Aadhaar card is a unique number that is linked with individual biometric to identify fake and ghost identities. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) issues Aadhaar number to residents only after de-duplicating their demographic and biometric attributes against its entire database. Aadhaar authentication enables elimination of duplicates under various schemes and is expected to generate substantial savings to the government exchequer. It also provides the government with accurate data on beneficiaries, enables direct benefit programs, and allows the government departments/service providers to coordinate and optimize various schemes. Aadhaar is a universal number and one of the important documents that can be used for several purposes, including availing government benefits and acting as photo identity.
UIDAI has announced a major Aadhaar update, keeping Covid 19 challenges. UIDAI through its Twitter handle informed that Aadhaar holders can now make changes in their Aadhaar details from the comfort of their home. They can do it online, without having to go to any Aadhaar Kendra. Although, for some facilities, mentioned by UIDAI, you will have to go to Aadhaar Center and get the changes done.
