Cut away portion, e-Aadhaar valid proofs of identity, address: UIDAI

NEW DELHI: In a bid to allay concerns of stakeholders on the validity of e-Aadhaar and cut-away portion of Aadhaar letter, UIDAItoday said either of the two will be considered a valid proof of identity and address. 

The Unique Identification Authority of India(UIDAI) which is implementing the Aadhaar project clarified in a statement that both--e-Aadhaar and cut-away portion of Aadhaar letter, is to be considered as a valid proof of identity and address. 

The Information Technology Act, 2000 provides for legal recognition of electronic records with digital signatures. Hence e-Aadhaar is to be treated as a valid document in view of the fact that it has been digitally certified, the authority said in statement. 

According to the UIDAI, the e-Aadhaar document is digitally signed, using certificate issued by NIC as per the IT Act

Further, all the data printed in e-Aadhaar is the same data as printed in Aadhaar letter, making it a valid and secured electronic document, which should be treated at par with a printed Aadhaar letter. 

A "Resident Portal" had been launched to enable the residents download their e-Aadhaar, an electronically generated Aadhaar letter, from the website of UIDAI. 

In addition, Common Service Centres, set up in states, are also catering to the needs of the residents with regards to download and printing of e-Aadhaar. 

UIDAI has been receiving complaints from residents regarding refusal of acceptance of cut away portion of Aadhaar letter as a valid document, it stated. 

The authority said the cut away portion of Aadhaar letter is as an officially valid document as it contains all the details of Aadhaar letter such as name, address, Aadhaar number, photograph and logo of the Aadhaar Project. 

It also carries a quick response (QR) code containing the demographic details of the resident, it added.

UIDAI launches Aadhaar based Iris Authentication, eKYC, One Time PIN New Services and Permanent Enrollment Centres

Developing on its vision of “Empowering residents of India with a unique identity and a digital platform to authenticate anytime, anywhere”, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) today unveiled three new Aadhaar-Enabled Services and announced the establishment of first set of permanent enrolment centres (Aadhaar Kendras). The services that were launched today are Authentication services using Iris, Authentication service using One Time Pin and eKYC (Electronic- Know Your Customer) service.
Launching the services, Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission, Shri Montek Singh Ahluwalia said, “The Aadhaar authentication and eKYC services launched today will give a boost to the use of the Aadhaar identity platform for authenticating the identity of people. This is a transformational initiative, and I am sure the Aam Aadmi will start reaping the benefits of the Aadhaar project in the near future.”
Authentication and eKYC services of UIDAI will help residents avail benefits of Aadhaar-linked services and give public/private entities an economical, secure and flexible mode of verifying user identity.
Underlining the key role these services will play in the future, Shri Nandan Nilekani, Chairman UIDAI said, “This is a major step in the direction of enabling Aadhaar holders to avail various services by using the Aadhaar identity platform. It also makes sense for various user agencies (public or private) as they can identify a beneficiary/customer using a fast, secure, economical and paperless format.”
a. Authentication service using Iris:  Residents will be able to authenticate identity for availing Aadhaar-enabled services by providing a combination of Aadhaar number + Iris image
b. Authentication service using One Time Pin (OTP): Residents will be able to authenticate identity for availing Aadhaar-enabled services by providing a combination of Aadhaar number + One Time Pin, received on their registered mobile number
c. eKYC service: Electronic verification of resident’s identity & address at his request and/or with his consent. Paperless, secure and economical.
d. Aadhaar Kendra (Permanent Enrolment Centre): Permanent enrolment Centres will facilitate enrolment of residents left out during the camps organized by the Registrars in the past. The centres will also serve as Update Centres - both for biometric and demographic update.
Aadhaar Iris Authenticationis a process wherein Aadhaar number, along with the resident’s Iris Image is submitted to UIDAI’s Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR) for verification; the CIDR verifies whether the Iris data submitted matches the Iris data available in CIDR, which had been collected during enrolment, andresponds with a “yes/no” reply.
Iris-based authentication of residents is a state-of-the-art authentication service which enables an Aadhaar holder to identify himself/herself using the Iris image. The service can be availed of by all those who have an Aadhaar number including the old, blind and those who may have undergone cataract surgery. India is the first country in the world to offer a public Iris Authentication platform and enablement of Iris Authentication for about 350 million residents, who currently hold Aadhaar numbers. This is indeed a ground-breaking technology and service development. UIDAI has conducted proof of concept (PoC) exercises involving Iris technology and concluded that more than 99% of residents could be reliably authenticated.
Aadhaar One Time Pin (OTP) Authentication:  The OTP service enables Aadhaar based authentication of all residents who registered a mobile telephone at the time of enrolment or subsequent updation. With Aadhaar OTP, residents will be able to authenticate themselves using their mobile telephone anytime, anywhere on a self service mode without having to use biometric  authentication device, which requires assisted service.
OTP authentication is a two-step process involving the mobile of a resident. In the first step a request for OTP, against an Aadhaar, is sent to UIDAI’s Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR). In response, CIDR sends a newly generated random OTP on the resident’s mobile/email. In the second step Aadhaar number, along with OTP is submitted to CIDR for verification; the CIDR verifies whether the OTP data submitted matches the generated OTP data available in CIDR andresponds with a “yes/no” reply.
User agencies that take advantage of Aadhaar authentication can use OTP to provide a single factor authentication, or in combination with biometrics to achieve a two factor authentication. This would offer higher flexibility to Authentication User Agencies in terms of deploying appropriate modality based on factors like demographics, service delivery platform and/or domain security requirements.
eKYC: The eKYC service offered by UIDAI will enable individuals to authorise service providers to receive electronic copy of their proof of identity and address. This is a first of its kind service, on any public platform. The service makes KYC instantaneous, totally secure and paperless while enhancing privacy of data. It brings business efficiency and opens doors to innovative service provision in a manner never experienced before on a comparable scale.
eKYC service can be deployed by different agencies to verify a resident’s identity and address. Only DEMOGRAPHIC information (Name, Address, Date of Birth, Gender, Photograph & Mobile Number) that is collected during Aadhaar enrolment will be shared, at the request of, and/or with the consent of the Aadhaar number holder.
Permanent Enrolment Centre: Aadhaar Kendras or Permanent enrolment Centres will facilitate the enrolment of residents left out during the camps organized by the Registrars in the past. They would also serve as Update Centres – for resident who wish to update biometric or demographic data.
Aadhaar Kendras will be located in the Common Services Centres, government buildings in block/mandal/tehsil/municipal ward office or in the official premises of the Registrar or such premises as may be expressly approved by the Registrars. Residents can also seek information about their Aadhaar generation status or get e-Aadhaar printed at these centres.
Registrars may choose to charge a convenience fee not exceeding Rs.10 for printing e-Aadhaar letter and Rs.15 for update requests. Aadhaar Enabled Service Delivery is currently or will soon be linked to various government schemes such as MNREGA wage payments, PDS distribution, payment of social security benefits such as old-age payments, distribution of LPG subsidy etc. Currently over 400 million residents have enrolled for an Aadhaar number, while about 350 million Aadhaar numbers have been issued.

Aadhar without Date of Birth – Could not be used as sole document for ID proof

The Government’s initiative to issue identification cards (Aadhar) with unique identification number (UID) to all citizens of India is really a mammoth work considering the population in India.
As per the statistics issued about Aadhar, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIAI) has spent more than Rs.2000 crores for issuing Aadhar to nearly 23 crore people.
As such the Aadhar system is stated to be one of the full-proof technology to prevent duplication.  Three biometric attributes i.e face, fingerprints and iris images of the card holder are collected to maintain uniqueness.
Government has also taken all steps to officialize Aadhar Card for its acceptance an identification card by all government as well as private authorities.
Railways has already notified Aadhar as an acceptable identification card. But Banks say Aadhar alone is not enough for opening new account as it does not contain date of birth.
However, for opening a new account Banks are not accepting Aadhar alone as a documentary proof for the reason that date of birth of the card holder is not mentioned in Aadhar.  Hence,Banks insist additional documents such as PAN to verify the date of birth.
Aadhar is supposed to eliminate an individual’s difficulty of carrying multiple identification documents.  But in this case Aadhar is not alone enough as it could not produced as a document for certifying one’s age.
Better late than never:  Many feel, mentioning date of birth in Aadhar would
not be a problem as UIAI collects date of birth of an individual in the initial application itself.  In fact the year of birth is mentioned in Aadhar.

Updating the delivery status of Aadhaar articles now a days creating a headache to the Operating Staffs and also the administrative side also. How it is known this much of article is pending in your office? simple!! Just check the indiapostweb site and you can find a huge thousands of articles pending for updating. But there are some bugs in Indian Postal Dept website. Most of the missent articles are not Updated in website ie; suppose an article numbered UGxxxxxxxxxIN received as missent at YY Office and the same is sent to the correct Post Office by YY, still this article UGxxxxxxxxxIN will be found as not delivered by YY untill the correct postoffice Updates the delivery.

To write this post we have an inspiration; One of our Spm told us that the administrative side pointed out that there are more than 144 UID articles is to be updated; which are shown as Undelivered for More Than 25 days. Among those articles only 3 or 4 article status is to be updated and up to 10-15 articles were received as missent and they have been dispatched.

But the shocking thing is more than 130 UID Aadhaar articles were not received by that office till 05/06/2012 . In the indiapost site these articles are shown as Undelivered More Than 25 days. After long waiting the Bag including article received on06/06/2012. But still these articles are in Undelivered status for more than 25 days.

Is our website is reliable source to instruct our operating staffs in the case of Aadhar Updation. A review in this regard is needed

please see these images.

image 1->This is what we can see when Undeliverd For 25 Days is selected.

image 2->This is what we can see when an article is tracked.

Aadhaar enrolments beyond 20 crore

The Cabinet Committee on Unique Identification Authority of India related issues (CC-UIDA1) today, after detailed deliberations and taking note that the purposes of UIDAI and NPR are different, agreed that the NPR and UIDAI enrolments should proceed simultaneously, with suitable provisions to eliminate avoidable overlap. The Committee approved the following modalities for the roll out of Aadhaar and NPR:

a. UIDAI will be allowed to enrol additional 40 crore residents beyond 20 crore already recommended by the EFC. 

b. In States, where UIDAI has made good progress where State/UT Governments have given commitments for Aadhaar enrolments and are planning to integrate Aadhaar with various service delivery applications, Aadhaar enrolments through Non-RGI Registrars will move at full speed within the ceiling of 60 crore (20 crore + 40 crore). A suggested list of States/UTs was also approved. 

c. The NPR enrolment will continue as envisaged, but if in the course of enrolment, a person indicates he/she is already enrolled for Aadhaar, the biometric data will not be captured by NPR. Instead the Aadhaar number/enrolment number will be recorded in NPR and the biometric data will be sourced from the UIDAI. 

d. Detailed protocols will be worked out by Inter Ministerial co-ordination Committee (IMCC) already constituted by the Ministry of Home Affairs so as to smoothly implement this simultaneous effort. 

The financial proposal relating to Aadhaar enrolments of additional 40 crore will be separately placed before the EFC. Pending this approval, UIDAI is allowed to continue Aadhaar enrolment beyond 20 crore so that the momentum of the field formations is not lost. Provision will be made in the budget for 2012-13 in anticipation thereof. 

The additional cost for enrolment and logistics pertaining to printing and delivery of Aadhaar letters in respect of the 40 crore additional enrolments will be brought before the EFC for their recommendation and to the CC-UIDAI for approval. 

The UID project is primarily aimed at ensuring inclusive growth by providing a form of identity to those who do not have any identity. It seeks to provide UID numbers to the marginalized sections of society and thus would strengthen equity. Apart from providing identity, the UID will enable better delivery of services and effective governance. 

The modalities and detailed protocol for smooth implementation of simultaneous enrolment by the Non-RGI Registry of UIDAI and the RGI will be finalized by the IMCC within the overall directions given by the CC-UIDAI. The enrolment through Non-RGI Registrars of UIDAI will be for an additional 40 crore population. 


The Unique Identification Authority' of India (UIDAI) was established in 2009 and has been mandated to issue Unique Identification (UTD) numbers to the residents of India. It may be recalled that UIDAI was constituted by the Government of India in January, 2009 as an attached office of the Planning Commission. Prime Minister's Council of UID Authority was constituted on 30th July, 2009 and its first meeting was held on 12th August, 2009. Subsequently, the Government constituted a Cabinet Committee on Unique Identification Authority' of India related issues (CC-UIDAI) in October, 2009 to look into all issues relating to UIDAI including its organization, plans, policies, programmes, schemes, funding and methodology to be adopted for achieving the objectives of the Authority. Consequent upon the creation and establishment of the Unique Identification Authority of India in 2009 for providing unique identification to the residents across the country, an estimated 17 crore enrolments have been completed by the various Registrars of UIDAI and as on 20.1.2012, 11.90 crore Aadhaar numbers generated.

Advantages after getting an Aadhaar Number / UID

The Aadhaar will become the single source of identity verification. Once residents enrol, they can use the number multiple times – they would be spared the hassle of repeatedly providing supporting identity documents each time they wish to access services such as obtaining a bank account, passport, driving license,andso on.
By providing a clear proof of identity, the Aadhaar will also facilitate entry for poor and underprivileged residents into the formal banking system, and the opportunity to avail services provided by the government and the private sector. The Aadhaar will also give migrants mobility of identity.
It will also provide governments with accurate data on residents, enable direct benefit programs, and allow government departments to coordinate investments and share information.
