Aadhar Details Leakage Does Not Mean A Compromise Of Your Bank Account

An identity document showing evidence of every resident person in India is known as Aadhaar. It is single yet most effective evidence of the Aadhaar cardholder about his or her profile. UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) is the body that regulates the entire system of enrollment. Aadhar enrollment centers work under the umbrella of the UIDAI to register as many residents as possible. Within a decade, a large population of the country has been enrolled in the UIDAI database. In order to qualify as an Aadhaar applicant, one has to be in India for a minimum of 182 days in a year. We would like to make it clear that Aadhaar is not for NRI (Non-Resident Indian). You can get your Aadhaar card simply by paying a visit to your nearest Aadhar enrollment center. Please keep in mind that the applicant can apply for the Aadhar by submitting the required documents. It will take around 90 days from the date of application to get your Aadhaarhard copy card at your registered address. You can get Eaadhar quite earlier from the UIDAI web portal. The enrollment fee is zero as the Government wants to enroll as many people as possible to make its population statistics up to date. At the time of Aadhar enrollment, Aadhar center staff will take your biometric and demographic details.

As discussed earlier, Aadhaar is the most important document that can link you to every system in India. This is the reason, Government of India is fully utilizing its power in every sector. Not only it is an effective controlling tool but also eliminates duplication of data and resources. The Government’s initiatives such as linking Aadhaar with PAN card as well as with bank accounts is the result of this. But as each and every service is going to be mapped with Aadhaar, there is a feeling found among people that if their Aadhaar details get leaked, they will be in trouble. They believe that by accessing Aadhaar details, one can easily enter into the linked bank account and can wipe out all the money in the bank account.

Keeping in view of the confusion found in the general public regarding hacking of bank account due to leaked Aadhaar details, the Government has made it clear that no one can access your bank just because of your leaked Aadhaar details. The system is strong enough that no one can play it just using leaked Aadhaar details. This can be explained with a simple example that if someone gets your ATM card, he or she cannot withdraw funds from your bank account without knowing the Pin. Likewise, in order to withdraw money from your bank account, OTP, Pin, and debit card are the perquisites in addition to the Aadhaar. So, people should not get worried in case their Aadhaar details get leaked as there is no harm going to happen with their bank balances, UIDAI clarifies.
