Besides, If UID is combined with biometric data and it is verified at the time of various transactions, which is a long shot in India, then even various online and off-line transactions requiring disability verification may be greatly facilitated.
One such instance is online booking of concession tickets.
Further, meaningful research can be undertaken, at least by government agencies which have access to UID data, pertaining to various parameters and their relation to disability or otherwise. Statistics like education and income levels or housing conditions of disabled would be readily available and more authentic than just sample surveys.

1. First of all, we will have a very cclear statistics and specifics on
disability population in this country. We will no how many, and even
who, require what kinds of services and it would then be possible for
NGOs and service organisations to reach out to that specific population.
2. We will know geographical disposition of disability and will be able
to check if certain disability are occurring in certain families/social
environments, especially vision defects such as RP etc.
3. This will be good for people to access services of the government and
even the government can ensure the benefits reach the person/people it
is meant for.
4. It would hopefully unify the various identification certificates we
need to carry with us now.
5. This is a long shot, but it should be possible for the prospective
employers to learn about our disability when they check our UID numbers
even before the recruitment process begins. The employer can then make
up his mind about the suitability of the position for us, instead of
waiting for us to let him know the disability (which some people are
apprehensive of doing since they fear that they may not be called for
the interview in the first place if their disability is known).
That's all I can think of.
