The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is an agency of the Government of India responsible for implementing the envisioned AADHAAR a unique identification project in India. It was established in February 2009, and will own and operate the Unique Identification Number database. The authority will aim at providing a unique number to all Indians. The authority would provide a database of residents containing very simple data in biometrics.
What is Aadhaar?
Aadhaar is a 12 digit individual identification number issued by the UIDAI on behalf of Government of India.
This number will serve as a proof of identity and address, anywhere in India.
Any individual, irrespective of age and gender, who is a resident in India and satisfies the verification process laid down by UIDAI can enrol for Aadhaar.
Each individual needs to enrol only once which is free of cost.
Each Aadhaar number will be unique to an individual and will remain valid for life. Aadhaar number will help you provide access to services like banking, mobile phone connections and other Govt. and Non-Govt. services in due course.
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.
