Of country’s 1.2 billion population, only 50 million i.e. less than 5% hold a passport, close to 100 million people have PAN cards and another 200 million have driving licenses. A vast section of people does not have any ID proof.

Besides this when you change your city, the first problem you face is with the identity proof. As you do not have any local address or other local proof which is mandatory for everything e.g. new mobile phone connection, LPG connection, internet connection etc. But as aaadhar card is accepted everywhere, one with aadhar number need not worry for anything.

Why Aadhar card is widely accepted as identity proof

Despite you have passport, PAN card, voter id card etc, Govt. is promoting aadhar card over everything. What is the reason behind this? Why having a aadhar number is more important?

Actually these existing proofs are also unique respective of unique no. point of view. But while issuing Aadhar card you have to provide basic demographics and bio-metric information – photograph, ten fingerprints and iris etc.

Which means there is no chance of duplicity in future as your bio-metric data is completely unique. So this will make this card a complete full proof unique identification proof for you. With this card you can visit any city in India and avail any facilities without any issue. But I think right now these things are yet to confirm.

So, if you have not yet applied for your Aadhar card, then find some time to get that for you and your family. One more thing you might have noticed the commercials on DD network that you can apply your Aadhar card in any city of India. Simply visit that center and inquiry about that. But be prepared with this Aadhar card as in coming days almost every new service is going to make Aadhar card mandatory.
