The scheme has the potential of saving between Rs 50,000 crore and Rs 70,000 crore a year by reducing duplication and leakages.

It was launched with the setting up of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) in 2009.

 

Aadhaar’s success will help the government in paving the way for disbursal of all government benefits and subsidies through UID.
