BIOMETRIC CARD – AADHAAR CARD


BIOMETRIC CARD – AADHAAR CARD

Our Indian Government has launched a project through the Planning Commission to provide a Unique Identification to the people.  Hence, an organization UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) was formed. Mr. Nandha Nilkani is the chairman of UIDAI. He was associated with Infosys.
Aadhaar card is a biometric card given to all Indian citizens.
It has a unique 12 digit identification number.
It contains the data of ten finger prints and scanned irises of each individual.
Each center like Government Banks and Post Offices are able to upload and capture 45 -60 persons each day.
The public are getting appointment after more than 30 – 45 days.
This is due to shortage of man power and scanners.
Several applicants are forced to stand in queue for several hours from the early morning.
Passport and other ID card have a validity period but Aadhaar card has a life time validity period.
