In a leading dailiy report, now world's online seller that has fast made its much coveted space in the Indian markets, Amazon India has also asked customers to put in their Aadhaar details so as to better track customer orders in case they happen to be lost during the supply.

Cab aggregators have also hailed the idea and some of the not so popular rental services are demanding Aadhaar as a mandate for availing tax services from them.
Others in the line up to ask you to provide Aadhaar details are mobile wallet companies including Paytm and Cab aggregators' majors such as Uber and Ola.
