The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has been established by the Government of India to assign unique numbers to all residents of India. The role that the UIDAI envisions is to issue a unique identification number (UID) that can be verified and authenticated in an online, cost-effective manner, and that is robust enough to eliminate duplicate and fake identities.
The UIDAI invites proposals from the public for the logo. If a particular logo is found appropriate and selected by the UIDAI, it would carry a cash prize of Rs. 1 lakh to the sender of the logo. Consolation prizes of Rs.10,000 would also be provided.
