Homeless to be Delhi’s first UID recipients

State government issues homeless cards to facilitate UID registration


Samir Sachdeva | October 13, 2010

Homeless in Delhi will be amongst the first few who will get the UID number. The Delhi government and the UID authority have already started the process of enrolment of homeless people in the night shelter in the Nizammudin area of Delhi. The first set of enrolment slips were issued by Delhi chief minister, Shiela Dixit on 2nd October at the night shelter.  She also issued homeless cards to people as part of the Mission Convergence initiative of Delhi government

The enrolment at the night shelter is being carried out by the enrolment agency, IL& FS which has been selected as registrar for homeless people in Delhi and Maharashtra.

The process being followed by the agency includes data entry, capture of photo by the camera, finger print scanning in three steps (four fingers of first hand, second hand, followed by thumbs), Iris scan, capturing of finger prints of the introducer, printing of enrolment form and acknowledgement slip, obtaining of thumb impression/ signatures on the enrolment form and issue of acknowledgement slips. The registrar thereafter sends the data to Bangalore where the de-duplication process is carried out. The UID numbers will be issued within a month as per the registrar’s representatives on the ground.

The introducers in most cases are representatives of NGO St Stephen Hospital (called mother NGO for purpose of project) which in collaboration with Mission Convergence of Delhi government has issued homeless cards to these people. These homeless cards, along with the acknowledgement slips of national population register (NPR) serve as the verification documents for purpose of UID numbers. The society for promotion of youth and masses (SPYM) is assisting the mother NGO in identifying the homeless in south and south west Delhi.
