Orissa to add 12 more specifications to UID

This was decided at a high-level meeting attended by chief secretary, director census (Orissa) and other officials.

The government has decided to include information like ration card, BPL/APL, driving license, PAN, EPIC, passport, kissan and credit card, LPG, Rashtriya Swasthya Vikas Yojana, pension ID and pass book numbers and NREGS data.

Six places in the state have been identified to execute the work, Orissa chief secretary B K Patnaik said.

Stating that the work for bio-metric data collection for preparation of UID would start in December from eight KBK (Kalahandi-Balangir-Koraput) districts, he said demographic data work had already been started by identifying as many as 95 lakh families.

The people in the state could expect getting UID from May/June, 2011, an official said.
