Port Blair, June 6: The Member of Parliament, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Shri. Kuldeep Rai Sharma has requested the Chief Secretary of A&N Administration to send a team of officials of Civil Supply Department to Little Andaman at least for 10 days for conducting special camps, for correction of details in AADHAAR card.

In a letter addressed to the Chief Secretary he pointed out that due to lack of any facility at Little Andaman Island for correction of details in AADHAAR card, many Islanders are facing several problems in day to day life.

He added that due to lockdowns and movement restrictions for nearly two years many residents of Little Andaman could not plan any visit to Port Blair to make necessary correction in AADHAAR and even after lockdowns due to lack of sufficient sailing of vessels and other reasons it became too difficult for an ordinary Islander to visit Port Blair from Little Andaman, only for this one task.

The Member of Parliament pointed out that due to incorrect details many Islanders are not getting their pension while in other cases many are unable to do online transactions due to mention of wrong mobile number in AADHAAR card.
