All systems stable, UIDAI says after reports of Aadhaar-linking outages

New Delhi: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) said on Saturday that all its services are stable and functioning fine. There have been no outages in its Aadhaar-linking facility with Permanent Account Number (PAN) and the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), which is an authentication-based facility, it said in a statement.

Responding to a few
media reports on the system outages in linking Aadhaar with PAN and EPFO, the UIDAI said they were not accurate.

The authority said that as it was going through an essential security upgrade in its systems in a phased manner over the past week, some intermittent service interruptions were reported only in the enrolment and mobile update service facility at a few centres, but these too are working fine after upgradation.

Even though the system has stabilised, the UIDAI said it is monitoring the same to ensure that no inconvenience is caused to the residents.

According to the Aadhaar-issuing authority, more than 5.1 million residents have been enrolled since the beginning of the upgradation process on August 20 at an average of 568,000 enrolments per day. Authentication transactions have taken place as usual on an average of more than 53 million authentications per day.
