The Aadhaar issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is currently one of the most important documents one can carry. Since the introduction of the Aadhaar cards in 2009, it has been part of our daily life. From renting a car to drawing on pension insurance, aadhaar is mandatory for everyone.

Today we are telling you about the 10 most important things you need your aadhaar proof for.

Overall proof

The UIDAI Aadhaar card is recognized nationwide and is accepted almost everywhere as proof of identity.

International travel

If you are an Indian citizen and want to travel abroad, you will need an Aadhaar card to either issue a passport or renew a new one.


For higher studies and performance tests such as JEE, NEET, etc., Aadhaar must be presented as proof of identification.

Banking services

Aadhar is mandatory for anyone wishing to open a bank account, especially in the savings account category.

Cooking gas

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), or gas cylinders for cooking, are widely used in many Indian households. To book these cylinders for your home, you need to provide Aadhaar data as proof of address and identity.


An Aadhar card is mandatory if you want to take advantage of your retirement savings and enjoy all the benefits.
