The ambitious project of Unique Identity Number and National Population Register are going to make a difference in coming. The need of the hour is not to fight over the issue of duplicacy of efforts and wastage of money but to find ways of integrating the data into a unique ID which will help in ensuring better and efficient service delivery in the country. I think the youth should be made the main target group for registering into UID and then the rest. In all the education institutions, Aadhaar Number should be made compulsory and all the government agencies issuing some kind of identity must include Aadhaar No in their ID like Driving Licence, Pan Card, Passport, College Identity, Ration Card etc. and thus it will revolutionize the whole process of UID. And along with this the UIDAI should try to make the Unique ID more foolproof and authentication drive should be initiated like mobile number verification after an interval of say 5 year the first one should be within 3 month of issue of card. I think these measures will make Aadhaar Number a success story and other
countries will follow suit.
