Aadhar Based Verification

Aadhaar is the base of India’s ID verification system

Aadhaar was introduced for the citizens of India to provide a unique and single identification document. Since a large number of documents are required today for identification purposes, such as PAN cards, Passport, driving license and ration cards, Aadhaar card holds significant as a unique identity for an individual. It does not intend to replace the existing identification documents but can be used in several places where an identification proof is required.
Aadhaar is a 12 digit number that contains all the details of an individual. Individuals who reside in the country and fulfill all the requirements mentioned by UIDAI can enroll for their Aadhaar.
