Nilekani's UIDAI will issue Aadhar cards along with Registrar General of India (RGI) in 13 states including Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh. RGI will collect data is the remaining states. Then the data in both the institutions is likely to be married.


What is the Issue?
RGI which comes under Home Minister Chidambaram has mandate to collect bio-metric data of all Indian Citizens. But the progress is slow. While UIDAI which has mandate to collect only 20 crore data, sought permission to expand Home Ministry objected
