UAN means Universal Account Number. Every Provident Fund (PF) holder can have a UAN. With a UAN number and hence UAN passbook, the basic idea is to have a one-place for people who have multiple IDs from employee provident fund organization (EPFO). UAN acts as a high-level umbrella. Whenever an employee joins a company, he/she has to fill a “Declaration Form 11” and UAN number is also one of them. Learn below on how to generate UAN Number.

List of CNG Pumps Pune, Pimpri & Chinchwad

I had pain finding information online on CNG Pumps Pune when I got a CNG car for myself. So for the ease of others, here is the list of CNG stations in Pune.

CNG Pump Types

There are two types of CNG pumps: Online & Booster.

Online CNG Pump is often called as Mother station as this has a continuous supply of CNG and it does not have to wait for anything. The pressure of the Online pumps is higher and usually constant which helps in filling the maximum gas in your car.

Booster CNG Pump is often called as Daughter Booster station. Trucks carrying the CNG cylinders are reciprocated to feed the Daughter stations so that it can serve your cars. The pressure in Daughter stations is good only when it is full. As the gas empties from the Daughter stations, the pressure goes down causing lesser gas filling in your car.

Obviously, a mother / online station is preferable at any given time. However, since there are limited number of CNG Stations in Pune, the Mother pumps are heavily queued than Daughter Booster pumps.

Aadhaar Card Information Guide

Aadhaar card or UIDAI card

What is Aadhaar Card?

It is the unique identity number issued by the UIDAI. Each individual can have only
one Aadhaar card as it is linked to their biometrics preventing and frauds or fake
identity. It is more like the Social Security Number of USA citizens.

If you want to check the status of your application, visit my post for a step by step guide to check Aadhaar status online.

Benefits of Aadhaar Card

Uniqueness Only one Aadhaar card will be issued to each individual making it unique.

Portability Since the data is centrally managed, the agencies or service providers will validate the beneficiary’s details through this central system making it portable.

People without any valid Identity will have one now This is one of the major advantage of Aadhaar card. Today, even passports are unique but not that every individual has it. However, Aadhaar card will be issued to each and every individual through the introducers concept.

Easy & Faster Approval & Verification Processes Now, borrowing a loan, creating a bank account, joining a firm will become easier and faster with just one card due to the centralized management of the data by UIDAI.

What information is required to get an AADHAAR number?

Demographic information required:
* Name
* Date of Birth
* Gender
* Address
* Parent/Guardian details (required for children, adults may provide)
* Contact details phone and email (optional)

Biometric Information required:
* Photo
* 10 finger prints
* Iris

Enrolment process for a AADHAAR number

You will need to visit an enrolling agency, fill up an application form, provide Proof of Photo Identity, Proof of Address documents and other supporting documents.

One who does not have any document to prove his/her identity, he/she will require an Introducer for enrollment process.

The agency authorised person will validate the documents provided by you at the time.
And the demographic data will be captured in the system.

Biometrics information will include capturing ten finger prints, both iris scanning and facial photograph. This data will be sent to CIDR.

The biometric information will be checked in the database to ensure that it does not already exists.
If the informatio is not found the database, Aadhaar details will be generated and will be sent to the individual at his/her residence. The Aadhaar number will also be sent to the agency for use in their service database.

If the individual is already in the database, or in case of any other quality/data validation failure the application will be rejected and the person will be informed of the same.

Documents required for Proof of Identity (PoI) & Proof of Address (PoA)

Common proofs of identity and address are:
Election Card, Ration card, Passport and Driving License.
Photo ID cards like PAN card and Govt ID cards are permissible for Identity Proof or PoI.

Address proof (PoA) documents also include water, electricity & telephone bills from the last three months.
In case you do not have above common proofs, Certificate of Identify having photo issued by Gazetted Officer/Tehsildar on letterhead is also accepted as PoI. Certificate of Address having photo issued by MP or MLA /Gazetted Officer/Tehsildar on letterhead or by Village Panchayat head or its equivalent authority (for rural areas) is accepted as valid PoA. Even if someone in a family does not have individual valid documents, the resident can still enrol if his/her name exists in family entitlement document. In this case the Head of Family in entitlement document needs to be enrolled first with valid PoI & PoA document. The head of the household can then introduce other members in the family while they are enrolling.

Who can be an Introducer?

What is Introducer system?
UIDAI recognises that some people particularly children, women, migrant workers, homeless, nomadic tribes, urban poor and others may not be able to produce documentary proof of identity and proof of address. In order to enable inclusion of these individuals for AADHAAR, the data standards committee recommended that the introducer system be created similar to the introducer framework followed by banks for opening bank accounts.

Who can be an Introducer?
An Introducer is a person who is authorized to introduce a resident who does not possess any PoA / PoI documents. The main objective of the introducer system is to enable enrolment of residents into Aadhaar, who are otherwise hard to reach and may not be part of any government database.

Example: Registrar’s employees, elected members, members of local administration bodies, postmen, influencers such as teachers & doctors, Anganwadi / ASHA workers, representative of local NGO’s etc. identified by a Registrar and registered in UIDAI’s CIDR as “Introducers”.
