Aadhaar cards re-issued at relief camps

Madikeri: To ensure flood victims are not denied relief for lack of identity papers, the Revenue Department in Kodagu has launched Aadhaar centres in relief camps across the district.

Residents are being issued printouts of Aadhaar cards by verifying their biometric details on the spot. The first such Aadhaar centre was set up in Jodupala, a border village of the district. Officials are using thumb impressions to re-issue Aadhaar cards. No other documents are required for this. Aadhaar centres have been set up in all relief camps.
