“Aadhaar number will be required for the purpose of establishing the identity of the deceased for the purpose of death registration with effect from October 1," according to a notification issued by the home ministry.
In a statement, the home ministry said that if the person applying for the death certificate is not aware of the Aadhaar number or Aadhaar enrolment ID Number (EID) of the deceased, they would have to provide a certificate that the deceased does not possess Aadhaar number to the best of her or his knowledge.
The statement claimed that the Aadhaar registration will prevent identity fraud and will eliminate the need for producing multiple documents to prove identity of the deceased.
"It will provide an effective method to prevent identity fraud. It will also help in recording the identity of the deceased person. Further, it will obviate the need for producing multiple documents to prove the identity of the deceased person," it said.
The news, however, brought the otherwise lazy Friday timeline to life.
