On 23rd May'16, I visited Maha-E-Seva Kendra in Virar West(Below mentioned is the complete address for the same) to get my wife enroled in Adhaar and also wanted to get my biometric updated in the Same since my finger prints were not matching in your record while getting the Online Rent Agreement.
I was very surprised when they asked for Rs. 50.00 each for my wife's enrolment and my biometric updation too. Whereas nowhere it is mentioned that there is a fee for the same.
Everywhere it is mentioned that it is free. After completing the enrolment process for my wife, they laminated the acknowledgment slip without giving me an option and asked for Rs. 50.00. When I opposed, they said that it is mandatory and the enrolment will not be processed if the fee is not paid. When I asked for the receipt, I was completely denied by the agent Kavita saying that they do not provide any receipt and I will have to pay the amount if I wanted the same to be taken care of. She was also supported by all other staffs.
I was not left with any option other than making the payment. So I paid them Rs. 50.00 each.
And I was not the only one who was forced to pay this. Everyone else who was there for any enrollment or for any updation had to pay Rs 50.00 each.
Most important, they do not provide any enrollment/ update form. Same has to be purchased from the shop next to the agency.
And I am sure this is not the first complain. You must have received multiple complains regarding the same. But it does not seem that any strict action has been taken against them. If you want to cross check, visit there for a new enrollment or to get any adhaar updated. You will come to know the whole truth.
There is no transparency at all. Please ask all agencies and enrolment centre to display the fee in big letters if there is any. Or even if it is free. It should be made mandatory. And strict action should be taken against such agencies who are making fool of the citizens and are contributing in black marketing.
Hope to see some improvement and need someone to address this concern.
Below mentioned are the details of the agency and the enrolment nos.
Icchapurti, Gaothan Road,
Maharashtra - 401303,
Near Sai Baba Mandir
