Tech city Bangalore will soon be the data hub for Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the largest identification project in the country.

The data collected at various centres across the country will be stored and monitored in Bangalore, which is already a technology centre of the Aadhaar project.

The data centre is being constructed on a three-acre land in Bangalore at a cost of Rs 150 crore. It will employ around 400 people who will man the centre, said an official of UIDAI.

The project site is located on Tatanagar Main road, off NH-4. “UIDAI already has a technology centre in Bangalore that provides network support. Now, the data centre that is getting ready will be the central hub for the Aadhaar data that is being collected at various centres across the country,” said K Thirumal, Deputy Director, UIDAI.

The data centre is likely to be operational from December 2014 and work will start on it from Thursday. The regional centre of UIDAI at Khanija Bhavan will be moved to the data centre once it is completed.

So far, 36.6 crore Aadhaar cards have been issued across the country. In Karntaka, 2.41 crore enrolments have been made so far.

The building will also go for LEED certification, a third-party verification that certifies that the building meets highest standards in terms of building design, waste management, energy and water conservation methods and green house emission.
