A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed between the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Hyderabad, for technical collaboration.

As per the term of the MoU, NRSC will be developing Bhuvan-Aadhar portal providing information and locations of the aadhaar centres across India. The portal also provides a facility to search the relevant aadhaar centres by location based on resident’s requirements.

NRSC will also provide web based portal to collect and store data pertaining to existing and new enrolment centres to improve citizen centric services by carrying out regular statutory inspections. Collected data will be moderated for quality through approved authorities at regional level to ensure the precise information for residents about the centres along with online visualization facility.

Bhuvan will facilitate complete geographic information storage, retrieval, analysis and reporting for aadhaar centres, with a high resolution backdrop of natural colour satellite images. UIDAI and NRSC are closely working out the modalities of design, integration and roll out on priority.
