Thumbs up Unique Identification Project



Website: http://www.uidai.gov.in/

From Wikipedia:

The Multipurpose National Identity Card (MNIC) project is an initiative of the Indian government to create a national ID for every Indian citizen with the objective of increasing national security, managing citizen identity and facilitating e-governance.

From UIDAI's website:

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has been created as an attached office under the Planning Commission. Its role is to develop and implement the necessary institutional, technical and legal infrastructure to issue unique identity numbers to Indian residents.

On June 25th 2009, the Cabinet also created and approved the position of the Chairperson of the UIDAI, and appointed Mr. Nandan Nilekani as the first Chairperson in the rank and status of a Cabinet Minister. Mr. Ram Sewak Sharma has been appointed the Director General.

The Mission
The role that the Authority envisions is to issue a unique identification number (UID) that can be verified and authenticated in an online, cost-effective manner, and that is robust enough to eliminate duplicate and fake identities.

The Timelines
The first UID numbers will be issued over the next 12-18 months counted from August 2009. The first number would be issued between August 2010 to February 2011. Over five years, the Authority plans to issue 600 million UIDs. The numbers will be issued through various ‘registrar’ agencies across the country.

________________

I feel this project comes into one of the best infrastructure projects in India. This deserves a thread here. As it serves many purposes our society is facing in security and other accountability issues.

Yeah. He quickly realized that to have any clout in government, one needs a Cabinet Minister title. He seems like the right person for this project. Let's see how this goes.

Unique ID plan to start from Karnataka
Quote:
BANGALORE: Unique Identification Authority of India has chosen Karnataka for the pilot implementation of its ambitious Unique Identity Number (UIN) project. On Saturday, UIAI chief Nandan Nilekani held a meeting with state’s chief secretary Sudhakar Rao and other officers.

Rao said: ‘‘He has discussed about the project with different departments of the Union government and is now interacting with state level officials. He expressed his desire to start the pilot project in Karnataka. We’ve happily agreed for it. Our e-governance principal secretary M N Vidyashankar will be the state’s nodal officer for the pilot project.’’

Vidyashankar said the UIN project will ensure that every Indian will have a unique 16-digit number, which will act as their identification proof. The smart card issued will have identification details like name, sex, address, marital status, photo, identification mark and finger biometrics of a person.

Interesting interview.

What's an identification mark? (from the article above) and why 16 digit #? You can have a 9 digit # since the population is over a billion. What's the point in having such a long # that you can't even memorize it?

I hope it is not too long and carries a good name. UID or unique ID is lame. they should have some local touch to it.
Also they can make it 9 digits if they want to. just replace few of the numbers with letters.
16 digit is way too much.

Future growth. 1 or 2 Check digit(s).

What are you going to lose in having a few more digits? Do we want a repeat of something similar to the Y2K issue? There needs to be some foresight.

Not everyone can read English characters. But most people can read numbers. Numbers can also be entered easily on a telephone keypad or at an automated kiosk (like an ATM), compared to English characters.

What's Next for India's Epic UID Project?

Quote:
The country's ambitious citizen identification project is moving ahead despite some concerns.

India's ambitious Unique Identification Card (UID) project is expected to improve security once it is issued to all citizens in the country. Unique Identification Authority of India’s (UIDAI) task is to create the world’s largest biometric database. To collect pictures and fingerprints of 1.2 billion people is a huge task that will go on for years.

About 600 million people, or half of India's population are likely to get “Unique Identification Numbers (UIN)” within the next five years, as per UIDAI. This will sync all the different aspects of Indian Citizens, like passports, ration cards, pan cards (for permanent account number, required for financial transactions in India) and the like. This project is expected to be a turning point for India’s automation and e-governance efforts.

The Government of India has already approved the proposal to use multi-application smart cards with UIDs for citizens to facilitate easy verification and access to government or private services, while also helping welfare programs reach intended beneficiaries, and serving as a basis for e-Governance.

UID will contain details including name, gender, address, marital status, photo, identification mark and finger biometrics by 2011. The UIN will be based on a sophisticated application called Smart Card Operating System for Transport Applications (SCOSTA), a secured electronic device that is used for keeping data and other information in a way that only authorized persons can view it. It can be used as a voter I-card or as proof for opening a bank account, among other things.

The Empowered Group of Ministers (EGOM) headed by the External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherji has approved the setting up of a UID Authority for this purpose.

Many countries have either a card or a number as national identity—such as the U.S. Social Security Number for citizens, China and Hong Kong with ID cards, and South Korea with a 13-digit ID number—but India is the first country to begin a biometrics-based, multi-purpose ID number verifiable online on such a grand scale.

Security concerns

However, the National Informatics Centre (NIC) has raised concerns over privacy and security of the proposed UID database. NIC states, “It has been proposed to hire the data centre services for PoC (proof-of-concept) and prototype on rental basis. It is presumed that the data related to UID will be hosted in a government Data Centre. If not, the issues related to privacy and security with respect to UID data may require to be taken into consideration.”

Secrecy fears over the UID project blazed up after its confidential working paper was leaked onto the Internet. Titled “Creating a Unique Identity Number for Every Resident in India,” the leaked document reveals in-depth details about the government project to reach 1.2 billion citizens—an undertaking on a scale never tried before in the world.

As with centralized citizen ID programs in other countries, critics fear the $4 billion project threatens privacy, as well as being vulnerable to hackers, crooks and governmental misuse. They call the leaked document a sign of security risks to come.

Whether the UID will solve problems or become a problem, global information technology companies seem to think it will be profitable. Google, IBM, Microsoft, Yahoo and India’s own Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys are lobbying the government for slices of the pie. Yahoo chief executive officer Carol Bartz has recently met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, fishing for her company’s involvement in the project.

Dr. Nandan Nilekani, chairman of the UIDAI who was the ex-chief executive officer and co-founder of Infosys, holds the view that the UID number will be useful in improving security once it is issued to all citizens in the country.

Nandan, 54, among the 100 most influential people in the world in Time magazine’s 2006 list, has his work cut out in a project whose scale he says is 10 times larger than anything similar elsewhere in the world. He estimates needing thousands of servers to verify billions of sets of biometric data for hundreds of thousands of requests every second.

PAN/UID link

Banking heavily on the use of biometrics, the Indian government has announced plans to link the ten-digit Permanent Account Number (PAN) and the 16-digit UID Number.

The decision is coming following lengthy talks between the Finance Ministry, which is overseeing the creation and distribution of the PAN cards, and the UIDI. “We are having discussions with the finance ministry. Both projects will be using biometrics, so it is a good choice,” the UIDAI chairman said.

Under the proposal, the PAN card infrastructure will be used by the UIDAI for data collection and enrollment of citizens. Further, the UID number will be embedded in new PAN cards, while earlier PAN cardholders will be sent a letter with their UID number.

For the Biometric PAN cards, tax authorities were planning to capture the fingerprints of four fingers of an individual—two from each hand; along with the face (with the eyes fully visible), the UIDI is expected to use only fingerprints.

Seven firms including Infosys, HCL, Tata Consultancy Services and its subsidiary CMC and Electronics Corporation of India Ltd, ITI and Bharat Electronics were shortlisted for the project.

In the initial years, the department plans to issue biometric PAN cards to new applicants and those seeking a re-issue. It would be extended to existing cardholders later. Nilekani has said that once all new applicants move to the UID-backed platform, existing PAN card holders can be given a specific timeframe of say, two years, to migrate.

The UID partners would be public and private service providers such as banks, insurance companies, hotels, airlines and other business. After registering with the UIDAI and making their computer systems compatible, business establishments can receive online confirmation of their customers’ UID number in a “yes” or “no” format.

N Vittal to head UID demographic data standards panel

Quote:
The trail-blazing initiative to provide unique identification number to all citizens of the country has picked up feverish momentum lately.

On his part, Unique identification Authority of India (UIDAI) Chairman Nandan M Nilekani has been travelling across length and breadth, meeting stakeholders to prepare them for the massive exercise sensitising them on the onerous mission.

The UIDAI, likewise, has also been equally busy under Director General & Mission Director R S Sharma putting in place various panels to meet its mammoth task.

In pursuit of this ambitious goal, the UIDAI has now formed two committees to ensure the authority meets its mandate within the timeline it has set for itself.

The authority has set up a nine member Biometric Strandards Committee headed by National Informatics Centre Chairman B K Gairola. Likewise, it has also constituted a 16-member Demographic Data Standards & Verification Procedure Committee with former Central Vigilance Commissioner N Vittal as Chairman. The Gairola panel will also have ICICI’s Pravir Vora, Registrar General of India’s C Chandramauli, RBI’s A M Padagaonkar, among others including IIT Bombay and Kharagpur faculty.

Vittal will spearhead the team comprising ICICI Securities’ Madhavi Puri Buch, Department of Information Technology’s S R Rao, Hyerabad Rural Development Principal Secretary K Raju, and other officials drawn from New Delhi, Assam, Jharkhand, including IIM Lucknow faculty.

According to Sharma the charter of biometric standards committee is to ensure interoperability of devices, systems and process used by various agencies that use the UID system. The key requirement of UID is to minimise/eliminate duplicate UIDs and improve the efficacy of service delivery.

Review standards

The committee before framing the standards will review existing standards and modify/enhance them to achieve the goals for de-duplications and authentication.

Similarly, the demographic data standards panel will review existing ones and refine it to meet the purpose of UIDAI. The two panels, in turn, can set up technical committee and working groups for conducting/developing proof of concept studies. Both the panels have been given 90 days time to submit their final report, Sharma said.

Incidentally, from July to November, Nilekani, besides meeting various ministries, has held audiences with Planning Commission, Chief Information Commissioner, Chief Vigilance Commissioner, various State including Karnataka, besides IRDA, RBI, Venture Capitalists, and other financial institutions sharing and gathering inputs.

UIDAI has a poser; want to give it a try?

Quote:
BANGALORE: Want a piece of action from the nation’s biggest and most challenging IT project? Here’s your chance: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has thrown the first challenge which it calls the ‘introducer problem’ to the public and has sought innovative solutions.

UIDAI is in the process of contemplating “certain challenging situations” that it might face in the implementation of the ambitious project which envisages a unique identification number to every Indian citizen.

It will be posing a series of challenges and seeking solutions from the public.

The present poser is related to ‘introducer system’ that has been detailed out in the demographic data standards and verification procedure committee report in the committees tab of the UIDAI website. Probable reactions/solutions can be sent to webadminuidai@nic.in.

To get a UID, a person goes to a registration booth being operated by some agency, to get registered. If he/ she has some documentary proof of his/her identity, he/she produces that before the registrar. He/she may also produce another proof of his address. If both these documents are found satisfactory, the registrar will collect the details and biometrics of the person (photo, fingerprints and possibly retinal scan also).

For those who do not possess any documentary proof of their identity or address, there is another mechanism which has been put in place.

This is called the ‘introducer based verification system’ similar to opening a bank account.

Stating the problem, the UIDAI says, “Now the problem is, suppose we have an authorised introducer X who is ready to introduce Y. Y goes to a particular registrar and says that he would like to be registered for a UID. He claims that X, who is authorised to introduce (and also has UID) is ready to introduce him.

If X is also physically present at the place of enrolment, X can give his biometric and introduction process can become foolproof incorporating the nonrepudiation aspect too. However, this will require physical presence of X at the registration site which may be difficult and inconvenient, especially when introduction is purely voluntary.” “In this situation, can we evolve a communication protocol preferably using mobile (one can assume that both the registrar and the introducer will have the mobile phone) or any other system so that the introducer’s physical presence can be dispensed with, while not compromising the authenticity of introduction?” UIDAI asks on its website.

“We should also not require immediate response from the introducer as the registration process is going on.

He can respond a little later also, if he feels somebody has misused the facility. This is possible because UIDs are not going to be issued in real time and will take overnight,” it adds.

UIDAI ensures unique ID isn’t cracked by enterprising frauds
Quote:
In the works is a slew of measures that would plug systemic loopholes which cheats, criminals and sundry others had hitherto been taking to grease their way into possessing dual identities, be it multiple passports, ration cards, credit cards and PAC cards. In other words, the UIDAI is attempting what no other authority in Indian governance has tried before: the road to obtaining an ID cannot be paved by cheating or bribing.
Unique ID authority will charge fee for data
Quote:
The enrolment cost, under the ambitious Unique Identification (UID) project, is expected to cost a whopping Rs 3,000 crore, according to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), spearheaded by Chairman Nandan Nilekani. Further, enrolment of each resident is likely to cost between Rs 20 to Rs 25.

As a result, to meet the humongous cost, the authority, will levy transaction fee on potential user agencies availing its services. According to the confidential UIDAI working paper, made available to Deccan Herald, while it will provide authentication services to government agencies at subsidised rate, other user agencies would be levied transaction fee.

The authority proposes to provide chargeable authentication services of two types — address verification and biometrics confirmation. While for airlines it would offer free service for basic ID confirmation, banks, would have to pay Rs 5 for address verification for account opening, and credit card companies Rs 10 for biometrics confirmation.

Revenue scenarios

Likewise, projecting possible scenarios of steady income from service fee, it estimates total annual revenue of Rs 288.15 crore. From address verification Rs 159.55 crore and from biometric confirmation Rs 128.60 crore.

According to preliminary projections, from new mobile connections it expects Rs 19.59 crore, from PAN cards Rs 1.20 crore, from gas connections by PSUs Rs 1.50 crore, from passports Rs 6 lakh, from new LIC policies Rs 10.16 crore, from credit cards Rs 70 lakh, from bank accounts Rs 11.55 crore.

Justifying levying service charges, the authority says, it takes both government agencies and private sector firms anywhere between Rs 100 to Rs 500 for address verification. Furthermore, it is usually done through physical visit besides another enquiry to confirm information provided. Hence, address authentication service by UIDAI will be valuable one.

Big ticket savings

Similarly, it observes that, issuing credit card or granting a loan, needs confirmation of resident’s identity, involving submission of photographs and other documentation.
With UIDAI, however, the agency (card companies / banks) can send scanned photograph or fingerprint (based on security level required) together with other demographic details to confirm identity.

Incidentally, the authority says, the revolutionary single, universal ID number by eliminating fraud and duplicate identities, will save the government exchequer upwards of Rs 20,000 crore annually.

Citing an example, it says Ministry of Petrolum & Natural Gas can save over Rs 1,200 crore a year in subsidies reportedly lost on LPG cylinders registered under duplicate or ghost identities.
‘Prayers’ will ensure smooth implementation of UID project within stipulated time, budget: Nilekani
Quote:
The UIAI has been tasked to create a national database of identity details of citizens and is probably the largest database of citizens in the world.

He said: “It’s a mammoth task. The database of citizens in the country will be 10 times the only project of this kind, which is 120 million.”

The benefits of this project clearly outweighs the initial investment and baseless security risks. I only hope these politicians and their kin who are major stakeholders of fake identity and tax evasion will not apply pressure at the center to drop the project in the middle.
Prey god for the success of this project without any drawbacks.

Once the system is in place slowly each one of the departments will be forced by the people and center to adapt to UID. In countries where this UID is in place, slowly moved every one of their system to UID. Even dvd rentals in Sweden happen on the basis of UID. Land registrations are too big a thing, with lot of resistance from beaurocracy, eventually everything moves towards UID. It is such a luxury to have this that in just an year of its existence one will think how on earth existed without it all these years. Credit history, taxes, loans, house rents, bank accounts everything works on it, insurance, driving license wht not. No need to be skeptical about its usefulness or success. I am seeing it here in Sweden(where I live at the moment) in practice.
