UNIQUE IDENTIFICATION PROJECT IN THE U.T. OF PUDUCHERRY


        Unique Identification (UID) Project was conceived by the Planning Commission (PC) as an initiative that would provide identification for each resident across the country (starting with population below the poverty line), and also act as a tool for effective monitoring of various programmes and schemes of the Government.

             The objective of the Unique ID project is to create a Core Database (CDB) which is regularly updated and is easily accessible and used by all departments for identification of residents in the country for various purposes.  The CDB would be used for identification of individuals, enabling better delivery of various Government services and lead to better targeting of poverty alleviation and other social welfare schemes to beneficiaries providing planned services to the entire nation through inclusive banking, etc.  A possible way to ensure uniqueness of IDs (so that one resident gets only one ID) is to use biometric technologies.  In order to ensure that an individual is uniquely indentified and authenticated in an easy and cost effective manner, it is necessary to ensure that the biometric information which is captured is capable of carrying of the de-duplication at the time of collection of information.

             A State UID Implementation Committee under the Chairmanship of Chief Secretary and an Empowered Committee on UID under the Chairmanship of Lt. Governor have been constituted to oversee and guide the implementation of the UID Project in the U.T. of Puducherry.
