Ranchi: If you are not able to get your Aadhaar card or passport due to the lockdown, then there is good news for you. Now you can do all your Aadhar card related work by going to the post office. Passports can also be made. These services have started in both the head post offices (GPO, Main Road and GPO, Doranda) located in Rajdhani Ranchi. Apart from Ranchi, Aadhaar card centers have started in GPOs located in West Singhbhum, Dhanbad, Hazaribagh and Gumla.
From Wednesday (September 2, 2020), people have started taking advantage of this service in both the main post offices of Ranchi. These services started after the relaxation of lockdown. Now, as before, people will be able to get a new Aadhaar card, if there is any modification or update in the Aadhaar card, then they will also be able to get it done here.
Due to fear of increasing infection of Corona virus, people are leaving less than home at this time. People are moving out of their homes only when it is very important. So the crowd is less in the GPO at the moment. People working here said that there used to be a lot of crowd before. There is no crowd at this time. Probably due to Corona, people are getting out less.
Employees who are making Aadhaar cards told that earlier every day, Aadhaar cards of 200 to 250 people were made here. By noon on Wednesday, only 20 people had come, whose cards were made. The work of making passports is also going on in the GPO. People have also started getting the benefit of customer service facility.
The work of making Aadhaar and passport runs from morning to evening. People can take both these services by going there with the necessary documents. All services were shut down due to the lockdown announced on March 25, 2020 due to corona virus infection. Five months later these services have started, but people are still coming down in view of the danger of Corona.

In Ranchi GPO, Doranda Headquarters, Dhurwa SO and Khunti SO, people will also be able to get their Aadhaar card updated, that is, if there is any mistake in the card, then it can be rectified.
