Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) today launched the ‘Aadhaar Official Channel‘ on YouTube as part of its efforts to inform and educate people about the features of the unique identity numbers issued.
“We have added yet another medium to our existing modes of communication with the residents. TheAadhaar Official Channel has very informative videos that educate residents of what the Aadhaar number is, how to get enrolled and benefits of getting an Aadhaar number,” UIDAI Chairman Nandan Nilekani said in a statement.
The channel consists of informational films on the Aadhaar enrolment process, Aadhaar’s role in furthering the goal of financial inclusion and television commercials.
“We will periodically update the channel with new films to inform the public on Aadhaar-linked initiatives,” UIDAI Director General and Mission Director R S Sharma said.
The channel currently has 15 videos. With the second phase of Aadhaar enrolments beginning across the country and Aadhaar-enabled payments of various schemes about to begin in 50 districts, UIDAI is making all efforts to reach out to residents, informing them about Aadhaar.
