Recently the UIDAI has updated its e-KYC response which meant that if the date of birth in UIDAI is recorded as ‘declared or approximate’then only the year of birth was being shared on ESIC Aadhaar Seeding application. Accordingly, the ICT, Hqrs. team developed and updated the ESIC Portal. Now, the users can select the date and month in (Date/MM) at the time of seeding Aadhaar details based on available documentary evidence. When the declared Date of Birth matches with the same details in ESIC records, Aadhar will be seeded. In case of mismatch an update IP details request will be generated for approval as per existing system.
In view of the above it is directed that on the updated ESIC Aadhaar Seeding application, in cases where only Year is visible in date of birth column after seeding Aadhaar details, the functionary who is doing the Aadhaar seeding work will enter the date and month in appropriate column on the basis of Aadhar Card or other documentary evidence of IP/Beneficiary and Aadhar number will be seeded. However, such cases will be marked distinctly in profile of IP as declared Date of Birth which may be subject to verification at the time of service delivery or as and when required. All blank cases of Aadhaar mismatch requests of last 15 days have been deleted from backend and all such IPs may be approached again for seeding of their Aadhar No. in ESIC portal.
