UID is not an alternative for smart cards and ration cards -Â UID will beÂ basis for issuing other cards
UID are not an alternative for smart cards and PAN cards given by government for implementation of different schemes. But UID will be considered standard for giving these cards.Â In the near future, only those who have UID will be given other cards. For giving out these cards, the information collected by UIDA from the people will be of two types. First one is demographic and the other is information regarding existence of a person. Demographic information means the information like name, date of birth, fathers name, address and others. Address will be updated when there is a change in it. Biometric information means photograph, finger prints and iris of two eyes. The information from the people is collected at panchayitis, municipalities, corporations and other local offices, schools, colleges, LIC branch offices, ration depots, cooking gas agencies and field agencies. There is a chance to update the information when the entered information is found to be wrong.
