About Aadhaar Card:
The Indian government started the unique identification programme many years ago. It has become a valid and unique proof of identification in India.
UIDAI is a government organization formed to make adhar card and maintain the aadhaar data. All the process related to this card is digital.
UIDAI gives unique 12 digit number to the citizens. They store all the demographic data of the people. This also includes biometric information like iris print and fingerprint.
The use of biometric data restricts people from making duplicate or fake adhar card. Hence this enables government to get rid of fake accounts.
Therefore the government is slowly making the aadhar card mandatory in various places. Today you need it to get benefits from many government schemes which are meant for public welfare.
Almost 90% of the Indian population has enrolled for this card. If you are not residing in India, then you can enroll whenever you visit India.
