Unique Identification Authority of India(UIDIA) is issuing Aadhaar number to all citizens.
Meanwhile, state police have found that 127 people in Telangana State have been forged by giving fake documents. Preliminary inquiries revealed that they were all illegal immigrants. The police have lodged a complaint with the Unique Identification Authority in Hyderabad. Accordingly, 127 persons have been issued notice by the commission officer.
With regard to this UIDIA issued a statement yesterday, It stated "Aadhaar is not a document of citizenship and UIDAI has been mandated under the Aadhaar Act to ascertain residency of a person in India for 182 days prior to applying for Aadhaar," the nodal body, which issues the 12-digit bio-metric ID said in a statement.
The UIDAI clarified that these notifications "have nothing to do with the citizenship and cancellation of the Aadhaar number in any way to do with any resident's nationality."
As per the Aadhaar Act, such Aadhaar numbers are liable to be cancelled.
Therefore, 127 people will be investigated. If they are provided with forged documents, their Aadhaar number will be canceled or disabled.
