The UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) is the statutory body responsible for handling all Aadhaar-related services in India. It was established under the Aadhaar Act of 2016 (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services). The MeitY (Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology) under the Government of India established the UIDAI on 12th July 2016. The Aadhaar Act of 2016 has been amended to the Aadhaar and Other Laws Act of 2019, with effect from 25-7-2019.
Before the UIDAI was established as a statutory body, it was initially functioning as an office attached to the Planning Commission (which is now known as NITI Aayog). On 12th September 2015, the government revised it to bring the UIDAI under the DeitY (Department of Electronics and Information Technology).
The UIDAI was created to issue Unique Identification Numbers (UID) popularly known as Aadhaar number to all residents of India. The UID serves to eliminate fake and duplicate identities while providing government services and service providers with an easy and cost-effective way to verify authentication.
The first UID number in India was issued way back in 2010. On 29th September 2010, a resident in the rural district of Nandurbar, Maharashtra, became the first Indian to receive a UID. As of July 2018, 1.22 billion Indians were enrolled in Aadhaar.
As per the Aadhaar Act of 2016, the UIDAI is the sole body responsible for the Aadhaar enrolment of residents and authentication. It oversees the entire Aadhaar life cycle, including operation, management, developing the various policies, implementing various procedures, and more.
Here are the major functions of the UIDAI:
The UIDAI is headquartered in New Delhi and has eight Regional Offices at key cities across the country. UIDAI stores data in a secure and sophisticated data centres located in Manesar, a model township in Haryana and Hebbal, Bengaluru.
UIDAI has two part-time members and a CEO, who is the Member-Secretary of the organisation. The chairman position is intentionally left vacant. One of the part-time members is Dr. Anand Deshpande, the Founder, MD and Chairman of Persistent Systems. The legal representative and administrative head of the UIDAI is Sh Pankaj Kumar, IAS, who also acts as the CEO.
The CEO of UIDAI is assisted by seven DDGs (Deputy Director Generals) and joint secretaries. The DDGs are further assisted by ADGs, Deputy Directors, Section Officers and Assistant Section Officers. The total strength of the headquarters is 127 officers and other staff members.
The Regional Offices of the UIDAI are present at:
The Aadhaar number provides residents with a unique identity. It prevents fake and duplicate identities. It can be easily authenticated and verified anytime and from anywhere. The Government of India issued a letter on 16th December 2010, stating that the Aadhaar number issued by the UIDAI serves as a valid document for identity proof and address proof. However, you have to note that the Aadhaar was not intended to replace any of the present government-issued documents. It does not give rights to citizenship to cardholders.
The UIDAI Ushers in a New Era of Identification
With the Aadhaar number, the UIDAI has ushered in a sophisticated and technology-oriented method of identification and authentication for millions of Indians. Using the UIDAI website is quite easy, thanks to its easy-to-navigate layout and user-intuitiveness. According to the latest data provided by the Government of India, nearly 1.22 billion residents in India are registered for Aadhaar. As of February 2015, the government has spent 5630 crores on Aadhaar and UIDAI.
