This decision was taken at the state-level by the Unique Identification Implementation Committee meeting chaired by the Chief Secretary AK Tripathy.

AK Tripathy also asked the nodal implementing agency OCAC (Odisha Computer Application Centre) and the concerned departments, to form age-group specific strategies pertaining to saturation enrolment and level-up Odisha to top five states in Aadhaar implementation.

Tripathy also directed to emphasise on Aadhaar generation of the children between the age group of 0-5 and 5-18. He also asked that Anganwadi centres and schools should be an active part of  Aadhaar enrolment of the children.

“The meeting resolved to link the issue of birth certificates to Aadhaar registration,” said Odisha IT Secretary Manoj Mishra.
