To provide security to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) data centre at Manesar in Gurugram, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) took over the charge of security of the building on Friday.

The building will be guarded by 159 CISF personnel to protect it against possible terror strikes or other threats.

“The CISF personnel deployed at the building will be headed by a deputy commandant rank officer. They will provide armed security cover to the facility round-the-clock,” said assistant inspector general Hemendra Singh.

Special vehicle-borne quick reaction teams of commandos will also be stationed at vantage points to charge in case of an attack or sabotage-like activity, he added.

UIDAI was set up to develop and implement the necessary institutional, technical and legal infrastructure to issue unique identity numbers, popularly known as Aadhaar, to Indian citizens.
