E – Aadhar card – Understand the website

UIDAI or Unique Identification authority of India is a government agency of India. It’s objective is pretty specific and to the point, it mainly aims to collect demographic and biometric of residents of India. They’ve tried to store the data in a centralized database system for future reference, provide people with 12 digits unique identification number called as Aadhar.

Aadhar card was launched on 28th January 2009, and since then has provided 1.07 billion Aadhar numbers across India. Aadhar card is an only document that has not been declared as a voluntary service than a mandatory document.

On 23rd September 2013, The supreme court of India ordered to keep the document as voluntary instead of mandatory, as well as “no one should suffer for not having Aadhar card” as the government cannot deny services to a resident of India, especially if she or he does not possess Aadhar card.
