UIDAI’s objective is to issue an Aadhaar number to every resident in India so as to enable residents with portable identity which can be authenticated anytime anywhere. The Aadhaar platform helps service providers authenticate identity of residents electronically, in a safe and quick manner, making service delivery more cost effective and efficient.
Following additional services are available to the Aadhaar number holders and service providers:
- Verify Aadhaar Number:This will enable service providers and Aadhaar number holders to verify if the Aadhaar number is valid and is not deactivated
- Verify Email/Mobile Number: Aadhaar number holder’s registered mobile number is essential to access Aadhaar online services as well as Aadhaar enabled benefits. Residents can verify their already registered email address and mobile number
- Lock/Unlock Biometrics: Aadhaar number holders can secure their biometric authentication by locking their biometrics. Once locked, same cannot be used by anyone for authentication. Residents can unlock their biometrics before any biometric authentications transaction.
- Check Aadhaar & Bank Account Linking Status: : Aadhaar holders can check if their Aadhaar is linked to their bank account. Aadhaar Linking status is fetched from NPCI Server. Under any circumstance, UIDAI shall not be responsible or liable for the correctness of the displayed status. Further, UIDAI is not storing any information fetched from NPCI server.
