New Delhi: Currently, Aadhaar card is one of the most important documents as an identity card. It serves as proof of identity anywhere in the country. One’s details like iris scan, fingerprint and photograph are linked with Aadhaar card. Also, Aadhaar card and PAN card linking is necessary for income tax return filing. UIDAI collects demographic and biometric data of an individual and issues Aadhaar card so that specific government benefits and subsidies can be allocated transparently to all citizens of the country.
Aadhaar card contains a 12-digit unique identification number and should be checked from time to time whether the Aadhaar number is still active. Because Aadhaar card can be deactivated due to various reasons without your knowledge. For example, Aadhaar card may become inactive if there is a mismatch with the biometrics details or if you do not update your children’s biometrics after 5 years and 15 years. Apart from that, there are some fraudsters who create fake Aadhaar cards. That is why UIDAI has to verify. But there is no need to go anywhere to check it. You can check at home with a QR code.
