Bangalore: Karnataka government has fixed March 2014 as deadline to enroll the entire population in the state for the unique identification number, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said on Thursday.

Speaking at the formal foundation stone-laying ceremony of the new data centre of UIDAI in Bangalore Siddaramaiah said, “We will extend our support in all possible ways to increase the Aadhaar enrolments in the state.”

“We want to get rid of corruption, leakages and pilferage that exist in the implementation of various government schemes. We believe Aadhaar can help us achieve this,” the Karnataka Chief Minister said.

The data procured at various Aadhaar enrolment centers will be stored and monitored in the proposed building.

Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy, Agriculture Minister Krishna Byre Gowda and UIDAI Chairman Nandan Nilekani were present on the occasion.
