Cabinet extends mandate of UIDAI

The government cleared the UIDAI’s proposal to enrol an extra 40 crore people in 16 states, while the biometrics in other states will be collected under the NPR project.
The data collected will be used to issue chip-based smart cards in the country through the National Population Register (NPR) project. The bio metric data for the remaining population of over 60 crore will be covered under the Home Ministry’s NPR project.
Using the bio metric data collected by both the agencies, a chip-based smart card will be issued to all residents by the Registrar General of India (RGI), which is the implementing authority for the NPR project.
