Speaking on the occasion, Vijayakumar said "The process is good and fast. I thank and congratulate the IT & BT Department for the good job they have done by installing the system here and making it available for the public. It is very unique and is the need of the hour. This will also help to eliminate social elements and infiltrators."

Speaking to Cityplus, Corporator Nagaraju said: "This centre has been opened to help not only the people of Jayanagar but all the citizens of Bangalore. They can submit any identfication proof to avail of the Aadhaar card free of cost. Through this procedure we can make our country corruption-free, as the Aadhaar card utilises the most sophisticated and latest way to map one's identity. We want the residents to make full use of this facility."
Asked how long the residents can avail of the facility, Nagaraju said: "We have initially opened it for two weeks. If we get more people, then we will extend the date as per requirement."
"Opening of more centres is on the cards and we are also looking out for a permanent center," he added.
