MindTree secures the first IT deal from Aadhaar

MindTree, a global IT solutions company, announced that it has secured the application development and maintenance services contract of the Nandan Nilekani-headed Unique Identification (UID) project, renamed as Aadhaar. The multi-crore project involves services across the application lifecycle — from designing, developing, testing, maintaining and supporting the Aadhaar application to providing help desk services from the UIDAFs (Unique Identification Authority of India) Bangalore Technology Centre.

Aadhaar will authenticate every Indian in terms of his or her identity based on bio-metric verification. With a massive information base of 1.2 billion people and the ongoing collection, validation, issue and constant verification of identity, project Aadhaar will require one of the most complex IT architectures ever created and a software implementation that would become a benchmark for years to come.

MindTree will work as the development partner to build the Aadhaar application, in collaboration with the technology team of UIDAI and other stakeholders. It will also carry out the ongoing services of development and enhancement to the core Aadhaar application. The company made this announcement on 18 June 2010.
