  • Sir, I am very happy to get India's Most valuable identity. But I can't understand why some of our offices not considering this as Identity. Recently I approached Shymas Honda,Alappuzha,Kerala, for booking a two wheeler. But they refused accept my Adhar card as Identity,saying that our motor vehicle Dept not yet considered this as ID. If any one can help Please mail me at sasinair4477@gmail.com.

  • Sir,

    it is informed that UID is issued to identify a person, mainly through the photo of the person. But, when a person see the quality of the photo taken in connection with this process, he himself will be unable to identify himself; then, how can another person identify him.

    I am a residing at Peroor Village in Ettumanoor Panchayat in Kottayam District in Keralam. My enrollment No is 2007/32058/02541 dated18/09/2011 at 14:43:17. When I saw my photo in the acknowledgement issued to me I was actually sad to see me in this pathetic condition. The photos of my family members also were of the same condition. When I said this to others they were also of the same opinion about the photos of themselves and their family members.

    The enrollment agency was Swathy Smartcards Hi-Tech Pvt.Ltd. When agencies were selected for this type of huge and important programs, it should have been verified whether their equipments are of high quality. Anyway, I am sorry to inform that it is very difficult to identify a person through the photo in the Unique Identification Card to be issued, if it is the same photo that is issued in the acknowledgement copy to the concerned persons. I request that the agency may be asked to rectify the defects before issuing the original identification card.
    With regards,

    Yours faithfully,
