The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) confirmed yesterday that all of its services are active and stable and that there have been no disruptions in its authentication-based Aadhaar - PAN/EPFO linking service. In a press release issued on 28th August 2021, the Ministry of Electronics & IT department has reported that "UIDAI said that as it was going through an essential security upgrade in its systems in a phased manner over the last week, some intermittent service interruptions were reported only in the enrolment and mobile update service facility at a few enrolment/update centres, which too is working fine now, after upgradation."
MeitY has also stated "UIDAI further said that even though the system has stabilized, it is monitoring the same to ensure that no inconvenience is caused to the residents. It may be noted that more than 51 lakh residents have been enrolled in last 9 days since the beginning of the upgradation process on 20th August 2021 at an average of 5.68 lakh enrolment per day while authentication transactions have taken place as usual on an average of more than 5.3 crore authentications per day."
