Aadhaar Amendment Centre demands to reopen of grants.

Almost every Indian has an Aadhaar card today. However, not all Aadhaar cards have current and correct information. For the system to be efficient, it is important for Indian citizens to be able to update their Aadhaar card details and make corrections if needed. Recognizing this need, the district administration appealed to the Department of Rural Development and Panchayat Raj to reopen Aadhaar correctional centers in village panchayats. However, there has been no response as of yet.

What is the Aadhaar Card?

The Aadhaar card is meant to be a unique identification card that captures essential information like an individual’s name, address, phone number, biometrics, photograph, etc. Introduced in January 2009, today, Aadhaar authentication eKYC is a necessary document for many instances. This includes admission to schools and colleges, applying for a passport, opening new bank accounts, etc.

Why are changes needed?

There are many instances wherein people have been issued Aadhaar cards with the wrong address or photograph. In other cases, people have changed addresses and their Aadhaar cards still reflect the old address. Similarly, people who were issued as Aadhaar card when they were unmarried need to change their marital status after marriage. The most common changes needed are for a change in name, address, and date of birth.

Current Status of Aadhaar Correctional Centers

In 2018, an Aadhaar Correctional Center was inaugurated in Bashetilli, Palliyaballapur Taluk. 1000 more such centers were planned across villages in Karnataka. These centers were modeled on the Bangalore One center. However, the centers remained dysfunctional for over a year. Aadhaar Registration Centers in certain government offices such as Nadakacharyi have closed been closed.
As a result, the number of centers available for registration and amendments has been limited. Hundreds of people arrive at the district offices on a daily basis and wait for a chance for Aadhaar eKYC. However, only 30-35 people are allowed to do so each day.


After studying the rush of people at these offices, in March, the government proposed reopening Aadhaar correctional centers. The Aadhaar correctional centers functioned between September 2018 to February 2019 when the Aadhaar Amendment was blocked by the UIDAI. This was done after the district reached a target of 100% Aadhaar enrollment. It was also done in response to fake Aadhaar cards that became commonly available.

The Kswan-2 Network

One of the issues the Aadhaar Correctional Centers face is outdated computers and server issues. These computers are unable to work with the Java software. To resolve it, the government has decided to create a Kswan-2 network.
