Launch of Aadhaar (UIDAI) project in Chennai, Tamilnadu

Aadhaar or UIDAI project has started in Chennai recently and people are opting for the same to get their unique number which may become mandatory proof for many things like for opening bank account, read on to find out more details about this project

The long awaited project of getting a unique number for every individual has now come true by the launch of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) renamed as Aadhaar at Chennai, Tamilnadu. Registration of details for this unique number can be done at various institutions identified for this purpose which includes few selected branches of Indian Overseas Bank (IOB), State Bank of India, Indian Bank, LIC and other 34 PSUs which is a nation level project.

This new Unique ID in the form of Aadhaar card will be considered for applying ration card in the future and starting from joining in school for a new born till the loan request this will be considered as a proof and will be made compulsory too, which records the complete demographic and biometric details of an individual like name, age, sex, location etc which will become primary ID card of an Indian Citizen which can be used anywhere in India.

Banks are the best supporting agents in this project due to the wide network spread out throughout the state and country in deep rural areas too. Further it will also help in opening new bank accounts instantly as the new forms will mandate the 12 digit Aadhaar number or UIDAI number to be specified exclusively in a column provided for it separately.

With the implementation and issue of such unique number the number of cases on fake degree will come to a halt is what being trusted as this number will play a major role in dealing with academics details and while getting scholarship or education loans under various schemes.

Children in the age range of 5 to 15 will be undergoing iris scanning too and the children below this age will be given these number initially later on when they get to the age of 5 their biometric identification will be done.

So its lies in the time to tell us how useful or how adverse it's going to be in the coming days as when people are giving support to this project on the other side there are people who are skeptical about this project as they claim this is a way of building database which can prove to be dangerous and should not be mandated, whoever feels this is safe can go for it and should be given option to other government scheme without having this Aadhaar number also as there are already enough proof for an individual such as ration card, passport, voter ID and so on.
