adhar-PVC

Aadhaar, the world’s largest biometric identification system, was launched in 2009 and has been encouraged by the Government of India to ideally situate residents of the country in order to deliver subsidies, benefits, and services by using the resident’s PVC Aadhaar number only as a form of identification.

Aadhaar’s purpose over the course of time has evolved, from disbursing social welfare schemes to assuring equal financial services access such as banking accounts, credit, insurance, remittances, and pensions.

In addition to an Aadhaar Card, the UIDAI has made it possible for citizens of the country to download eAadhaar, Aadhaar Letter, mAadhaar, and PVC Aadhaar Card. Citizens have the option to either obtain, download, or place an order for all forms of Aadhaar via online means, and users can choose any of them according to their needs and preferences.

What is a PVC Aadhaar Card?

A unique 12-digit electronic identification number known as Aadhar card is the foundation of the Indian national government’s financial inclusion agenda. When Indian people request financial services, financial organisations such as insurance companies and banks use this number to authenticate their identity.

UIDAI issues PVC Aadhaar Cards as one of many types of Aadhaar Card. It is a more compact and dynamic form of the usual paper-like Aadhaar that may be presented or cited for a variety of purposes. The card is entirely made of PVC and has smart features such as a secure QR code, micro text, ghost image, hologram, guilloche design, printing and issuance dates, and an embossed Aadhaar logo.
