    The Unique Identification Authority of India, UIDAI has operationalised 21 Aadhaar Seva Kendras, ASK as part of its plan to open 114 stand-alone Aadhaar enrolment and centres across the country.

    These are in addition to 35 thousand Aadhaar enrolment centers run by Banks, Post Offices and State Governments.

    These centres have a capacity to handle up to one thousand enrolment and requests per day and will be operational all days of the week including weekends, from 9:30 in the morning to 5:30 in the evening. They will be closed only on public holidays. UIDAI plans to set up 114 Aadhaar Seva Kendras in 53 cities across the country.

    While Aadhaar enrolment is free, a nominal charge of  50 rupees is payable for updating details like adding mobile number to Aadhaar, updating address, etc. The Aadhaar Seva Kendra has an efficient token management system which guides residents to relevant stages of the enrolment or process in a hassle-free manner. As these centres are air-conditioned and designed with adequate seating capacity, residents who have been provided a token will not have to stand in queue.
