UIDAI introduces virtual ID, limited KYC for Aadhaar card holders

The Virtual ID is a 16-digit randomly-generated temporary number that people would be able to share instead of Aadhaar.

Under the new system, at the user-end, the Aadhaar holder will have the choice not to share their Aadhaar number at the time of authentication.

"Use of VID would be optional", the UIDAI said.

However, people would have to wait until March 1 as the UIDAI would be releasing necessary applications for its implementation by that day, the circular said. For an authentication request by agencies, UIDAI will send a UID Token, which is a specific number that will remain the same for a specific agency but will be different for different entities.

"What about all the databases that are already linked up with our Aadhaar number?"

"(But) we have ensured that even service providers who are not supposed to store Aadhaar will be able to authenticate using it but their networks will not be able to save the information in any form". As linking of Aadhaar to PAN card, social welfare and other schemes has become mandatory, users can also give their VID for authentication, till the time linking is not being done. The media coverage about the possible misuse of Aadhaar data brought the government authority on the back foot, following which the UIDAI has launched a unique option on its website called "Verify Aadhaar number". Since the system generated Virtual ID will be mapped to an individual's Aadhaar number itself, it will work the same way as your Aadhaar number worked.

- Aadhaar number holder can use VID in lieu of Aadhaar number whenever authentication or KYC services are performed.

What is Virtual ID or VID all about?

Until now, a person had to give their 12-digit identity number along with demographic and biometrics or through a one-time password during authentication or e-KYC (know your customer) for accessing various benefits and services from service providers. "There will be only one active and valid VID for an Aadhaar number at any given time", the UIDAI said in a statement. "Under compulsion, millions of persons have already shared Aadhaar number with many service providers".

Vipin Nair, one of the advocates representing the petitioners who have challenged the Aadhaar Act in the Supreme Court said, "It is potentially a case of unmitigated chaos purely from an Information Technology perspective". The agency will confirm the exact information required by over 350 of its authentication agencies.

This new security mechanism will kickstart from March 2018. "I think everybody has to accept that Aadhaar is here to stay". It will not reveal any of the user's Aadhaar details.

The important software is all set to come out by the UIDAI by this March on the first week.
