The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) stated on Saturday that all of its services are up and running smoothly. According to a press release, there have been no outages in its Aadhaar-linking facility with the Permanent Account Number (PAN) and the Workers’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), which is an authentication-based facility.
The UIDAI stated that two media stories about system failures in connecting Aadhaar with PAN and EPFO were incorrect.
The authority stated that because it was undergoing a required safety upgrade in its procedures in a gradual manner over the previous week, some intermittent service outages had been recorded exclusively in the enrollment and cell replace service facility at a few centers, but that they, too, are operating fine now that they’ve been upgraded.
Despite the fact that the system has stabilized, the UIDAI stated that it is still monitoring it to ensure that citizens are not inconvenienced.
According to the Aadhaar-issuing body, more than 5.1 million residents have been enlisted since the upgrade programme began on August 20, with a daily average of 568,000 enrolments. On a daily average of more than 53 million authentications, transactions have been completed normally.
