can cater to 25-30 residents in day. Hence, the introduction of prior appointment is a very good initiative.
The major challenge will be for the resident to reach the enrolment centre at the appointed time. As readers are aware, it is a practice for us Indians to reach any meeting only after the scheduled time. Keeping this in view, the online booking of Appointment for Aadhaar Enrollments has been started on a trial basis at selected Enrollment Centers
The trial basis covers the states of Andhra Pradesh, Chandigarh, Delhi, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Pudcherry, Punjab, and Rajasthan. The appointment taking process is fairly simple.
At present there are 30,000 enrolment centres spread across India and depending on the response, the number of enrolment centres offering appointments will be increased or decreased.
