Aadhaar, the unique identification number issued by Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is linked to the demographic & biometric information of individuals, which acts as a universal proof of identity, allowing residents to establish their credentials anywhere in India. The objective is to issue a unique identification number (UID) that can be verified & authenticated in a cost-effective manner, & which is robust enough to eliminate the duplicate & fake identities, also to help the Government achieve its goal of social justice & welfare.
This ID will be assigned on the basis of the uniqueness of the resident 's biometrics. Accordingly, the fingerprint & iris-related biometrics of each resident will be captured which will help to establish the identity of an individual correctly by linking the UID number to the demographic & biometric information.
The widespread implementation of the UID project needs the reach & flexibility to enroll residents across the country. To achieve this, the UIDAI has partnered with a variety of agencies & service providers (acting as Registrars, Sub-registrars & Enrolling Agencies) to enroll residents for UID. Alankit with its wide PAN India network is enrolling citizens across the country, thus successfully helping in the widespread implementation of the Project.
