UID-at-birth at 500 Maharashtra hospitals soon

The state public health department will establish enrolment centres in around 500 of its hospitals for Aadhaar-linked birth registration to assign newborns a unique identity number.

This follows the completion of a pilot project at Daga Memorial Hospital in Nagpur, where the project to link the birth certificate to the Unique dentification Authority of India (UIDAI) enrolment was launched in 2016.
