The Andhra Pradesh IT Department will be offering its Mee Seva service platform to help people get their Aadhaar numbers and ease the rush at the existing enrolment centres.

The platform has a special software solution framework, the Andhra Pradesh State Resident Data Hub (APSRDH), initiated by the department to create an unique citizen database and seeding of Aadhaar number to beneficiary databases.

One of the services offered through the Mee Seva centres is for those who have enrolled, but did not receive their numbers or lost their enrolment slips. “For these people, a mechanism of retrieval of Aadhaar details and seeding of the number is made available through Mee Seva centres. They can seed their Aadhaar numbers with multiple schemes like pensions, ration card and LPG,” an official communication said.

These people can use the data hub by using an advanced search service through the existing 6,000 Mee Seva centres. People can also self-seed their Aadhaar number into multiple beneficiary schemes.

Mee Seva centres can facilitate in retrieving the Aadhar numbers for five crore of the resident data available in the data hub.

This service will benefit those who are enrolled but have no information about their Aadhaar status and reduce multiple visits to the different Government department to seed their Aadhaar number.

The statement said the existing enrolment centres would complete their coverage by May end. To facilitate the residual population coverage, the enrolment centres would be established at the Mee Seva centres.

A new service, Online Slot Booking for Aadhaar Enrolment, is being developed through a centralised portal to facilitate people to book their slots as per their convenient time.

People can update their details, such as name, phone number, residence address and other family members for enrolment, through this service. Once the enrolment slot is booked, the information will be passed on to them through mobile SMS.

“This new service will be started shortly and will be initially for Hyderabad and Rangareddy districts,” the statement said.
