Around three crore people use Aadhar daily: UIAI

Hyderabad, July 11 (UNI) Aadhar is the world’s largest ID system and on an average around three crore people are using it daily, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIAI) Chairman Dr J Satyanarayana said on Wednesday.
Speaking at the three-day International Conference on Digital Identity, with a Special focus on Aadhaar, organised by Indian School of Business’s Digital Identity Research Initiative (DIRI), Mr Satyanarayana said on an average, around three crore people were using Aadhaar every day in the country, mainly for ration, pension, rural employment, and scholarships.
He also said that the impact of the Aadhaar was also very high. More than Rs 90,000 crores are estimated as reported savings or gains by analysing the departments of Petroleum & Natural Gas, Food & Public Distribution; Rural Development and others.
He emphasised that the governance system has constantly been changing with the growth of technology and we are moving towards a scenario of ‘invisible governance.’
Dr Satyanarayana also touched upon some of the areas of research requirement in the context of digital identity. “We will need further research in - creating more efficient bio-metric identification systems; security of Aadhaar eco-system; improvement in processes of enrolment, updating, and authentication; operation in areas with challenged networks and use of artificial intelligence and machine learning for fraud detection and prevention.”
Dr Satyanarayana said that Aadhaar has two Data Centers, each one at Bangaluru (Karnataka) and Manesar (Haryana). The expansion of Data Centres would be decided once after the dada occupancy capacity is reached to 50 per cent from 30 per cent at present. About 7000 severs were working under them.
Around 150 researchers on digital identity from India and abroad are actively participating in the conference.
DIRI is a targeted and multidisciplinary research initiative to explore key questions around digital identity systems with a focus on Aadhaar. It was launched on July 5, 2017, in collaboration with Omidyar Network.
