Aadhaar has now occupied an indispensable space in our lives. The 12-digit unique identification number is now required for all official purposes. Right from availing government schemes, open a bank account, applying for drivers’ license, getting a mobile or internet connection to apply for jobs, an Aadhaar number is absolutely necessary to ascertain identity.
An Aadhaar card contains your name, date of birth, contact number, address and last but not the least, a 12-digit identity number. From time to time, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) urges the users to review their Aadhaar data and apply for changes if any update is required with respect to their data.
