Aadhar card is an individual identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India on orders of the Government of India. This is done to establish the single and unique identification of every single person. It serves as proof of your address too. The biometric i.e. photography, fingerprint, iris scan and demographic information data of the residents are saved in a centralized manner and a unique 12-digit identity number is generated. It is made for everybody irrespective of the age that means even children as young as one year of age have aadhar cards because the whole sole purpose of it is identification. Unlike the Rashaan card, every member of the family needs to have a separate identity and hence each one has its own Aadhar card. The entire process of Aadhar generation is free of cost i.e. nothing is to be paid.
