Everything You Need To Know About Aadhaar

It’s the world’s largest national identification number project – India’s Aadhaar system which aims to record the basic demographic and biometric data of every resident in India, and issue them with a 12 digit unique identification number which can then be used in the administration of unemployment benefits, passports and crime databases. A programme of this size has not run without hitches, and although well over one billion Aadhaar numbers have been issued, around 15% of the population still have to enrol in the scheme.
