Aadhaar Unique Identification Number http://uidai.gov.in/
What is Aadhaar?• Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique number which the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) will issue for all residents. The number will be stored in a centralised database and linked to the basic demographics and biometric information – photograph, ten fingerprints and iris – of each individual. The details of the data fields and verification procedures are available here.Aadhaar will be:• Easily verifiable in an online, cost-effective way• Unique and robust enough to eliminate the large number of duplicate and fake identities in government and private databases• A random number generated, devoid of any classification based on caste, creed, religion and geography
Why Aadhaar?• Aadhaar-based identification will have two unique features:• Universality, which is ensured because Aadhaar will over time be recognized and accepted across the country and across all service providers.• Every residents entitlement to the number.• The number will consequently form the basic, universal identity infrastructure over which Registrars and Agencies across the country can build their identity-based applications.• Unique Identification of India (UIDAI) will build partnerships with various Registrars across the country to enrol residents for the number. Such Registrars may include state governments, state Public Sector Units (PSUs), banks, telecom companies, etc. These Registrars may in turn partner with enrolling agencies to enroll residents into Aadhaar.• Aadhaar will ensure increased trust between public and private agencies and residents. Once residents enrol for Aadhaar, service providers will no longer face the problem of performing repeated Know Your Customer (KYC) checks before providing services. They would no longer have to deny services to residents without identification documents. Residents would also be spared the trouble of repeatedly proving identity through documents each time they wish to access services such as obtaining a bank account, passport, or driving license etc.
Why Aadhaar?• By providing a clear proof of identity, Aadhaar will empower poor and underprivileged residents in accessing services such as the formal banking system and give them the opportunity to easily avail various other services provided by the Government and the private sector. The centralized technology infrastructure of the UIDAI will enable anytime, anywhere, anyhow authentication. Aadhaar will thus give migrants mobility of identity. Aadhaar authentication can be done both offline and online, online authentication through a cell phone or land line connection will allow residents to verify their identity remotely. Remotely, online Aadhaar -linked identity verification will give poor and rural residents the same flexibility that urban non-poor residents presently have in verifying their identity and accessing services such as banking and retail. Aadhaar will also demand proper verification prior to enrolment, while ensuring inclusion. Existing identity databases in India are fraught with problems of fraud and duplicate or ghost beneficiaries. To prevent these problems from seeping into the Aadhaar database, the UIDAI plans to enrol residents into its database with proper verification of their demographic and biometric information. This will ensure that the data collected is clean from the beginning of the program. However, much of the poor and under-privileged population lack identity documents and Aadhaar may be the first form of identification they will have access to. The UIDAI will ensure that its Know Your Resident (KYR) standards do not become a barrier for enrolling the poor and has accordingly developed an Introducer system for residents who lack documentation. Through this system, authorized individuals (Introducers) who already have an Aadhaar, can introduce residents who dont have any identification documents, enabling them to receive their Aadhaar.
Who can get an Aadhaar?An individual who is a resident in Indiaand satisfies the verification process laiddown by the UIDAI can get an Aadhaar.
How to get an Aadhaar?• The process to get an Aadhaar will be circulated by the local media upon which residents need to go to the nearest Enrolment Camp to register for an Aadhaar. The resident primarily needs to carry certain documents which will be specified in the media advertisement.• Upon registering for Aadhaar, residents will go through a biometric scanning of ten fingerprints and iris. They will then be photographed and given an enrolment number upon completion. Depending on the enrolment agency, residents will be issued an Aadhaar number within 60 to 90 days.
Contact Centre Details• The UIDAI has set up a Contact Centre.• The users of this system are expected to be residents, registrars and enrolment agencies.• Any resident seeking enrolment is given a printed acknowledgement form with an Enrolment Number, that enables the resident to make queries about her/his enrolment status through any communication channel of the contact centre. ►Voice – 1800-180-1947 ►Fax – 080-2353 1947 ►Letters – PO Box 1947, GPO Bangalore - 560001 ►Email - email@example.com
