The Meghalaya Peoples’ Committee on Aadhaar (MPCA) has taken a step forward to facilitate people who want to opt out of Aadhaar enrollment following the recent ruling passed by the Supreme Court.
A decision in this regard was taken at a public meeting held at the Khasi National Durbar Hall of Mawkhar in Shillong on Monday.
MPCA leader, Rev PBM Basaiawmoit later disclosed before the media that the meeting has decided to begin the opting out process from Aadhaar enrolment particularly by those 1564 persons who had written to UIDAI and submitted representation to the Supreme Court to be allowed to opt out or withdraw from Aadhaar enrolment and several others who wish to opt out.
He further informed that persons who want to opt out of Aadhaar, can come to the Khasi Students Union (KSU) office at Jaïaw in Shillong on October 29, from 10 am onwards for necessary formalities to convey to UIDAI their desire to opt out.
Basaiawmoit also informed that the meeting has also resolved to study the possibility for filing and joining in filing Review Petition before a larger bench.
The meeting also expressed its gratitude to the Supreme Court lawyers for their stand and committed advocacy before the apex court bench on the matter.
