Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has faced a hitch after reports of over 800 people in Haridwar’s Gaindi Khata village sharing January 1 as their date of birth in their new Aadhaar cards surfaced. This is not the first such incidents where errors have occurred.According to the reports, the UIDAI clarified saying that January 1 of a particular year is typically taken by default as the official date of birth by the system in instances where the applicants do not know their exact date of birth or do not have the supporting documents.A resident of village Wazir Ali Chopra told on Saturday that “We were told we would be getting a unique identification number. But what’s unique about it? Even our birthdays are the same now.”“This came into our notice through the reports. We will probe the matter and take required action against wrong-doers,” Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Haridwar, Manish Kumar said.
