To provide relief to Aadhaar Card holders living in rural India, the UIDAI has allowed the Common Service Centre to start the Aadhaar updation facility at 20,000 centres that operate as Banking Correspondents.
In a bid to provide relief to Aadhaar Card holders living in rural India, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has allowed the Common Service Centre (CSC) to start the Aadhaar updation facility at 20,000 centres that operate as Banking Correspondents (BCs). For the latest UIDAI update you can log onto the official UIDAI website — uidai.gov.in.
Union Telecom and Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad recently made an announcement in this regard and said, “To make Aadhaar updation easier, the UIDAI has permitted CSCs that are designated as BCs to offer Aadhaar update services. Around 20,000 such CSCs will now be able to offer the service," adding, “I would like the CSC`s village-level entrepreneurs (VLEs) to start the Aadhaar work as per the UIDAI instructions. This facility will help a large number of rural people to get Aadhaar services closer to their homes.”

The UIDAI has set the June 2020 deadline for start of work after CSCs with banking facilities upgrade their infrastructure and get other necessary approvals. The UIDAI CSC authorities have asked all BCs to finish technical and other upgradation work, which the UIDAI had asked for, to start Aadhaar updation at the earliest.
Apart from 20,000 BCs, over 30,000 CSCs are delivering banking service using AePS (Aadhaar-enabled payment system). About 1.2 lakhs AePS transactions worth Rs 20 crore are taking place a day. This is helping farmers, Jan Dhan account holders, pensioners, Ujwala beneficiaries in withdrawing the amount, transferred to their accounts by the government through DBT.
