The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), a unique identification project. It was established in February 2009, and will own and operate the Unique Identification Number database.

Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique number which the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) will issue for all residents in India (on a voluntary basis). The number will be stored in a centralized database and linked to the basic demographics and biometric information – photograph, ten fingerprints and iris – of each individual. It is easily verifiable in an online, cost-effective way. It is unique and robust enough to eliminate the large number of duplicate and fake identities in government and private databases. The random number generated will be devoid of any classification based on caste, creed, religion and geography.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on 20 October 2012 launched Aadhaar Enabled Service Delivery in Dudu district of Rajasthan to mark the 2nd anniversary of Aadhaar.

With this launch of delivery system the government is going to start out Aadhaar Enabled Service Delivery initiatives in 51 districts across the countryNow, the services will 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 cylinders, etc.

A number of state governments are coming ahead to roll out for these initiatives. Currently 23 crore residents have enrolled for an Aadhaar number, of which 21 crore Aadhaar numbers have already issued.
