Indian Identity Program reaches two millionth issued identity

Based on biometric iris and fingerprint identity management technology from Morpho, the Indian UIDAI program has reached a significant milestone
Indian Identity Program reaches two millionth issued identity

Morpho (Safran group) has announced that its technology has enabled the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to issue its two millionth identification number under the Aadhaar program. Officially launched in September 2010, this is the world’s largest biometrics-based identity program.


Morpho’s latest-generation technology deployed by the Mahindra Satyam/Morpho consortium has played a pivotal role in the program for de-duplication of the biometric records enabling issuance of unique identification numbers. The Aadhaar project aims to deliver a unique number to each Indian resident, which will provide highly secure access (using fingerprint and iris recognition) to a wide range of benefits and services. The Mahindra Satyam/Morpho consortium is one of the three biometric solution providers contracted for the initial phase of this program during which 200 million residents are expected to be registered.


“We are truly proud that our cutting-edge biometric technology has allowed the UIDAI authority to reach the two million milestone in this large-scale project,” commented Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Morpho. “This achievement highlights the efforts and commitment of all the partners involved to make the Aadhaar program a success.”


The UIDAI plans to issue 600 million Aadhaar numbers over the next four years.
