Very recently there was an announcement from the Central Government that the NRI (non resident Indians) will also be issued Aadhaar card which was earlier known as Unique Identification card or UID. This card is being put forth as a national identity and will carry a unique sixteen digit number affiliated to each individual. Earlier, the provision of Aadhar card was only for the Indian residents. But now, keeping in view the connection of NRI with the country, the government has added a special provision of issuing this card to the non resident Indians as well. The specialty of an Aadhar card is that the number given is connected to the centralized data base. This data base includes biometric, demographic and other relevant information, which is necessary for identifying a person.
Steps for fulfilling Aadhar card for NRI formalities
Verification of documents: The Aadhar card issuing center will first go through all your documents that are to be submitted for establishing your identity as an NRI. Along with documents such as birth certificate, school certificate and photo identity card, an NRI will also have to produce his connection with America or other country of which he is holding the Green card. Other documents related to his stay and service in the foreign land can also be expected to be produced in case of query.
Finger tip biometric scanning: The officials will perform biometric scanning of all the ten fingers which would be considered important for establishing perfect identity. For this, the person will have to come down to the Aadhar card enrolment center personally. No formalities will be completed online in this regard.
Biometric scanning of Iris: Apart from finger tips, your Iris will be scanned for further making a perfect identity.
Photograph: Lastly your photograph will be taken by the web-cam and added to the overall Aadhar card documents.
