UIDAI has the mandate to issue unique identification number (UID) called "Aadhaar" to all eligible residents of India as well as NRIs on their arrival in India.

UIDAI has been of late receiving requests from the residents for providing home enrolment facility, especially for senior citizens/bedridden/infirm/ persons with disabilities (Divyangjan) etc. Based on merit, UIDAI Regional Offices have been attending to such requests for home enrolment through the Registrars. However, considering the additional cost involved and absence of a specific policy or guidelines in this regard, the Registrars were reluctant to attend to such requests. The Authority noticed that this leads to inordinate delay or denial in providing home enrolment services to the needy residents.
