The enrollment is being taken up as part of benchmarking the biometric standards as part of giving unique identification numbers to all Indian residents.

Speaking to media later, Mr. Bhaskar expressed satisfaction over the process of Proof of Concept (PoC). He said PoC is aimed at evaluating the technical, operational and behavioural aspects of enrolling biometrics of the residents. He said that about 30,000 people would be enrolled.
