It was learnt that a senior official from Unique Identification Authority of India had also come down to Thiruvananthapuram the other day to sort out the issue. Senior officials from state IT department would be also going to Unique Identification Authority of India office in Bengaluru soon in this regard.
Various certificates like ration card, SSLC book, driving licence, vehicle registration certificates, birth, marriage and death certificate and various certificates issued by the revenue department through the e-District facility could be issued on the spot at the single window facility.
