MOU Signed Between UIDAI and ISRO for Technical Collaboration

Apr 08:A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the Unique Identification Authority Of India (UIDAI), Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), New Delhi, and National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), ISRO, Hyderabad, for technical collaboration here today. The MoU was signed by Sri Shailendra Singh, IFS, Deputy Director-General, UIDAI, and Dr. Prakash Chauhan, Director, NRSC in the presence of the CEO, UIDAI, and other senior officers of UIDAI and NRSC.

NRSC will be developing the Bhuvan-Aadhar portal providing information and locations of the aadhaar centers across India. The portal also provides a facility to search the relevant Aadhaar centers by location based on residents’ requirements.

NRSC will also provide a web-based portal to collect and store data pertaining to existing and new enrolment centers to improve citizen-centric services by carrying out regular statutory inspections. Collected data will be moderated for quality through approved authorities at the regional level to ensure the precise information for residents about the centers along with an online visualization facility.

Bhuvan will facilitate complete geographic information storage, retrieval, analysis, and reporting for Aadhaar centers, with a high-resolution backdrop of natural-color satellite images. UIDAI and NRSC are closely working out the modalities of design, integration, and rollout on priority.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is a statutory authority established under the provisions of the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act, 2016 (“Aadhaar Act 2016”) on 12 July 2016 by the Government of India, under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). UIDAI has so far issued Aadhaar numbers to more than 132 crore residents and facilitates over 60 crore residents who have updated their Aadhaar.
