"[India] The Indian government will be providing unique identification numbers to all children above 5 years old. The UID number will help the government track the progress of each child and to improve the education system. Different agencies will compile biometric data on each child and supply it to the Ministry of Human Resource Development to keep track of indicators such as school attendance and grades."
Notes from IFTF:
"[Unique Identification Numbers or]Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique number which the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) will issue for all residents in India. The number will be stored in a centralized database and linked to the basic demographics and biometric information – photograph, ten fingerprints and iris – of each individual.It is easily verifiable in an online, cost-effective way. So also, it is unique and robust enough to eliminate the large number of duplicate and fake identities in government and private databases The random number generated will be devoid of any classification based on caste, creed, religion and geography"
