Once more unto the breach. Nandan Nilekani’s Unique Identification Authority of India has told its regional offices to resume Aadhaar enrolments.
It had temporarily ceased all enrolments in January to address safety-related concerns which had been voiced by, among others, the home ministry. Close to five months down the line, Anil Khachi, a deputy director general with the UIDAI who looks after enrolments told ET that the new system is now ready for rollout. And that UIDAI will finish all enrolments by March 2014.
There’s a lot of good updated information at the link.
