The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) will set up Aadhaar Seva Kendras (ASK) similar to the Passport Seva Kendras to ease the process of enrolment for Aadhaar.


  • The ASKs will provide “appointment based Aadhaar enrolment and update services to any resident in safe environs through multiple stations working simultaneously”.

  • The objective of these new Kendras, “is to ensure that the residents seeking services need not have to wait in queue as they can book a prior appointment and visit the Kendra accordingly”

  • The ASKs will be supervised by UIDAI employees.

  • In the first phase, 114 ASKs will be established in 53 cities and towns including state capitals.

  • The ASKs will be “in addition to the centres operating in banks, post offices and in government premises”.
