If what I could glean from this thread is right, the first aim of UID is to use it as a tool to weed out "fake identities". It seems there are lots of "ghost persons" who misuse the PDS and other government subsidy benefits. This AFAIK is the primary target for UID. Adding that to electoral rolls, passports, it being made a identity proof etc. may be coming in later down the line.
