The UIDAI functions as a regulatory authority managing a Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR), that issues UIDs, update resident information, and authenticate the identity of residents as required. In addition, the UIDAI partners with agencies such as Central Ministries and Departments, State governments and other governmental agencies such as Banks, Insurance Companies etc. who function as ‘Registrars’ for the UIDAI. Registrars process UID applications, and connect to the CIDR to de-duplicate resident information and receive UID numbers. DoIT&C is a Registrar of UIDAI. The Authority also partners with service providers for authentication and electronic ‘Know Your Customer’ (e KYC) services. DoIT&C is a ASA & AUA of UIDAI.
