Aadhar card is a unique identity card which has been implemented by the government of India for all the citizens of India. The main aim behind developing this card is to reduce redundancy. For obtaining an Aadhar card proper procedure is required to be done along with the physical presence for the bio-metrics details.
- Every citizens of India is eligible to have an Aadhar card be it infants or an adult. If the age of a child is below 3 years then the parents will give their bio-metric specification on behalf the child for obtaining an Aadhar card for the child. Once the child attain the age of 5 year then he will be liable to give his bio-metric specification (fingerprints and iris scanning). After the child attains the age of 15 years again the same details will be taken as the bio-metrics changes with the age.
- Indian citizens who stay outside the country i.e. abroad are also liable to have this card as a poof of Identity.
- Foreigners residing in India can also avail this facility and obtain an Aadhar card as the card does not grant any kind of citizenship. So merely having an Aadhar card does not really mean that you are an Indian.
- Any educational qualification as such is not required. If you are residing in India that gives you a license to obtain an Aadhar card from the concerned officials.
The criterion for obtaining an Adhaar card is very minimal and relaxed. The main idea behind providing an Aadhar cad is to provide identity to every citizen who resides in India. Adhaar card is an advantage for both the citizens and the government. Being a citizen we need to carry different documents to provide our identity and address proof, but Aadhar card has given solution to this problem. So now only Adhaar will work as both identity as well as Address proof. Government can keep record of every citizen through the 12 digit unique number mentioned on the Adhaar card, means a unique number is assigned to every registered member.
