Who is an Introducer?

  • Introducers are individuals (for example, Registrar’s employees, elected local body members, members of local administrative bodies, postmen, influencers such as teachers, health workers & doctors, Aanganwadi / ASHA workers, representative of local NGO’s etc.) identified by a Registrar and registered in UIDAI’s CIDR as “Introducers”.
  • In certain cases, the UIDAI Regional Office may itself take the initiative to identify a pool of Introducers for the convenience of the Registrars.
  • Introducer must be above the age of 18 years and Introducer must not have a criminal record.
  • Introducers will be linked to a Registrar. The same Introducer may be used by more than one Registrar as long as they are identified by the concerned Registrar and registered in UIDAI’s CIDR as “Introducers” for the particular Registrar. Therefore, the Introducer can only introduce people within the Registrar’s jurisdiction. In addition, a Registrar can further limit the operations of an Introducer by administrative boundaries (State, district level).
