The hackathon consists of multiple problem statements categorized under two broad themes: enrolment and authentication

To promote culture of innovation among Indian Youth, UIDAI is conducting ‘Aadhaar Hackathon 2021’ from October 28 to 31, 2021, the Ministry of Electronics and IT said in a statement on Tuesday.

So far, UIDAI has received more than 2700+ registrations from the engineering students in last few days, which in itself explains the inclination of the young minds in solving real-life challenges being faced by the residents.

Participation includes students from all categories of engineering institutes i.e. IITs, NITs and NIRF and many top ranked colleges from all corners of the country - from eastern states like Arunachal Pradesh to J&K in North.

Online interactive sessions on a daily basis are also being conducted by UIDAI Team to explain the problem statements with appropriate use cases.

These sessions essentially cover problem statements, details of UIDAI APIs and products, which would be required to build custom solutions. These interactive sessions have been widely received and appreciated by many young innovators/participants.

Evaluation of the submission has been planned through a jury based approach of senior members and officials from the IT industry, academia, consulting and government by UIDAI.

These members would evaluate the submissions through a structured process to identify the best solution, which will be rewarded by UIDAI and the team would be offered a placement, subject to fulfillment of other terms and conditions.
