Andhra, Maharashtra lead in issuing Aadhaar cards

Mumbai, Aug 19 : With more than 6.26 crore Aadhaar cards issued, Maharashtra ranks second in the country after Andhra Pradesh in the UIDAI scheme, an official statement said here Monday.

While Andhra Pradesh has issued 6,59,41,390 cards, Maharashtra follows a close second with 6,26,97,942.

The two states account for a major share of the 40 crore Aadhaar numbers issued till the end of July 2013.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) plans to achieve a target of 60 crore Aadhaar card enrolments by 2014 and the process is continuing at a healthy pace.

In July this year, around two crore new Aadhaar numbers were generated enabling people to authenticate their identity anytime, anywhere with new Aadhar-enabled services.
