  • Here are some doubts regarding adhaar card.
    Please have a look and help.
    1. Can it be used as a legal proof of address.
    Yes. But there may be exceptions ( in many places PAN card is not accepted as proof of identity due to reasons such as fake cards etc.)
    2. Can i get my friend a card just by introducing him to the three registrar.(People or company who issues the card)
    Could not get you questions here. There is an introducer concept in Aadhaar system where local registrars (e.g. state government, India Post )can designate formal introducers who can vouch for residents who cannot provide proof of resident for some reason.
    3. Why IB ministry of home affairs has objected to its use in telecom industry as eKYC data in issuing sim card s.
    IB has concrens as it "cannot vouch for the process and data integrity of UIDAI since it is not aware of back-end e-systems, e-processing, and e-auditing currently in place and also on how data is transmitted between various units of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). IB also says Aadhaar cards do not contain the nationality and permanent address of the cardholder, which could lead to a general presumption that the cardholder is Indian, thus posing a security threat to India as agencies of neighbouring countries can procure this 'identity' for their agents."
