Man spends 6 yrs trying to correct error on daughter's Aadhar card; issue resolved by ASK in Kochi

Mohammed Safwan and Sherin Sahana with their Aadhar cards

Neeleswaram: Abdul Salam, a father hailing from Chayyom, walked around cluelessly for six years trying to correct an error on his daughter’s Aadhar card. He went to every Akshaya centre to get the corrections done. He was confused and worried about what to do when he saw the story that was published on Mathrubhumi recently.

He learned about the Aadhar Seva Kendra (ASK) in Kochi that corrects mistakes on the Aadhar card through Mathrubhumi and left for Kochi the very next day. Abdul Salam returned home within one hour after having made the necessary corrections.

Here’s the story Abdul Sala has to say:

“I have twins, Mohammed Safwan and Sherin Sahana. Both of them completed Class 10 from Chayyom school this year. The Aadhar cards in their names were taken when they were in Class 4. When the cards arrived, my daughter’s card carried all the personal information of my son. Only the photo on the card was correct. There were no corrections on my son’s card. It took a long time for the error to get corrected. We were really concerned that it would become a huge problem as Aadhar card is required for Plus One admission.”

There is an Aadhar Seva Kendra in Kochi to correct all errors on the Aadhar card and is the only Aadhar Seva Kendra in the state. The Seva Kendra under the Unique Identification Authority of India is located near Palarivattom Bypass Signal point. The centre functions from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm all seven days of the week. Appointments can be made online.
