Unique Identity : Adhaar Number or Identity Crisis

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 
5year 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.
