Imphal, April 30 2013: A high level official meeting presided by Chief Minister O Ibobi today decided to complete the work of biometrics enrolment within two months which would be taken up under the National Population Register.

The meeting was convened following strong instructions from the Centre regarding the biometrics enrolment programme.

The meeting was attended by Deputy Chief Minister, Ministers, Chief Secretary, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Census Director, Deputy Commissioners and officials of MANITRON and In-Media, an agency.

Speaking to media persons after the meeting, Government spokesman M Okendro stated that the meeting decided to complete the biometrics enrolment work by June 30 .

To ensure that biometrics enrolment work is completed within the said deadline, Ministers, MLAs and public representatives would cooperate fully with the officials concerned.

After collecting biometrics data such as iris image, fingerprints and photographs, each and every citizen would be given an unique identification (Aadhar) number.

This Aadhar number would be made a compulsory requirement while opening accounts in banks or post offices.

The same number would be put into use while selecting beneficiaries of schemes sponsored by the Centre or State Government, Okendro stated.

After collecting all the data by June 30, the data compilation portion would be completed by July 31.From August 1, only those who have been allotted Aadhar numbers would be made eligible for such schemes like MGNREGS, IAY, old age pension etc.

In-Media would do the biometrics enrolment work in Ukhrul, Bishnupur, Senpati and Thoubal while MANITRON would be assigned to Imphal West, Imphal East, Chandel, Tamenglong and Churachandpur.

Okendro appealed to all the people to come out and participate in the biometrics enrolment work in accordance to the schedule which would be worked out by Deputy Commissioners.

To a query, the Minister claimed that biometrics data collection has been completed up to 35 per cent so far.

He also admitted that the project is going slow in Ukhrul and Senapati.
