According to a PIB press release issued on September 21, 2022, “This initiative leverages three existing Aadhaar components – Offline KYC Verification, Local Face Matching and mAadhaar Application to unlock new user experience.”
“The guiding principles of these initiatives are – simplicity in usage for the residents, respecting the privacy of every individual, and empowering resident to share their information voluntarily to transact and avail a host of services of their choice,” explained Dr. Saurabh Garg, CEO, UIDAI.
Simplicity is achieved by focusing on residents’ experience and allowing residents to voluntarily share their Offline KYC information without any connectivity to UIDAI backend and establish Proof of Presence using mAadhaar application on their own smartphones, he added.
Voluntary use of Offline KYC
Residents who voluntarily use offline KYC with two factor authentication may be able to access numerous services simultaneously. “These proposed features are proof concepts, and would undergo a thorough consultation with all the stake holders including public and experts. These initiatives will be finalized after the due consultation and after following required rules and protocols; and once finalized allow residents to harness their own information voluntarily to avail services,” PIB press release stated.
