In a move to meet the June-end deadline for the unique identification (UID) number scheme, the Mysore district administration has made it mandatory for learner's licence or driving licence. If you have already applied for Aadhar, just quote the enrolment number to get the licence.
Deputy commissioner Harsh Gupta said on Friday that they are starting with the RTOs in the district. Next it will be implemented at the Mysore City Corporation and Mysore Urban Development Authority for those seeking licences for construction of a house or buying site.
UID number is a 12-digit number allotted to the residents. Some 16.70 lakh in Mysore district have enrolled while an estimated 10% of 16.70 lakh have got their UID number.
People seeking to get government benefits will have to produce Aadhar number. Be it for enrolment under the rural employment guarantee scheme, getting new telephone connection or opening a bank account, the number is mandatory. It will be further extended for payment of income tax.
