Aadhaar card has a 12-digit unique identification number tied to an individual’s fingerprints, face and eye scan. It is a document that serves as a proof of address and identity, and aims to prevent theft and leakage in India’s welfare schemes.
Why is Aadhaar Masking made mandatory by the government?
While conducting Aadhaar Card verification there is a risk of misusing the personal information by fraudulent entities. These flagged privacy concerns have pushed the government to make the masked Aadhaar mandatory.
How a masked Aadhaar prevents identity frauds and scams?
A masked Aadhaar adds an extra layer of protection on the Aadhaar card by masking the initial 8 digits of the Aadhaar number and the QR code – only keeping the last 4 digits readable. It can be shared/stored without revealing any sensitive information. A masked aadhaar reduces the user scams and can be easily used in situations where providing the Aadhaar number is not required.
In May 2019, RBI made some modifications in the master direction on KYC guidelines for regulated entities. One such modification made it mandatory for all the RBI-regulated institutions to mask clients’ AADHAAR cards as part of the Aadhaar e-KYC online process.
Let’s discuss the top 5 things under Aadhaar Masking Guidelines
The existing KYC process is encompassed with various stages of human intervention including collection & submission of relevant documents, scan & upload of hard copy in the management systems, and manual verification. Due to this, companies (especially baking and financial ones) have a pool of customer-proof images in their systems – uncategorised and unsegregated.
To enhance customer experience and streamline the process, it is crucial to categorize the KYC documents. Advanced technologies like AI are capable of detecting 12-digit AADHAAR numbers from images and videos. In the RBI mandated KYC guidelines, it is allowed to leverage AI and automation technology for such tasks and mask Aadhaar in minimal time.
