Imphal, May 08, 2017 (DIPR): Chief Minister Shri N Biren presided a review meeting on the progress of biometric capturing in hill districts for Aadhar enrolment in the Cabinet Hall of Chief Minister’s Secretariat today.
Ministers, Parliamentary Secretaries, MLAs, top bureaucrats of the State Government, DCs of hill districts and officials concerned attended the meeting.
Biometric enumeration (BME) for Aadhar card generation is being undertaken by MANITRON and In-Media Computer in the State now.
Stating that the rate of biometric enumeration in almost all the hill districts is very low when compared with valley districts, the Chief Minister observed that BME must be expedited in hill areas as direct benefit transfer (DBT) of Government-sponsored welfare schemes would require Aadhar cards/numbers.
During the meeting, the Chief Minister instructed MANITRON and In-Media officials to depute all its BME teams in hill districts leaving only 4-5 teams in the State Capital.
The Chief Minister also directed the respective MLAs of hill districts and DCs concerned to co-ordinate with MANITRON and In-Media officials to chalk out a schedule for commencing on-the-spot biometric capturing in different villages within a week.
Principal Secretary (Planning) Shri Vineet Joshi, who is also the Principal Secretary to CM, will monitor the progress of BME and Aadhar generation.
Further directing the DCs to submit a copy of BME schedules to Shri Vineet Joshi in a week’s time, Shri N. Biren stated that he would also personally monitor the whole process every alternate day.
The Chief Minister also urged the MLAs, ADC Members and villagers to extend co-operation to the Government officials and personnel of MANITRON and In-Media during their stay in different villages for biometric capturing. (DIPR)
