Department of Posts has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) which India Post has been designated as official carrier of Unique Identity Numbers and will deliver the UID communication to the citizens of India.
The department of posts, with a vast network of 155,015 post offices of which around 90 percent are in the rural area, would use its flagship product, Speed Post, for the purpose. India Post is also providing the comprehensive business solution of printing and pre mailing activities and last mile delivery of UID letters to the recipients of UID number. Whenever and wherever required by UIDAI, Department of Post will also do biometric authentication of each UID letter delivered.
At present, DoP is also involved in mammoth task of implementing the work of distribution of nearly 10,000 tonnes of Census material from 15 printing presses to nearly 12,000 taluk and municipal level locations across the length and breadth of the country through its Logistics Post in connection with Census 2011 as its official carrier. India Post will also be undertaking the reverse logistics for collection of filled in census forms from these locations and delivery to the respective Directorates of Census Operations and scanning centers in the States. The Project started in February 2010 and will be completed in June 2011.
