Panchayati Raj institutions to play active role in UID

Panchayati Raj institutions will be active partners in the ambitious Unique Identification Number programme.



New Delhi: Panchayati Raj institutions will
be active partners in the ambitious Unique Identification
Number programme.

The Ministry of Panchayati Raj and Unique Identification
Authority of India have agreed to work together in ensuring
organic linkages of Panchayati Raj institutions in the UID
Mission on a continuing basis.

The linkages will not only be for enrolments at the
initial stage but also for authentication and subsequent
applications in providing better and accountable local
governance.

In a joint statement released by the Ministry and the
UIDAI, they said the panchayats have a role in both planning
and implementing some of the major programmes.

There are 28,18,290 elected representatives of panchayats
at all three levels in 23 states and six union territories, of
whom 10,39,058 are women.
