India is a country of the huge population where people of different religion lives. Each and every resident of India is allowed to take a national identity card. This national identity card is called Aadhaar. It consists of 12 digits which are unique in nature. By the passage of time, the importance of the Aadhaar is increasing in every sphere of life. You cannot afford to live without it. It is a mandatory document for every age group. No matter you are a child or an older man, you must have to get an Aadhaar card otherwise you will face severe trouble in your life. From birth to death, Aadhaar is needed at every stage. In order to take admission to school, you need Aadhaar.

To get married, you need a document. If a person has died, his or her ancestors need this document to update the government record. You can obtain an Aadhar card if you live in India for 182 days or more in a given year. If you qualify the above criteria, you will fall within the definition of resident person as per Indian law. An only a resident person can apply for an Aadhaar card. If you are not a resident person, please do not use other tricks to fool the UIDAI. You will face severe legal implications due to a breach of laws and regulations. You may be convicted by a court of law that may involve severe penalty as well.

The importance of Aadhaar can further be judged from a recent event that happened in Bareilly. The news is that the woman had been deprived of his husband’s last rites just because she did not have an Aadhaar card. The village head and the caretaker of the graveyard in Bareilly stopped the woman and did not allow her to bury his husband’s dead body. The name of the dead person was Zubair while his spouse’s name is Shabnam. They have four children. Shabnam belongs to the Kanpur district. Their occupation was to sell knives and other small items in various rural parts of UP (Uttar Pradesh). Their life got a severe tragedy when Zubair took his life after a minor quarrel with his wife. Before this tragedy, they were living in a tarpaulin tent near Abhaypur and Keshopur. This area comes under the jurisdiction of the Bhojipura police station. The situation got worst and in this, a social worker Sahir Khan had to intervene.

The NGO Awam-e-Khidmaat performed the last rite of Zubair in a private graveyard. According to Sahir Khan, the woman is very poor and cannot afford to pay even a donation for the grave. Local area police have taken notice of this incident and informed the media that further investigation will be performed. Necessary action will be taken if there is something found against the villagers and graveyard’s caretaker, police said.
