Aadhaar is one of the most sought after identity and address proof documents across the country. The UIDAI is mandated to assign a 12-digit unique identification (UID) number to all the residents of India. The number is linked to the resident's basic demographic and biometric information such as a photograph, ten fingerprints and two iris scans, which are stored in a centralized database.
