The Aadhaar is a 12-digit number which was introduced in April 2010, with the main objective of providing a universal identity to every resident of India. This number is unique and is based on the demographic and biometric data of the individual. The data is collected, stored, processed, and governed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). The Aadhaar helps in quick and safe validation of the identity of the individuals. The Aadhaar online portal makes service delivery more effective and economical. The direct benefit of this is the smooth flow of the Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) schemes, such as unemployment benefit, LPG subsidy, National Pension Scheme and so on.
