Storing 10 fingerprints requires around 5 megabytes (MB) of space. Storing that information for billion-plus persons will require 5 billion MB of memory space. While that may no longer be an unimaginable number, given our IT prowess, maintaining and running such a database has its own challenges.

Then, there is the question of using the system.

The widespread implementation of the UID project needs the reach and flexibility to enroll residents across the country. To achieve this, the UIDAI proposes to partner with a variety of agencies and service providers to enroll residents for UID. By participating as Enrolment agency - SoftAge has become part of a historic exercise, one which can make our welfare systems far more accessible and inclusive of the poor, and permanently transform service delivery in India.

SoftAge was covering enrolment for Haryana region and Bihar.
