India is a young country and it appears that the Unique Identification Authority of India ( UIDAI) is keen to record this fact. Itsbiometric machines have been reconfigured to scan fingerprints up to 60 per cent coarseness — a feature that didn’t exist in the earlier machines. As a result, many elderly people, who tend to have relatively faint finger marks that get fainter in the cold weather, cannot enroll in the system. Now, this is clearly a chronic problem. Officials manning the scanners told a colleague to send a mail to the UID help desk. Each of these mails would then be used as part of a campaign to get UIDAI to do something about it, the officials said.
