Today at Gandhinagar, Shri B.B.Nanavati, Deputy Director General of Unique Identification Authority of India and Shri V.N.Mayra, Principal Secretary to General Administration (Planning) Department signed Memorandum of Understanding.

The number indicates unique identity of every citizen and not entitles any right or benefits to them. It will just identify a citizen and will not be considered as a proof of citizenship. Citizens will be provided with a number not a card.

Gujarat government has initiated for a quick implementation of the scheme. State government has also formed a unique identification implementation committee under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary Shri A.K.Joti.
