The IT@School project will provide close to six million students in Kerala with the Unique Identity Number, as part of the central government's UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) initiative, in this academic year itself. IT@School Chief Anvar Sadath said more than 12,000 schools in the state will be considered either as separate units or as clusters to enroll for getting the UID.

Thiruvananthapuram: The IT@School project will provide close to six million students in Kerala with the Unique Identity Number, as part of the central government's UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) initiative, in this academic year itself.

The Kerala government has set up a Cabinet Sub-Committee under the chairmanship of Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan and a state UID Implementation panel to oversee and guide the implementation of the Unique ID number in the state.

IT@School Chief Anvar Sadath said more than 12,000 schools in the state will be considered either as separate units or as clusters to enroll for getting the UID.

"IT@School will use its own School Management System to capture necessary details. From this database the mandatory fields will be filtered to a separate software, provided by UIDAI. The students will go through a biometric scanning of ten fingerprints and iris. They will be photographed and given an enrolment number upon completion," Sadath said, reports IANS.

UIDAI was established in 2009 by the Government of India, with the developmental mandate of setting up the infrastructure to provide a universal way of uniquely identifying Indian residents.
