This ID will be assigned on the basis of the uniqueness of the resident's biometrics. Accordingly, the fingerprint and iris-related biometrics of each resident will be captured which will help to establish the identity of an individual correctly by linking the UID number to the demographic and biometric information. The objective is to issue a unique identification number (UID) that can be verified and authenticated in a cost-effective manner, and which is robust enough to eliminate the duplicate and fake identities.
