Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India on behalf of the Indian Government to the residents of the country. The main objective or vision of UIDAI is to empower the residents of India to have its unique identity which can easily be authenticated on any of the digital platforms. For this, the government has taken all efforts to make the Aadhaar card application process easy and simple. For this, many enrollment centers have been established where residents can visit and smoothly apply for Aadhaar card.
Whenever any resident files an Aadhaar card application, he or she is required to give documents like address proof, age proof, and identity proof. But every resident is not having every document who wishes to apply for Aadhaar card. To help the people who do not have a document to get an Aadhaar card, UIDAI has a set of a new process.
Applying for Aadhaar without documents
All those residents who have not the required documents such as identity proof or address proof at the time of filing Aadhaar application can take the help of pre-designated “ introducer”. The introducer is an authorized , notified , and identified by the registrar or regional offices. An introducer can introduce any resident of India who do not have necessary Aadhaar card related documents.
Who are introducers?
The introducer can be registrar’s employees, teachers, postmen, healthcare workers, Anganwadi, elected body members, bank manager or doctors. In certain scenarios, UIDAI has tried to gather introducers for the convenience of Aadhaar applicants. Each introducer should be linked to a registrar and one registrar can use the same introducer more than once.
