How can I upgrade my Samsung Galaxy Tab Iris from public to registered device?

Background

UIDAI has sent letters to existing AUA/KUAs to comply with following:

  • Vendor SDK to be level 0/1 certified by end of May, 2017.
  • All existing biometric devices to be level 0/1 registered by end of May, 2017.
  • UIDAI will discontinue all the public devices starting mid-July, 2017.

The following table depicts the comparison between Public and Registered Devices:
