Bangalore: State Extends Unique ID Project to All Districts

Bangalore, Feb 18 (IANS) The Karnataka government Thursday extended the Unique Identification (UID) number project Aadhaar to the remaining 28 districts of the state following its successful implementation in Tumkur and Mysore districts.

"The cabinet has decided to implement Aadhaar in all districts to ensure every citizen residing across the state has a UID number, which will be helpful in establishing one's identity for several benefits," the state's Higher Education Minister V.S. Acharya told reporters here.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), set up by the central government under the chairmanship of Nandan N. Nilekani, co-founder of IT bellwether Infosys Technologies Ltd, is the implementing agency in coordination with the state's e-governance department.

"The process of registering will be taken up in phases beginning with Bangalore Rural district on April 1 and in the city in May. We propose to cover the entire state by December," Acharya said.

According to the state's e-governance Principal Secretary M.N. Vidashankar, citizens above 15 years of age have to furnish documentary evidence prescribed by the authority as proof of identity, home address and date of birth under ‘know your resident information'.

"Biometric details such as photograph, fingerprints and iris (prints) will be taken during registration for preparing the UID number card. For children below 15 years, a number will be given on the basis of birth certificate and their number will be part of the parental card," Vidyashankar said.

The UID project was initiated in the state on a pilot basis in October 2010 and has covered about 650,000 people in Tumkur and Mysore districts till date.

The cabinet has also decided to implement the central Sixth Pay Commission recommendations in government and aided polytechnic colleges in the state for the teaching faculty.

"The new pay scales will be offered from April 1 to the beneficiaries and the state government will incur Rs.71 crore towards meeting the revised wage bill," Acharya pointed out.

The pay checks of the faculty in these colleges would go up by two times, he said.

The thought of having one ID is great. It works very well also in the USA which they call the SSN.
I want to know where and how I can get the same for me and my family. Thanks
