As posted above, there was drive at Bank of India during 2011. And we got it during sep 2011 itself, just around 45 min spent for me +wife. and we got mailer with cards and UID number somewhere during 2012. But somehow I too feel that it will be a failed project, with so many vested interests opposing it. But to an extend, I believe govt has failed to effectively convince public that it is almost 100% secure with so many unanswered questions, and also difference of opinion about its usage and implementation among govt departments itself.
