The Making of Aadhaar
Ram Sevak Sharma
Rupa, Rs 595

Aadhaar is the world’s largest iden- tity project that enrolled a billion resi- dents. This book offers insights into its creation, at a fraction of the cost of the alternative, less sophisticated identity systems that had been previ- ously tried in India and elsewhere. It makes for an interesting case study as outcomes of major projects, especially in government, tend to range from the ‘underwhelming’ to the ‘spectacular failures’. Alongside Nandan Nilekani, the author led a brilliant team in devel- oping the technology that undergirds Aadhaar. The book tells an inside story of how Aadhaar came into being.
