The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is setting up its data centre at Manesar in Haryana.

This modern, energy efficient, captive ‘Green Data Centre’ would be built to global standards and would have several innovations, an official spokesman said here today.

The data centre would be one of the biggest data centres in the country, he claimed.

It would serve as central repository for UIDAI to store residents’ basic demographic and bio-metric information captured by it while issuing a 12-digit ‘AADHAAR’ number to each resident across the country.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda would lay the foundation stone of the data centre on January 7.

Chairman of the UIDAI Nandan Nilekani and Director General-cum-Mission Director R. S. Sharma would also be present on the occasion.

He said to ascertain uninterrupted operations, modular and scalable systems would be designed to provide seamless integration to support future load expansion up to 1.6 billion enrolments estimated by 2030.
