4G Identity wins two bids to provide devices to UIDAI

To supply devices for Proof of Concept

PTI | March 12, 2010

4G Identity Solutions, a Hyderabad based ID cards maker and consultancy, Wednesday said it has won two bids to provide fingerprint and iris recognition devices to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).

These devices will be used in the UIDAI Proof of Concept (PoC) tests. The objective of the UIDAI feasibility tests is to establish a definitive baseline for biometric data quality under Indian conditions. Subsequent to those tests, the devices and the data collected in the PoC will be used in the UIDAIs biometrics Centre of Competence, the company said in a statement today.

When contacted, a company official said that they need to supply twenty devices each for finger print and iris recognition and they will have to enrol 30,000 people.

"We were given six weeks time to complete the prelude of the project, based on which the Government will go for pilot project," the company official told PTI.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has been set up by the Government of India with a mandate to issue a unique identification number to all 1.2 billion residents of India.

UIDAI invited global bids in December last year for supply, installation and commissioning of biometric & fingerprint devices. As many as 19 companies participated in the bidding process in which 4G ID won. .
