Keep in mind that deadlines and policies can change, and it’s always best to rely on the most current and accurate information from official channels.
Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), a statutory authority established by the Government of India. Aadhaar is the world’s largest biometric ID system and serves as proof of identity and address for residents in India.
Key features of Aadhaar:
- Unique Identification: Each Aadhaar number is unique to an individual and is linked to their biometric and demographic data.
Biometric Data: Aadhaar captures biometric information, including fingerprints and iris scans, to ensure a higher level of authentication.
Demographic Information: In addition to biometrics, Aadhaar contains basic demographic information such as name, date of birth, gender, and address.
Authentication: Aadhaar can be used for various services and transactions, such as opening bank accounts, getting a SIM card, receiving government benefits, and more. It serves as a means of authentication for individuals.
Online Services: Individuals can update their Aadhaar details, check the status of the Aadhaar, and download e-Aadhaar (an electronic version of Aadhaar) online through UIDAI’s official website.
It’s important to note that Aadhaar has been a topic of discussion and debate in India, with concerns raised about privacy and security. The government has taken steps to address these concerns and enhance the security features of Aadhaar.
For the most current and accurate information about Aadhaar, it’s recommended to refer to the official UIDAI website or contact their helpline.
