Face Recognition for Aadhar verification delayed by one month

June 14, 2018

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has delayed the introduction of face recognition facility for authentication by one month to August 1, 2018 in order to get sufficient time to prepare for a smooth rollout.

The UIDAI had said that face authentication would be allowed along with either fingerprint or iris or one time password (OTP) to verify the details of Aadhaar holder. It is aimed at helping people who face difficulty in biometric authentication.

The UIDAI chief stressed on the fact that additional time taken to make the new system operational would not inconvenience Aadhaar holders given that exceptional handling mechanism is already in place.
