"Not Feasible To Merge UID, NPR Projects"
(Friday, January 13, 2012 2:58:58 PM IST)
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is now waiting for approval from the Union Cabinet for Aadhaar enrollments beyond 200 million residents. The basis of seeking the approval is that there was a fundamental difference between this scheme's objective and the National Population Register (NPR) of the home ministry. The Authority feels that the convergence of the two projects would not be feasible. The objective of the Aadhaar project was to provide a proof of identity to all residents so that delivery of social welfare programmes could be improved. NPR's objective, on the other hand, is enhancing national security. [Via HT]

Aadhaar No. May Soon Be Linked To Railway Tickets
(Friday, January 13, 2012 12:46:49 PM IST)
R S Sharma, director general of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), says the Authority may soon link the Aadhaar (or UID) number with railway tickets. With this move, establishment of the identity will become easier in case of any mishap. "A high-powered committee is working to try out different applications of Aadhaar numbers. The beginning has been made with different welfare schemes of the government by linking the Aadhaar number with bank accounts. Once the bank account is opened, cash transactions with the account for unlettered persons will become easy. Transfer of cash subsidy on LGP cylinders, grains of public distribution system and fertilisers directly to the account of the beneficiary and payment of MGNREGA wage are being experimented," Sharma told TOI.
