Guwahati: City based journalists will get an opportunity to enroll their names in Aadhaar at the city centre adjacent to Guwahati Press Club for five days starting from the first day of 2019 thanks to the initiative of Kamrup (Metro) district administration. Interested media families may arrive at the centre (office of the assistant director of Handloom & Textiles, Ambari, GN Bordoloi Path, Guwahati- 781001) during the office hours (11 am to 5 pm on 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 January 2019) for enrolling their names in the unique identification number process.
