PARIVAR PEHCHAN PATRA LAUNCHED BY HARYANA

PARIVAR PEHCHAN PATRA LAUNCHED BY HARYANA

Context

Haryana launched a unique identity card called Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP).

Details about Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP)

  • It aims to monitor each of the approximately 54 lakh families living across the state.
  • Under this, each family will be considered a single unit and allotted a 8-digit unique identification number.
  • As per the State Government, it is mandatory for each family to register themselves on the Parivar Pehchan Patra portal.

How is PPP different from the Aadhaar card?

  • Aadhaar represents an individual as a unit, whereas PPP represents a family as a unit.
  • PPP is not structured around an individual.

Will it be mandatory for every family of Haryana to get PPP?

  • It will not be mandatory for every family of the state to obtain a PPP, but it will be mandatory for families to avail  benefits under government schemes.

What is the Haryana government’s logic behind introducing PPP?

  • As per officials, it may not be possible for a state government to keep track of all the families residing in the state. With the PPP, it will be easier for the state government to maintain a complete database of all the state dwellers.

About Aadhaar

  • It is a 12-digit unique number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).
  • It is issued by taking a person's biometric details such as iris scan and fingerprints, and demographic information like date of birth and address.
