It will be presided by Shri M.V.S. Rami Reddy, IAS, Deputy Director General, UIDAI, Hyderabad. Three-one day training program will be conducted each day catering to about 80 participants from 10 districts. This is intended to create a pool of trainers in various line departments (PDS, MGNREGA, Social Welfare, ICDS, Pension, Education, District Information cell etc.) at district level in Odisha.

These trainers are further expected to impart training to various field functionaries involved in seeding, authentication, in the respective districts. This training is significant, as the next logical step after Aadhaar
enrollments is to utilize Aadhar in Service Delivery which involves seeding, authentication.

As of now, approximately 3.25 crore population in Odisha have been given Aadhaar numbers, out of 4.43 crore population (2015 estimate). At All India level, more than 96 crore people have Aadhaar. Utilization of Aadhaar in Service Delivery will enable the governments to deliver services with increased efficiency, transparency and
effectiveness of the reach of the welfare measures. It also helps reduce leakages in the system.
