UDID Card (Unique Disability ID)

 

Unique ID for Persons with Disabilities” project is being implemented by GoI with a view of creating a National Database for PwDs, and issuing a Unique Disability Identity Card to each person with disabilities. The project will not only encourage transparency, efficiency, and ease of delivering the government benefits to the person with disabilities but also ensure uniformity. The project will also help in streamlining the tracking of the physical and financial progress of beneficiary at all levels of the hierarchy of implementation – from village level, block level, District level, State level, and National level.

 

The project will enable the PwDs to obtain the new UDID card / Disability Certificate to avail schemes and benefits provided by the Government through its various Ministries and their Departments. This card will be valid pan-India. The UDID portal shall be designed to provide an online platform for the following:


1. A new application for UDID
2. Renewal of existing Certificate/Card on the expiration of the validity
3. In the event of loss of card/certificate

  3. The UDID Card will also help in streamlining the tracking of the physical and financial progress of beneficiary at all levels of the hierarchy of implementation – from village level, block level, District level, State level, and National level
