UID included among PSC list of Id cards

Aadhar, UID card Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala Public Service Commission has decided to include Aadhar cards among the identification certificates that have to be submitted by applicants along with seven other new documents. The total number of identity proofs accepted by PSC has been raised to 15 from the existing seven.

The new set of documents would be accepted by the PSC from candidates appearing for examinations, interviews, practical examinations, physical tests and for certificate verification from January 1, 2012 onwards. Earlier this year, the PSC had made it mandatory to produce ID cards with photographs due to allegations of forgery by candidates. The identity certificated approved by the PSC till now were Voters ID card, driving license, passport, PAN card, Id cards issued by government offices, passbooks of nationalized banks with photographs, ID cards issued by physically challenged by Social Welfare Board. These cards are still valid. It was found that applying for PSC jobs remained out of bounds for many for lack of access to these documents, prompting the PSC to include 8 more.
