In a complaint filed in the State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR) wherein a 10-year old differently-abled child was unable to get an Aadhaar card, the SCPCR chairperson has sent a letter to the secretary of information and technology (NIC) regarding the services given to them.
It is being stated that Rizwan Ali, who lives near Vasant Vihar is afflicted by severe physical disability which is why he was not able to secure an Aadhaar card. The father of the child is a labourer. His family approached a local NGO stating their problem, adding that they were facing some isues in getting ration since Rizwan does not have an Aadhaar card.
The SCPCR chairperson Usha Negi said, “We have sent a letter to the secretary, seeking a response in the matter within a week. The Aadhaar card is very important for specially abled children also to access any government service.”
