GUIRIM: Saligao MLA Jayesh Salgaonkar has made arrangements for the residents of Guirim to make corrections in their aadhar cards, at the panchayat hall.
The residents of Guirim have to travel to Mapusa, Panaji or Provorim and waste hours for carrying out corrections in their aadhar cards and making new aadhar cards.
To provide relief to the locals, the local MLA has made arrangements for making new aadhar cards and carrying out corrections if any at the panchayat office.
This facility will be available till August 15.
The residents said that three days are not sufficient as there are more than 6,000 residents here and the officials cater to only 120 people per day, and that would be 360 people in three days. So, we demand that the facility be made available for more days.
When contacted, Salgaonkar said that “this arrangement has been done only for carrying out corrections in the aadhar cards as the officials have made a lot of mistakes while printing the cards. The this facility will be provided to all in the Saligao constituency. Presently, the facility is made available in Guirim, then Saligao, followed by Sangolda, Nerul, Pilerne and Verem. People in these areas will have 3 days’ time. If required then arrangements for more days will also be made later on.”
