Food ministry turns down Nilekanis UID

New Delhi: Nandan Nilekanis UID or Aadhar has been snubbed again,this time by the food and public distribution ministry.The ministry has ignored the Nilekani task force report making UID central to information technology reforms in the public distribution system and has instead proposed its own system through the National Informatics Centre.
A task force chaired by Nilekani,which included the food secretary,recommended Aadhar cards be made central to such reforms and a dedicated professional IT unit be set up called the Public Distribution System Network (PDSN).
