5 Benefits of Having a Aadhaar Card

1) Unique Identity

As Aadhaar has a unique number it is very difficult to have it forged as it is linked to our biometrics.

2) Portability

Aadhaar is a universal number, and agencies and services can contact the Central Unique Identification database from anywhere in the country to confirm a beneficiary's identity.

3) Electronic benefit transfers

The UID-enabled-Bank-Account network will offer a secure and low cost platform to directly remit benefits to residents without the heavy costs associated today with benefit distribution.

4) Aadhaar-based authentication

This will help for clear accountability and transparent system which will help to improve the quality. The UIDAI will offer online authentication services for agencies who wish to validate a resident's identity. This service will enable confirmation of the entitlement actually reaching the intended beneficiary.

5) Self-service puts residents in control

Using Aadhaar as an authentication mechanism, residents should be able to access up-to-date information about their entitlements, demand services and redress their grievances directly from their mobile phone, kiosks or other means.

In the case of self-service on the resident's mobile, security is assured using two-factor authentication (i.e. by proving possession of the resident's registered Mobile Number and knowledge of the resident's Aadhaar PIN). These standards are compliant with the Reserve Bank of India's approved standards for Mobile Banking and Payments.
