Nandan Nilekani responded via e-mail to questions from Outlook. Excerpts:

The outlay for the UID project has been increased manifold even as some big social projects have seen falling outlays.

The UIDAI would be entering its operational phase in 2010-11 wherein the commitment to start issuing unique numbers would begin. It will be conducting pilots in a number of states in the coming months. The amount would be required for hardware, setting up the Central Identities Data Repository as well as enrolment costs.
