ESIC vide circular dated 04.10.2023 has issued clarification regarding Aadhar seeding in respect of Insured persons and their family members. It has been observed that progress of Aadhar seeding is not satisfactory and the field offices are not able to achieve the daily targets fixed for them. Field offices have frequently raised issues relating to the OTP based authentication citing the reasons like nonreceipt of OTP, change of mobile number by IPs etc.
In view of the above, the matter has been examined at Headquarters and it has been decided that in addition to OTP based authentication, biometric authentication should also be introduced to speed up Aadhar seeding in respect of insured persons and their dependents. The ICT Division has developed an application for the same which will be made available shortly.
