The Unique Identification Project has been initially conceived by the Planning Commission as an initiative that will provide identification for every resident across the country. The Aadhaar is meant to be used primarily as the basis for efficient delivery of welfare services. It would also act as a tool for effective monitoring of various programmes and schemes of the government. The UIDAI’s mandate is to issue every resident a unique identification number linked to his demographic and biometric information, which he can use to identify himself anywhere in India, and to access a host of benefits and services. The number (referred to until now as the UIDAI) has been named Aadhaar, which means foundation or ‘support’. This word is present across most Indian languages and can therefore be used in branding and communication of the UIDAI programme across the country.
