The government has raised fund allocation for the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) – which issues biometric ID to residents – by 17 percent to Rs 985 crore for the next fiscal starting April 1.
In the current fiscal, UIDAI was originally allocated Rs 1,227 crore when the Modi-2.0 government presented the Union Budget on July 5 last year.
But the amount was revised downwards to Rs 836.7 crore, according to Budget 2020-21 documents.
In December last year, the UIDAI had said that 125 crore residents of India have Aadhaar, the 12-digit unique identity number.
He said the due date for linking of PAN with Aadhaar has been further extended from December 31, 2019, to March 31, 2020.
