New Delhi: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the organization that is the backbone behind everything related to Aadhaar, continues to create new facilities to alleviate the problems of users who have Aadhaar cards.
Recently, in the face of the pandemic, the UIDAI has announced that Aadhaar cardholders can download Aadhaar online anytime, anywhere. For this, the UIDAI has issued a direct link Aadhaar through which users can download their unique 12-digit identification, which has become an essential document in various walks of life. The Aadhaar card can be downloaded using the Aadhaar direct link eaadhaar.uidai.gov.in/ at the user’s convenience.

UIDAI is currently preparing to use Aadhaar for more use cases and collaborate with organizations such as the United Nations and the World Bank, as well as other global economies to make digital identity available in different countries.
Dr. Saurabh Garg, CEO of UIDAI said: “We are looking at quantum computing, how we can leverage the capabilities of smartphones for authentication, and perhaps how to decentralize our blockchain. We will be happy to collaborate with other nations on how they can use our architecture and systems. “
The organization will also look to leverage data analytics through artificial intelligence and machine learning for Aadhaar-based document verification.
