Aadhaar Card Verification - Everything You Need to Know

Table of Contents

Identifying fake and ghost identities is one of the major challenges organizations face these days. Is the authenticity of the third parties or business partners verified before they are being onboarded? Are there any frauds or risks associated with them? In an era where third-party risks are in the news daily and frauds seem to be rising annually, every organization needs Aadhaar card verification to validate the genuineness of the parties and reduce the risk of compliance failures.

While onboarding individuals or business entities on the platform, Aadhaar card verification ensures that the entity which is being onboarded is not fraudulent and is an individual who s/he claims to be. This applies across use cases like bank account opening, lending journeys, real money gaming withdrawals, third-party onboarding, insurance journeys, and many more. 

It is one of the key practices that organizations use before onboarding the following:

1) Partner Onboarding (like delivery partners, or gig workers)

2) Customer Onboarding (for KYC and AML in case of financial institutions)

3) Supplier Onboarding, Merchant & Vendor Onboarding (across different industries)

4) Real money gaming players (for secured online money transactions)

5) Employee verification

 

The How of Aadhaar Card Verification

The Aadhaar Card number serves as proof of identity and address across India. It is a 12-digit unique identification number allotted by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). The number is unique as it is linked to the individual biometrics and it cannot be duplicated. By conducting Aadhaar Card verification, organizations can track fake and ghost identities and take preventive actions right at the initial stages of onboarding. What’s better than Aadhaar number verification is instant online Aadhaar verification using Aadhaar card verification API.

Aadhaar-based identification enables organizations to eliminate duplicates or fake identities and ensure that only genuine people are associating with crucial business functions. Organizations can contact the central Unique Identification database from anywhere in the country to authenticate a beneficiary’s identity by availing of authentication services.
