How will Aadhaar be built

Aadhaar will be built in partnership with Registrars. Registrars will collect demographic & biometric data from residents directly or through Enrolment Agencies. Aadhaar will be issued by the UIDAI to residents after de-duplication of data.
Financial support will also be provided for Registrars to operationalise this program as per approval of the Government of India from time to time. The

Government had initially approved 20 crore enrolments in pilot phase till March 2012. Another 40 crore enrolments across 18 States/ UTs have been approved (Refer Annexure for list of States/ UTs). These enrolments are to be done by UIDAI’s non- RGI Registrars over the next 18-24 months starting April 2012.
What is the Aadhaar Ecosystem?
The UIDAI has identified the following partners and defined processes for Registrars to commence operations:
1. Enrolment Agencies: To enable quick on-boarding of enrolment agencies, UIDAI has empanelled enrolment agencies across all States and Union Territories. These agencies have been categorized by technical and financial strength and the list is available on our website under the ‘Registrars & Enrolments’ tab.
2. Device Certification Agency: To support Registrars in deploying the right devices for the enrolment process, UIDAI has appointed STQC (Standardization, Testing & Quality Certification) as the device certification agency. STQC will certify biometric devices (Fingerprint Scanner & Iris Camera) by make & model.
3. Training & Certification Agencies: To bring all enrolment operators to a uniform skill level, UIDAI has built standardized training content, empanelled Training Agencies that are authorized to deliver our training and appointed Sify and MeritTrac as the Testing & Certification agency.
4. Agency for Document Management: UIDAI has appointed HP for managing hard copies of resident’s documents collected during enrolment process.
5. Financial Institutions: UIDAI has signed MoUs with various Banks who will open UID Enabled Bank Accounts (UEBA). This will not only pave the way for financial inclusion of marginalized residents, but also offer significantly lower cost channels for Registrars to transfer financial benefits directly to residents. UIDAI’s approach on Financial Inclusion is in line with Financial Inclusion targets & strategy outlined by RBI & GoI.
6. The UIDAI is also working with a number of public and private sector organizations to UID-enable their application so that the residents start accruing comprehensive benefits
