UIDAI has decided to allow the Common Service Centre to introduce the Aadhaar update service at 20,000 centres which run as Banking Correspondents (BCs).

The CSCs will, however, not be allowed to accept the new applicants for Aadhaar, reports say.

Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said in a tweet that a total of 20,000 CSCs will be able to provide this facility, Gizbot reported.

He further said to the CSC’s village-level entrepreneurs (VLEs) to start the Aadhaar work as per the guidelines of UIDAI.

The date for linking Aadhaar and PAN cards has been extended to June.

The government of India has made mandatory for everyone to link important details with Aadhaar such as mobile numbers, bank accounts, etc.

CSCs had made 20 crore Aadhaar before it was closed. But many people of the rural area didn’t complete their Aadhaar Authentic service.

Now, CSCs made it easy for these people during this lockdown situation.

They can update their Aadhaar card with help of these 20,000 centres. So, they don’t need to go to Aadhaar centres at bank branches or post offices.
