We are happy to share that UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) is now integrated with DigiLocker as a registered issuer. With this, over 1.09 Billion (109 crores) people in the country can now access their digital Aadhaars in realtime through the DigiLocker desktop and mobile applications. This is DigiLocker’s biggest document integration till date and hopefully will prove to be a catalyst in popularising it throughout the country. Apart from Aadhaar, other national digital documents already available on the platform – 290 million Driving Licenses and Vehicle Registration Certificates (issued by Ministry of Road Transport & Highways), 150 million LPG Records (issued by Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas), 10 million CBSE markskeets & certificates etc. You can see the entire issuer list on our statistics page (look under ‘Registered Issuers’).

How does the DigiLocker-Aadhaar integration work?

UIDAI issues all Aadhaar card holders a digitised version of the card called eAadhaar. This can be downloaded from the UIDAI website (https://eaadhaar.uidai.gov.in/) after entering relevant details and authenticating oneself. You can then store it somewhere on your computer or some cloud account. But now with the DigiLocker-UIDAI integration, you can get this digital copy of Aadhaar directly in your DigiLocker account. All you have to do is to sign up for a DigiLocker and sync it with Aadhaar – the digital Aadhaar automatically shows up in your issued documents section. It can be shared and used like any DigiLocker document. Another advantage is that your digital Aadhaar now has a fixed and secure storage location – you know where to look for it when needed.

Here is a demo showing how you can get your digital Aadhaar on the DigiLocker desktop & mobile applications.

So if you haven’t already done, get your digital Aadhaar now. Sign up for DigiLocker!
