The Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) has allotted five acres of land in Manesar to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) for setting up of a data centre.
As part of the Aadhaar project, the Central Identification Data Repository (CIDR) will be established with an investment of Rs 275 crore, an official release said here on Monday.
While Rs 160 crore would be spent on the data centre infrastructure development and building, R115 crore would be incurred on civil and other miscellaneous works, it said.
The total built up area would be more than two lakh sq ft and the green data centre would be in addition to the existing centre at Bangalore.
The UIDAI project launched by the central government will issue a 12 digit unique identity number to all citizens of the country. All the basic demographics and biometric information -- photographs, 10 finger prints and iris of each individual-- would be stored in a centralised data base.
The authority aims at enrolling all 1.6 billion citizens by the year 2030.
