The UIDAI was established as an attached office of the Planning Commission to implement the UID scheme. Its primary responsibility was to maintain a UID database and to implement the UID scheme. This database contains biometric details of individuals living in India. In addition, the UIDAI was given the responsibility of updating the database.
eAadhaar is a biometric update
If you want to update your biometric data in your Aadhaar, you have to pay a fee. The fee is Rs. 50 for adults and Rs. 15 for children. You can update your biometric data once, or as many times as you want, as long as you pay the fee every time.
After the authentication process, your biometric data is recorded in the UIDAI database. It is secured by using encryption so it cannot be leaked in transit. The UIDAI claims it has a comprehensive security policy, and it imposes severe punishments for tampering with data or disclosing identity information.
UIDAI is a statutory authority
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is a statutory authority under the Aadhaar Act 2016. The UIDAI is an attached office of the Planning Commission and the NITI Aayog, and it works as a central government body. The UIDAI has the responsibility of implementing the UID scheme. In this regard, it has the mandate of creating its own UID database and ensuring that it is updated.
The UIDAI has a difficult task ahead of it. The agency has not yet reached its target of enrolling 600 million people within 24 months. While there may be reasons behind this, UIDAI has made important progress in the interim period. In this regard, the Union Cabinet has escalated the UIDAI’s legal status and has announced that the agency will become a Statutory Authority (SA).
Cost-benefit analysis of UIDAI
The cost-benefit analysis of UIDAI, which has been widely publicised, is misleading. The study relies on estimates and assumptions that are often out-of-date and unreliable. Further, it fails to consider alternatives to UID that could reduce the costs associated with its implementation.
One problem with UIDAI’s design is that the project is not scale-ready. It was created with the intention of covering the entire population of India. The problem is that case studies presented here have only a small number of comparisons. In reality, there are 7.9×1017 comparisons required for the entire population of India.
The UIDAI online portal is an important tool to identify your identity online. You can verify your email id and mobile number using this online facility. The process is seamless, thanks to the UIDAI’s new security measures. These measures aim to ensure that your identity data is always secure. They also help eliminate data duplication and clashes on the servers.
In addition to verifying your identity, the UIDAI online portal allows you to change your address. Once you have entered your OTP, select the address proof update option and upload your digital address proof. After you have uploaded your proof, enter your personal details. Valid address proofs include a passport, bank passbook, driving license, etc.
The UIDAI is a statutory authority under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has a network of regional offices across the country. Its headquarters has a sanctioned strength of 127 officers, including the CEO and seven Deputy Directors General. These officers are assisted by Assistant Directors General and Section Officers. The UIDAI Regional offices are headed by a Deputy Director General and their support structures include Assistant Directors General, Section Officers, and Senior Accounts Officers.
UIDAI also has a contact center, which aims to resolve citizen complaints and questions related to the Aadhaar. The Contact Center operator will provide written confirmation of the complaint registration, and will follow up directly with the complainant. Alternatively, citizens can submit their complaints through the mail or post to the UIDAI regional offices. The complaints will be reviewed by a public grievance officer and a response will be sent to the complainant.
As a registrar, you have a number of responsibilities. For instance, you must adhere to the UIDAI standards in all aspects of your work. You must use UIDAI-approved devices and technology, and follow processes that are compliant with the statutory guidelines. You must also ensure that all of your enrolment processes follow a strict timeline.
The Registrar must ensure that he or she is using the information collected during the enrolment process only for the purposes of the UIDAI’s mission. Registrars are also responsible for monitoring and auditing field level activities. They must also ensure that the data collected during enrolment is accurate. In addition, they may hire field-level manpower from third-party agencies, which are approved by the Authority.
