21 lakh PSC applicants yet to link their profiles with Aadhar
Pathanamthitta: 21 lakh PSC applicants are yet to link their profiles with Aadhar card. Biometric tests will be mandatory for PSC online exams from March onwards. This has caused panic in more than 10 lakh applicants as they have not yet been able to link their Aadhar cards due to lack of required information.
Applicants can link their profiles with Aadhar card only if the right name, date of birth, phone number and address are provided. To add any such information to their respective Aadhar cards, one has to enroll for Aadhar yet again with their official documents. This will take a lot of time. The security features have been included to make the exams error free.
50 lakh people registered
