Unique Identification Number "Aadhar"

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), is an attached office of the Planning Commission of India to issue Unique Identification Number "Aadhar" to citizens of India who desire to have it. It lacks legal or statutory authority  presently
The UIDAI  aims to provide a unique identification number to all persons residents in India, but not identity cards
About Rs. 35 billion (Rs.3,500 crore) has been spent totally on Aadhaar program from beginning (January-2009) till September-2013 with enrollment of 500 million (50 crore) persons
The SC  passed an Interim Order on Sep 23,2013 that no public services such as LPG be denied to public due to lack of Aadhaar.
