Bangalore, Nov 13 (ANI): Chairman of the Unique Identity Authority of India (UIDAI), Nanndan Nilekani, on Friday made it clear that there is no chance for getting the number of his/her choice in UID, the Computer would throw up a random 16-digit number and there is no way you can change it.

Delivering the "Vision 2020 - Leadership Series" lecture in the BangaloreIT.Biz 2009 conference here, Nilekani said: "No special number. Take the number you get, number will be numeric; it will be 16-digit number."

All these days people would get the number of their choice may it be mobile or motor registration by shelling out more or using your influence or some other means, but UID is away from all such things.

Commenting on difficulty and challenge he faces being the UIDAI chairman, Nilakani said: "Being from outside the government, there were certainly challenges to adjust to that (government)."

"I am confident that I will be able to figure out how to navigate through these different (government) systems," he added. (ANI)
