Mahindra Satyam, Morpho selected as key partners for UIDAI

Mahindra Satyam and Morpho were selected by UIDAI as one of the three key partners for the initial phase of this program. The first phase will run up to two years during which a total of 200 million people are expected to be registered.

Aadhaar, the largest identity program in the world would cover the entire population of the country. Based on latest generation biometric technologies (fingerprints and iris recognition), it aims to provide a unique identification number to each Indian for secure access to benefits and services (education, telecom, medical care, banking and financial services) as well as political and economic rights.

Mahindra Satyam and Morpho will develop and maintain systems that will cross-check every new application by sifting through the biometrics database, preventing accidental or fraudulent duplication and ensuring that each identification number is unique. Morpho will provide the biometric technology while Mahindra Satyam will integrate and provide support across platforms and databases.
