The UIDAI is training personnel to provide these services at home. UIDAI will be training postmen for this very purpose of delivering Aadhaar services to homes. Reports suggest that 48,000 postmen who are working for the India Post Payment Bank are being trained to take up this specific role. These postmen will get training to reach remote parts of the country to deliver services like linking Aadhaar to a mobile number, updating fundamental details, and even enrolling children into the Aadhaar database.
