Aadhar not mandatory for booking an International Parcel, says Department of Posts

10 SEP 2018

The Department of Posts today clarified that it is mandatory to produce an Identity Proof acceptable for important transactions like booking an International Parcel or International EMS (Merchandise) for safety and security reasons. One of the accepted Identity Proof is Aadhaar, along with others like driving license, Passport, Voter ID etc which are also acceptable. Aadhaar, as per the prevailing norms in the country, is not a mandatory document to be produced at the time of booking. Moreover, all such documents are only required for office record and are NOT required to be pasted on the consignments.

The clarification comes in the wake of a news report published in The Times of India, Bengaluru edition dated 10.09.2018 with the heading “India Post asks for display of Aadhaar number on parcels“. The department said that it appears that the confusion was created by an erroneous message generated from the twitter account of the office of the Chief Postmaster General, Delhi Circle wherein it was mentioned that pasting of ID proof on consignments is in accordance with international guidelines.

Instructions are being reiterated to the post offices to ensure smooth booking of articles taking the convenience and regulatory requirements into account together. The Department of Posts said that a copy of any ID proof including Aadhaar is required for booking of International Parcel and International EMS (Merchandise) for security purpose based on requests received from organizations like Narcotics Control Bureau and Wild Life Crime Control Bureau. India Post is committed to ensuring safety and security in its operations.

Mandatory Aadhaar linking: SC reserves order

Mandatory Aadhaar linking: SC reserves order

The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its interim order for tomorrow on pleas seeking a stay on the government’s decision of mandatory linking of Aadhaar with various welfare schemes.

A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said the final hearing on the petitions challenging the Aadhaar scheme itself would commence from January 17 next year.

The central government had yesterday attempted to convince the court not to interfere with its deadlines, promising to extend it for another three months till 31 March 2018 for those who do not have Aadhaar.

Earlier on October 25, the Supreme court had said that the deadline for compulsory linking of Aadhaar to receive benefits of government schemes has been extended till March 31, 2018 for those who do not have the 12-digit unique biometric identification number.

Earlier the court had tagged 22 cases to be heard by a smaller bench.

The cases challenge several aspects of Aadhaar, including the use of data collected under the unique identification programme.

As of now, the 12-digit Aadhaar number is compulsory to be linked to bank accounts, PAN cards, government services and cell phone services.

Income Tax department launches new facility to link Aadhaar with PAN

Income Tax department launches new facility to link Aadhaar with PAN

New Delhi: The Income Tax department has launched a new e-facility to link a person’s Aadhaar with the Permanent Account Number (PAN), a mandatory procedure for filing IT returns now.

The department’s e-filing website https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/ has created a new link on its homepage making it easy” to link the two unique identities of an individual.

The link requires a person to punch in his PAN number, Aadhaar number and the exact name as given in the Aadhaar card”.

After verification from the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), the linking will be confirmed. In case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar name provided, Aadhaar OTP (one time password) will be required,” the department said in its advisory to taxpayers and individuals.

The OTP will be sent on the registered mobile number and email of the individual.

It urged them to ensure that the date of birth and gender in PAN and Aadhaar are exactly the same, to ensure linking without failure.

There is no need to login or be registered on e-filing website (of the I-T department). This facility can be used by anyone to link their Aadhaar with PAN,” it said.

The government, under the Finance Act 2017, has made it mandatory for taxpayers to quote Aadhaar or enrolment ID of Aadhaar application form for filing of income tax returns (ITR).

Also, Aadhaar has been made mandatory for applying for permanent account number with effect from July 1, 2017.

The department, till now, has linked over 1.18 Aadhaar with its PAN database.

While Aadhaar is issued by the UIDAI to a resident of India, PAN is a ten-digit alphanumeric number issued in the form of a laminated card by the IT department to any person, firm or entity.

Aadhaar number made compulsory in all government service records

Aadhaar number made compulsory in all government service records

The Central Government had issued the following orders from time to time regarding aading the Aadhaar number in Service Reocords of Central Government Employees.

The Honourable Supreme Court of India had already clarified that Aadhaar numbers cannot be made compulsory for Indian citizens. But the Centre had argued that Aadhaar numbers are necessary for its welfare schemes. The case is pending in the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, without declaring that Aadhaar numbers are compulsory for all, the central government has made it compulsory for enjoying the various benefit schemes that are being offered. This has led to a debate if the centre is indirectly twisting the arms of the citizens to obtain the Aadhaar number.

In the meantime, an order was issued by the finance minister of the Delhi state government on Tuesday. It said that in order to speed up the pension distribution and salary due payments, certain new clauses have been added to Form 5. Since the order issued in this regard by the Ministry of Labour Welfare and Training is applicable to the employees of all the state and union territory governments, the employees of Delhi state government too are bound by it. Until now, the pensions for the employees of Delhi state government were given at the Accounts Auditor’s office of the Ministry of Finance. It has now been made compulsory for all the Delhi state government employees to submit their Aadhaar numbers. Hence, orders have been issued to all the employees to add their Aadhaar numbers to their Service Records.

The Department of Exchequer of the Ministry of Finance had issued an order on June 2, in which, just stopping short of saying that Aadhaar card is compulsory for all, it laid emphasis on possessing the Aadhaar number. That is, as part of the Digital India plan, and for the issuing of digital life certificate to government employees, the government is forced to take certain steps. In order to facilitate these, employees have to now submit their PAN Cards, Aadhaar numbers, email ID and cellphone numbers in their pension book records. A number of accounts department in various offices do not bother to confirm if the employees possess Aadhaar cards. The order says that the offices must insist that the employees present their Aadnaar number when they begin to draw their pensions.

Office Memorandum

Subject:- Preparation of list of Government servants due to retire along with their Aadhaar numbers and incorporation of Aadhaar number in PPO Booklet.

 

1. As a part of Digital India initiatives, Digital Life Certification (DLC) of the pensioner has been made an option for submission of life certificate by the pensioner in the month of November each year. As the role of Aadhaar has become vital, a column for Aadhaar has already been provided in the Pension Payment Order booklet. Accordingly, all Heads of Offices have to ensure that wherever available same is provided to their Pay & Accounts Offices alongwith pension papers of the retiring government servants. In this regard, a provision has also been made in CAM-52 (PPO Booklet) by adding the following columns after existing column no.5.

6. Permanent Account Number for Income Tax (PAN)
7. Aadhaar No. (if Available)
8. Mobile No. (if Available)
9. E-Mail ID (if Available)

2. The seeding of Aadhaar with pensioners’ PPO number and their bank accounts is being closely monitored by Prime Minister Office. While this information is being regularly collected by CPAO from banks, the processing of fresh pension cases alongwith Aadhaar number is a very important requirement for expediting seeding of Aadhaar number by banks with PPO number & bank account and smooth implementation of submission of DLCs by pensioners in the month of November.

3. Further, attention is invited to Rule 56 of CCS (Pension) Rules which provides that:-

“(1) Every Head of Department shall have a list prepared every three months, that is, on the 1st January, 1st April, 1st July and 1st October each year, of all Government servants who are due to retire within the next twelve to fifteen months of that date.

(2) A copy of every such list shall be supplied to the Accounts Officer concerned not later than 31st January, 30th April, 31st July or 31st October, as the case may be, of that year.”

4. To avoid any delay in finalizing the pension cases all Heads of Offices should have first-hand information of the Aadhaar number while preparing the list of retiring government officials as per the provision of Rule 56 of CCS (Pension) Rules and should provide the same to the Accounts Officer concerned not later than 31st January, 30th April, 31st July or 31st October of that year.
5. In has been observed that during the month of June, 2015; out of 3101fresh PPOs (Pension Payment Orders), only in 220 cases Aadhaar numbers have been indicated. All Pr. CCAs/CCAs/ AGs are once again requested to ensure that all fresh PPOs are sent to CPAO with Aadhaar numbers wherever available and quarterly list of would be retirees as mentioned in para 3 & 4 above also mention Aadhaar numbers wherever available.

Implementation of Common Biometric Attendance System

Implementation of Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System in all KV Schools

KENDRIYA VIDYALAYA SANGATHAN (HQ)
18, Institutional Area, S.J. Marg,
New Delhi-110016.

F. No. 11090-50/2015KVS (S&S)

Date: 15.06.2015

The Deputy Commissioner/Director
Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan,
All Regional Offices/All ZIETs

IMPORTANT

Subject: Implementation of Common Biometric Attendance System

Madam/Sir,

As a part of the “Digital India” program of Government of India, it has been decided to implement common Biometric Attendance System (BAS) which will enable an employee to register attendance by simply presenting his I her biometric (finger print/ Iris) which will be authenticated online by doing one to one match with the bio-metric stored in the UIDAI data base against the employee’s Aadhaar number. This Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System needs only Aadhaar number, basic demographic details and a photograph of the user at the time of user registration which can be done by employee himself I herself by simple web based system. The biometric details are already available with the UIDAI which are then used for authentication.

2. To overcome the challenges in the present attendance systems, Common Biometric Attendanc System is envisaged with following featuree:

2.1 Cloud-based attendance software installed and operated from NIC National Data Centre
(Further details can be noted from para 2 of “On-boarding Manual for Biometric Attendance System” which is available on the ‘attendance.gov,in’ web site)

2.2 Dedicated secure connectivity will be provided between National Data Centre & UIDAI Data Centre by NIC for authentication.

2.3 All Ministries I Departments I subordinate organisations can access the system using the NIC network provided in the Bhawans.

2.4 Offices using the system will install biometric enabled terminals I devices to mark the attendance; the number and location of required devices will be assessed by the offices; the offices concerned will be responsible for day-today maintenance of the devices.

2.5 Connectivity of the devices /terminals will be established through Wi-Fi I GPRS.

2.6 Customised reporting formats for various levels of employees will be developed by UIDAI/ NIC.

2.7 Facility for centralised compilation and publication of attendance data in public domain will be provided as per requirements.

3. This setup costs extremely less and management information system does not require any resources or manual intervention. To facilitate the implementation and thereafter operate the Biometric Attendance System (BAS), it is desired to nominate a Nodal Officer (NO) for acting as a Single Point of Contract (SPoC) for driving the Boimetric attendance initiative. The Deputy Commissioner will be the Nodal Officer in case of Regional Offices. The Director will be the Nodal Officer in case of ZIETs and Principal shall be the Nodal Officer in case of Kendriya Vidyalaya concerned. The Nodal Officer shall be responsible for:-

3.1 Monitoring and co-coordinating with the stakeholders for smooth functioning of the Biometric Attendance System

3.2 providing update facility for bio-metric updating in case of poor bio-metric capture during enrolment process and in cases where there are failure in detecting the fingerprints by organising Aadhaar camps.

3.3 Organising special Aadhaar Enrolment Camps (AECs), if considerable numbers of employees are not able to register on the portal due to nonavailability of Aadhaar numbers.

3.4 Aadhaar number generation for the enrolments done in the AECs.

3.5 e-Aadhaar access.

3.6 Best Finger Detection and other Aadhaar related issues.

3.7 The Nodal Officers concerned are required to register the Unit online (once) on the portal for using attendance.gov.in by giving number of employees and their existing website name. Once the registration of the KVS unit (i.e Regional Office/ZIET/KV, as the case may be) is complete, the name of Unit concerned will be listed in the portal for enrolment of the employees and generation of various types of reports pertaining to that Unit.
(For further details and steps for on-boarding the unit in the attendance portal can be found in Appendix ‘B’ of para 5.2 of On-boarding Manual for Biometric Attendance System-)

3.8 Subsequent step after registration of Unit concerned is, registration of employees. The employees of the Unit concerned are required to do online registration on attendance.gov.in portal for enabling them to mark attendance. The employees need to fill an online form using the fink ‘Employees Registration’ on the attendance portal. After the quality check y the UIDAI I Nodal Officer the employee becomes active in the attendance portal and can mark its attendance through the devices installed.
(The details required for on boarding of employees in the attendance portal can be found in Appendix ‘C’ of para 5.3 to 5.6 of ‘On-boarding Manual for Biometric Attendance System’·)

4. In the first phase of implementation, approximately 150 Central Government Organisations have on boarded about 50,000 employees on common attendance portal {attendance.gov.in). 1000 wall mounted bio-metric attendance terminals, 5000 finger prints scanning devices and 200 IRIS devices have been procured through an open tender process floated by NICS I for 100 Government Bhawans I buildings. In the second phase of the program, the Gol has proposed that Central Government organisations shall use the common biometric attendance portal, which is hosted at NIC data center and shall procure I maintain biometric attendance terminals and desktop fingerprint scanning devices I IRIS devices in a decentralised manner, through open tenders, DGS&D rate contract & NICSI empanelled vendors. The Central Government Organisations shall procure the required Wi-Fi Access point for enabling network connectivity in the biometric attendance terminals through DGS&D rate contract.
(Further details for the plan of action can be noted from para 4, 5.7 of On-boarding Manual for Biometric Attendance System-)

5. It is estimated that for every 50 employees, one wall mounted bio-metric attendance terminal would be required and one finger print scanning device on a desktop would be sufficient for a unit (i.e. RO/ZIET/KV). Therefore, the total requirement of wall mounted biometric terminals as well as desktop devices could be estimated based on the total number of employees. However, depending upon the justified ground – based circumstances, the additional number of such devices can be
procured for the smooth implementation of the BAS. The device(s) [i.e. wall mounted bio-metric attendance terminals, desktop finger print and iris scanning devices] can be procured through following methods:-

5.1 NICSI – devices are readily available for procurement through tho empanelled venders.

5.2 OPEN TENDERS devises can also be procured through open tenders but device specification should adhered to as appended in Appendix ‘D’ of the On-boarding Manual for Biometric Attendance System.

5.3 DGS&D – rate contracts are being finalised,. However, present status may be inquired at your level and document(s) in this regard be kept in your office record before taking further action.
( Tlw Indicative specifications ot tile devices required for the Installation of the BAS can be found in Appendix ‘D’ of the On-boarding Manuel for Biometric Attendance System·)

6. The bio-metric attendance terminals would require Wi-Fi connectivity through the internet I NICNET for communicating with the back-end attendance servers, which are installed at NIC data centers. Therefore, there is need to procure connectivity (GPRS/Wi-Fi using NICNET/Broadband /Internet) from suitable service providers. For proper functioning of the Biometric attendance terminals, minimum 1 mbps of bandwidth connectivity is advised. The format placed at Appendix ‘E’ of the On-boarding Manual for Biometric Attendance System for capturing the connectivity requirements may be used.

7. The site for installation of the wall mounted biometric terminals under 24 hours security shall be vigilantly & intelligently identified by the Nodal Officer ensuring the following:-

7.1 220 V/5A Electrical points with suitable security.

7.2 Protection from environmental conditions like rain, sun etc.

7.3 LAN point for connecting Wi-Fi access devices.

7.4 Good data connectivity through GPRS I 3G as a backup connectivity. Appendix ‘F’ of the On-boarding Manual for Biometric Attendance System for site requirements may be referred to.

8. The Nodal Officer shall take up the installation, commissioning and maintenance of the Biometric attendance terminals with the help of vendors who are empanelled with DGS&D, UIDAI, NIC and DeitY who shall extend all technical support for integrated back-end infrastructure.

9. The Nodal Officer of the respective Unit (i.e. Regional Offices, ZIETs and Kendriya Vidyalayas) shall be responsible for maintenance of the devices installed in his I her Unit. The agencies will also be responsible for taking suitable on-site warranty support for smooth functioning of BAS.

For any suspicion, you may visit the ‘On-boarding Manual for Organisations to install Aadhaar-enabled Biometric Attendance System’ which is readily available on the KVS web-portal and also the FAQs available on ‘http://attendance.gov.in/fag/public fag’.

10. The Nodal Officers in case of KVS, Regional Offices and ZIETs shall ensure to complete the process of procurement of devices as per requirement & norms and make the Biometric Attendance System functional by 07.07.2015.

11. The Deputy Commissioner of respective Regions will further ensure that the Biometric Attendance System is put on fully functional in each of the Kendriya Vidyalaya of his I her Region.

12. It is also intimated that M/s MGRM Net Ltd have been recently awarded the work of MIS/ERP of all KVs through NICSI by KVS. M/s MGRM Net Ltd will be providing one Bio-metric terminal with no additional cost to each school while implementing MIS/ERP (KV Shaala Darpan) in all Kendriya Vidyalayas. One Biometric Terminal seems to be sufficient for 50 to register attendance. So, a KV up to the strength of 50 employee, need not spend on hardware (Biometric device) The compliance report may be sent to this office. Suggestions, if any, to improve the system are solicited.

Yours faithfully,

Biometric Attendance System – Are the Central Government Employees Supporting or Opposing It?

BIOMETRIC ATTENDANCE SYSTEM is the procedure of registering the attendance by placing the thumb imprint on a machine which captures the imprint and records the time of entry or exit from the office. In the moderate scheme, the employee has to manually enter his/her 6-digit Aadhaar number and then confirm his/her identity by fingerprint and iris-scan.

 

Biometric Attendance System – Are the Central Government Employees Supporting or Opposing It?

 

On the 21st of last month, the DOPT issued an order announcing its decision to implement the new biometric attendance system linking the employee’s Aadhaar number with his/her attendance. This system, according to the order, was to soon be implemented in offices of all the Central Government departments and their various agencies.

 

It is well known that the system has already been implemented in all the Government-run offices in New Delhi. The order says that the system will be implemented completely before the end of this year. And, before January 26, 2015, the scheme will be expanded to other regions of the country.

How do the Central Government employees feel about this new system that has become the talk of the town?

 

As far as we could see, about 95% of the employees are not greatly affected or troubled by this new system.

Once in a while, employees tend to be late to work due to unavoidable reasons like unexpected traffic hurdles or they might have to go out for their personal work during office hours. There is no denying these facts. But the system is a major irritation for those who are habitually late to work and go out on personal business during office hours. The change of system has hardly produced any reaction from those who are regular and on time at work.

 

But, there are no answers to the questions raised by employees who are forced to stay back to complete their work.

Aadhar enabled bio-metric attendance system – Early leaving is also to be treated as late coming…

Government introduces Aadhar enabled bio-metric attendance system

The Centre on Friday decided to phase-out manual attendance system and use an Aadhar enabled bio-metric attendance system (AEBAS) in all its offices.

“It has been decided to use an Aadhar enabled bio-metric attendance system in all offices of the central government, including attached and sub-ordinate offices, in India,” said an order issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT).

Aadhar is a 12 digit individual identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India on behalf of the central government.

The system will be installed in the offices located in New Delhi by this year end.

In other places this may be installed by January 26, 2015, it said.

The Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) will provide technical guidance for installing the system, the order said.

The equipment will be procured by the ministries or departments as per specifications of DeitY on Directorate General of Supplies and Disposals (DGS&D) rate contract from authorised vendors.

The expenditure will be met by the ministries or departments concerned. “The manual system of attendance may be phased out accordingly,” it said.

The bio-metric attendance system is only an enabling platform. There is no change in the instructions relating to office hours, late attendance etc. which will continue to apply, the order said.

As per existing instructions, half a-day’s casual leave should be debited for each day of late attendance, but late attendance upto an hour, on not more than two occasions in a month, and for justifiable reasons may be condoned by the competent authority.

“Disciplinary action may also be taken against government servants who are habitually late. Early leaving is also to be treated in the same manner as late coming,” the instructions said.

All central government ministries and departments have been asked by the DoPT to follow the orders which comes into force “with immediate effect”.

Leveraging Aadhaar for improving the services of EPFO – regarding.

Leveraging Aadhaar for improving the services of EPFO – regarding.


Employees Provident Fund Organisation
Ministry of Labour & Employment, Govt. Of India

R-I/UID/2010/37496
Date: 06.02.2013 (6 FEB 2013)

To
All ACCs (Political states),
All RPFC-I (In-charge of Regions),
AH RPFC-II (In-charge of SROs)
(Through web circulation)

Subject: Leveraging Aadhaar for improving the services of EPFO – regarding.

Sir,
This is in reference to Head Office letter No. RI(UID/2010/300351 dated 21.01.2013 on the subject cited above. The issue of expeditious enrolment of the EPF members was discussed with UIDAI Officials. ¡t has emerged that UIDA1 through its registrars has been organising enrollment camps in 18 states only. Register General of India (RGI) has been collecting data in respect of the remaining states through National Population Register (NPR). While the data collected by RGI is also being processed for issue of Aadhaar numbers by UIDAI, the methodology used by RGI for setting up enrolment camps is different i.e. it is being done on the basis of house-to-house data collected by enumerators during Census Operations 2011, unlike UIDAI camps, where any resident, Irrespective  of the place of residence, can get himself enrolled for Aadhaar number. This enrolment may take considerable time.

In view of the discussions held with UIDAI officials and the time required in the process of obtaining Aadhaar numbers, it may not be possible to obtain Aadhaar number / Aadhaar Enrolment number by EPF members by 1st March,2013. Therefore, it has been decided to not to make Aadhaar Number / Enrolment number mandatory for EPF members from 1st March, 2013. However, the field offices would make maximum efforts to obtain the available Aadhaar numbers of the EPF members.

Further your attention is invited to Head Office letter no. MIS-II/ISO-9001/2011-12/24686 dated 9th November 2012 on implementation of ISO 9001 Certification for the field offices which is a mandatory success indicator under the Results Framework Document (RFD). The updation of members’ master in database ¡s one of the standards required for the purpose. In view of the benefits that would accrue both to the EPF members as well as EPFO, It has now been decided to collect the core banking account number of all the contributing members as indicated In ECR.

The Regional offices and Sub-Regional offices should make an all-out effort to collect the core banking account numbers in respect of all the contributing members as indicated in ECR. Compliance of instructions may kindly be ensured in this regard.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-
(Anil Swarup)
Central Provident Fund Commissioner
