Right now, the Aadhaar card is the strongest identity proof for the citizens of India. It contains a lot of information like name, address, mobile number, date of birth, and a photograph of the citizen. The aadhaar number is a 12-digit number which is unique for every citizen. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has been given the authority to provide aadhaar card to every citizen of India.
