UIDAI signs MoU with Meghalaya government
Shillong: The Unique Identification
Authority of India (UIDAI) today signed a Memorandum of
Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Meghalaya,
detailing the implementation of the project in the state.
The MoU with the Government of Meghalaya was signed
between Davinder Kumar, DDG, UIDAI and Pankaj Jain, resident
commissioner of the government of Meghalaya, officials said.
The Meghalaya govt has set up a state level cabinet
committee on UID under the chairmanship of the Chief Minister
and a state UID implementation committee under the
chairmanship of the chief secretary to oversee implementation
of the project in the state.
Sharma said the UIDAI cannot realise its objective of
providing every Indian resident with a UID number without
working in tandem with state governments.
Over five years, the authority plans to issue 600
million UIDs. The numbers will be issued through various
`registrar` agencies across the country.
The first number would be issued between August 2010
to February 2011 in some states.
