The Aadhaar card is a 12-digit unique identification number that is issued to every resident of India. The UIDAI functions under the planning commission of India which is responsible for managing Aadhaar numbers and issuing Aadhaar identification cards.
The Aadhaar project was initiated as an attempt towards having a single and unique identification document or number that would contain the identification details of an individual including demographic and biometric information. It helps the government pass on the benefits of welfare schemes in an efficient manner.
