Come November 2013, barring seven districts covered under the National Population Register (NPR) project, rest of Karnataka will be ‘Aadhar’ enabled. Aadhaar is a 12-digit individual identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). The seven districts where NPR project is being executed are Gadag, Uttara Kannada, Haveri, Udupi, Davangere, Bangalore Rural and Chikkaballapura.
In the first phase, the Centre covered 23% of Karnataka’s population in 21 districts, including around 98% of population in Mysore and Tumkur respectively. In Dakshina Kannada, a total of 1,07,736 people in four taluks barring Sullia were covered under Aadhar enumeration with help of 17 stations deployed for the purpose from September 12, 2011 to February 2, 2012. The Commissioner for Census is in-charge of NPR districts, the spokesperson said.
