Must read

New Delhi: A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed between the Unique Identification Authority Of India (UIDAI), Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), New Delhi and National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), ISRO, Hyderabad, for technical collaboration in New Delhi on Friday. The MoU has been signed by UIDAI’s Deputy Director General Shailendra Singh (IFS) and NRSC’s Director Dr Prakash Chauhan in the presence of UDAI CEO Saurabh Garg and other senior officers of UIDAI and NRSC.

NRSC will be developing Bhuvan-Aadhar portal providing information and locations of the Aadhaar centres across India. The portal also provides a facility to search the relevant Aadhaar centres by location based on resident’s requirements.

NRSC will also provide a web-based portal to collect and store data pertaining to existing and new enrolment centres to improve citizen-centric services by carrying out regular statutory inspections. Collected data will be moderated for quality through approved authorities at the regional level to ensure the precise information for residents about the centres along with the online visualization facility.

Bhuvan will facilitate complete geographic information storage, retrieval, analysis and reporting for Aadhaar centres, with a high-resolution backdrop of natural-color satellite images. UIDAI and NRSC are closely working out the modalities of design, integration and roll-out on priority.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is a statutory authority established under the provisions of the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act, 2016 (Aadhaar Act 2016) on July 12, 2016, by the Government, under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). UIDAI has so far issued Aadhaar number to more than 132 crore residents and facilitates over 60 crore residents who have updated their Aadhaar.
