Identical twins get ‘Baal Aadhaar’ in Arunachal – Times of India

GUWAHATI: Arunachal Pradesh on Thursday rolled out Aadhaar Linked Birth Registration (ALBR) to issue ‘Baal Aadhaar’, becoming the second state in the northeast to do so.
Identical twins became the first to be enrolled with ‘Baal Aadhaar’ through a tablet. The service was launched by Mimum Tayeng, secretary of the state women and child development department.
Tayeng said ALBR will play a crucial role in enrolling newborns and will also cover children in the age group of 0-5 years.
She urged the state government officials to cooperate in the successful implementation of ALBR in all the districts of Arunachal Pradesh so that no child is deprived of any social welfare scheme.
Providing Aadhaar services to the residents of the state was a herculean task considering the challenging terrain and lack of internet connectivity.
Col Abhishek Koushik, director of UIDAI, said on successful enrolment, the child would be provided with a blue-coloured ‘Baal Aadhaar’ which would be visibly distinguishable from other Aadhaar cards. He applauded the consistent efforts of the nodal department, department of economics & statistics and all other registrars in the state for providing Aadhaar services to the residents in one of the toughest terrains of the country.
In the first phase, ALBR has been initiated in all 25 district headquarters where there is no difficulty in availing internet connectivity, officials said.
With around 88% of Aadhaar enrollments against its projected population, Arunachal Pradesh stood in a better position than a few other NE states.
In the existing system of Aadhaar enrollment wherever internet connectivity is not available, the encrypted packet – containing details of the resident, is saved and later uploaded on the Aadhaar system when connectivity is available, an official said, underling the way ahead in Arunachal where a large number of villages still do not have internet connectivity.
