It can be done using sudo or by obtaining. However if a user has a genuine need for root access then maybe it is easier to give them the root password.

If you mean how can a user obtain root priveleges the I would remind you that hacker/cracker posts are not allowed.

duplicate the uid of root user and allote it to the ordinary user

Give your techs normal user access and then give them sudo access to the commands they need only after verified why it is needed. Root access shouldn't just be blindly handed out and should also be very limited.
