How to book appointment to avail Aadhaar services?

Aadhaar is a unique 12 digit number for identification issued for Indian citizens and residents. This document also contains the biometric information and the demographic details of the individual. Issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the document can be used to prove the identity of an individual in the country.

Today, Aadhaar eKYC (Electronic Know Your Customer) is an important step, be it for availing governmental benefits and subsidies, or for opening a bank/loan account, or for onboarding customers. Aadhaar eKYC is carried out by the UIDAI and it is the electronic version of the process of KYC (Know Your Customer). The process of Aadhaar eKYC helps to curb fraudulent practices, money laundering, and theft of identity to a great extent.

Aadhaar eKYC is performed using Aadhaar authentication. The Aadhaar number of the individual along with the demographic details and biometric information gets submitted to the UIDAI for verification of identity. The UIDAI compares the submitted information with one stored on the database and answers with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ thereby approving or rejecting the request for eKYC.
