Aadhaar, PAN/EPFO linking facility working fine, outage reports inaccurate: UIDAI


New Delhi: Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on Saturday said that all its services are stable and functioning fine and there have been no outages in its Aadhaar, PAN/Employee Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) linking facility, which is authentication based. 

“The PAN/EPFO is an authentication-based facility”, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology added.

According to the statement issued by UIDAI, it was going through an essential security upgrade in its systems in a phased manner over the last week, some intermittent service interruptions were reported only in the enrolment and mobile update service facility at a few enrolment/update centres, which too is working fine now, after upgradation.

UIDAI further said that even though the system has stabilized, it is monitoring the same to ensure that no inconvenience is caused to the residents.
