it considered compulsory registration of citizens and non-citizens living in India to prepare a National Register of Indian Citizens (NRIC)the handing out to citizens of a Multi-purpose National Identity Card (MNIC) (with non-citizens receiving a card of different colour and design) With this in viewthe MNIC pilot project was undertaken by the office of the Registrar-General (RGI) and Census Commissioner under the home ministry during 2003-2008 in selected areas of 13 states or Union territoriescovering 28 lakh people in 2175 villages and 19 towns costingreportedlyRs 30 crore Its main objectives: firsta credible individual identification systemwith a unique national identity number to deter future illegal migration; secondpreparing the NRIC register and issuing citizens an MNIC to aid interaction with government; thirdmore efficient e-governance; and fourthcontinuous updating of NRIC based on birthsdeaths and fresh registration of citizens This pilot project was undertaken after meeting legal requirements by issuing the Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and issue of National Identity Cards) Rules2003 under Section 18 of the Citizenship Act1955 This is not the only home ministry project Along with the 2011 Censusdata will be collected for a National Population Register (NPR);

the ministrymeanwhilehas planned to prepare and adopt the NPR It is not clear how and why the UIDAI hassuddenlypreferred the less reliable data in the scheme registers to the better-authenticated NPR Did they conduct any study to assess the accuracyfeasibility and availability of these registers for adoption in preference to the NPR Secondlythe UIN is random while the ministrys ID number will be assigned systematically The UIDAI have to spell out how the electronic database complete with photograph and finger biometrics of each individual will be maintained and updated at Centralstate and lower levels India has 35 states/ Union territories593 districts5463 sub-districts5161 towns and 638588 villages (according to the 2001 Census);
