It was more than six years ago that we had published this blog covering the three mega projects which had the potential to tranform background verifications in India.
Let’s review the status of these projects.
Aadhaar is now a mainstream identity platform, which is being used in a wide variety of processes and applications. In fact, Aadhaar is one of the largest such platforms in the world and shows no signs of stopping in terms of enrollments and usages. We have also released our offering for Aadhaar verification.
National Academic Depository was put on high priority by the current government and has been launched. More universities and records are being added to it. We continue to stay tuned for its enrollment for background verification providers.
Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems has been an ongoing project for quite some time. The project status sheet indicates that the State Citizen Portals for the project has been launched in various states. Once again, we continue to stay tuned for its availability for background verification providers.
In summary, the three mega projects have done quite well and with the inclusion of Aadhaar as a unique key across the three projects, it will become possible to have a unified view across different types of background checks.
