  1. The Govt offices in West Bengal generally speaking have an attitude of arrogance and it is a humiliating experience to visit one of them. I wonder Why there are no private Enrolment Centres in Kolkata area like there are so many in Mumbai.WHY??

  2. I have an address proof of Agra and I want to apply in Pune. Can I do that as I stay on rent in Pune so I don’t have any residence proof of Pune?

    • Hi Shrasthi,
      You can go to aadhar card center with rent agreement and your agra proof. But it depends on the type of rent agreement you have, otherwise you need to show any bank account address proof
