An introduction to UID card project

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) was established in February 2009. These cards are based on smart card technology and are not only for the identification of Indian citizens but for the NRIs and foreigners also.

THE UNIQUE identification card is an ambitious flagship project of government of India. It is a huge exercise to identify each and every citizen of India.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) was established in February 2009 as a part of planning commission and headed by Nandan Nilekani. It will issue the UID card and own, operate and maintain the unique identification number database.

No government agency will interfere in the planning, implication or any other process of UIDAI. The authority will work directly under the observation of PMO. These cards are not only for the identification of Indian citizens but for the NRIs, and foreigners also.

Those foreigners, who are working in any ministry/ embassy, any corporate body or visitors, will get separate UID cards. The UID card is based on smart card technology, a 16 digit randomly allotted number will be printed on the card, which will ensure the identity of a particular person.

The UID number will be based on, both personal and biometric information of a person, such as, name, sex, father and mother’s name, DOB, POB, nationality, marital status, spouse name, current and permanent address, work occupation, photo and fingerprints. UID card will be issued to every individual of above fifteen years.

UID card will be issued to every individual of above fifteen years. The identity card has a 16kb microprocessor chip that will contain all the information and will be secured against card tampering and cloning. The UIDAI will get all this data from National Population Register, which will be created to maintain the database collected by census. The NPR will work as a comprehensive and credible identity database for country. Once the database would be finalized, the UIDAI will start issuing UID cards after 6-8 months. The UID number will be added in National Population Register. The NPR would be authentically updated on the minute basis, this way it will keep information about a particular person from birth to death.

What are the features and benefits of AADHAAR ?

  • One Aadhaar: 1 beneficiary: Aadhaar/ UID Card  is a unique number, and no resident can have a duplicate number since it is linked to their individual biometrics; thereby identifying fake and ghost identities which result in leakages today. Savings from eliminating duplicates and fakes through Aadhaar-based identification will further enable governments to expand benefits to other eligible residents.
  • Portability: Aadhaar is a universal number, and agencies and services can contact the central Unique Identification database from anywhere in the country to confirm a beneficiary’s identity.
  • Inclusion of those without any existing identity documents: A problem in reaching benefits to poor and marginalized residents is that they often lack the identification documents they need to receive State benefits; the ‘Introducer’ system which has been approved for data verification for the UIDAI will enable such residents to establish an identity.
  • Electronic benefit transfers: The UID-enabled-Bank-Account network will offer a secure and low cost platform to directly remit benefits to residents without the heavy costs associated today with benefit distribution; the leakages in the current system will also be stemmed as a result.
  • Aadhaar -based authentication to confirm entitlement delivered to the beneficiary: the UIDAI will offer online authentication services for agencies who wish to validate a resident’s identity; this service will enable confirmation of the entitlement actually reaching the intended beneficiary.
  • Improved services through increased transparency: Clear accountability and transparent monitoring would significantly improve access and quality of entitlements to beneficiaries and the agency alike
  • Self-service puts residents in control: Using Aadhaar/UID Card  as an authentication mechanism, residents should be able to access up-to-date information about their entitlements, demand services and redress their grievances directly from their mobile phone, kiosks or other means. In the case of self-service on the resident’s mobile, security is assured using two-factor authentication (i.e. by proving possession of the resident’s registered Mobile Number and knowledge of the resident’s Aadhaar PIN). These standards are compliant with the Reserve Bank of India’s approved standards for Mobile Banking and Payments.
