Arunachal Pradesh Launches Aadhaar Linked Birth Registration


ITANAGAR |  Sep | 2023: 

Arunachal Pradesh has launched Aadhaar Linked Birth Registration (ALBR), a new initiative that will enable hassle-free Aadhaar enrolment of children across the state. With this, Arunachal Pradesh has become the second state in the North Eastern Region (NER) after Nagaland, to start ALBR.

The ALBR service was launched by Mimum Tayeng, IAS, Secretary, Department of Women & Child Development (WCD), Government of Arunachal Pradesh. The service was kickstarted by enrolling identical twins through a tablet.

Mimum Tayeng said that ALBR will play a vital role in enrolling newborn babies and also cover children below the age of 0-5 years. She urged the State Government officials to cooperate in the successful implementation of ALBR in all the districts of Arunachal Pradesh so that no child will be deprived of any social welfare schemes aimed at their benefit.

Col. Abhishek Koushik, Director, UIDAI, informed that on successful enrolment, the child would be provided with a blue-coloured ‘Baal Aadhaar’ which would be visibly distinguishable from other Aadhaars. He congratulated the Government of Arunachal Pradesh for implementing ALBR and appreciated the efforts put in by the WCD, to launch the ALBR in the state within a short period.

He also applauded the consistent efforts being carried out by the Nodal Department, Department of Economics & Statistics (DES), and all other Registrars in the state for providing Aadhaar services to the residents in one of the toughest terrains of the country.

To ensure better reach to residents across districts, the Directorate of Economics and Statistics, Arunachal Pradesh, which is also the Registrar for Birth and Death for the state, is acting as the Nodal Department for all Aadhaar Enrolment and Update activities in the state.

UIDAI has been extending continuous support to the States, by holding workshops, door-to-door enrolments, and visiting the remotest areas to handhold them to derive the benefits of the Aadhaar ecosystem. UIDAI’s Regional Office in Guwahati has been working closely with the Directorate of Economics and Statistics, Arunachal Pradesh, for Aadhaar-related activities in the state.
