Benefits of making Aadhaar mandatory:

Various documentary proofs are required to identify a person, Aadhaar will reduce the burden of various identity proofs.

Various types of duplication of data can be stopped.

Fake identities can be weeded out.

The government of India has launched DigiLocker (digital locker) system for everyone for storing all personal documents securely (This is enabled by Aadhaar).

Opening a new bank account(using E-KYC).

Your new mobile connection gets activated in a flash(currently one hour, earlier 2-3 days).

Yes, making Aadhar card is mandatory because of this is the most important document in Indian identity it's required because whenever we go there firstly ask your an Aadhar card in government documents they cannot proceed without an Aadhar card even though a child's school admission process being with the Aadhar card like documents. So everyone has the necessary to kept Aadhar card using Aadhar card lots of people are helpful especially old age people who just show their Aadhar card they can roam everywhere whenever they want because they want no bus charges using their Aadhar card and the number we can easily fetch the information and get info it will detect the age proper name and address so it will help in when we have any documents related the government it's most useful and important.

As per my thinking, everything has any drawbacks also I have seen many people are not haven't Aadhar cards miss lots of opportunities because of that and also it will take a little bit of extra time to update so it's also helpful as well as some drawbacks are there.

Hello everyone,

This is really great topic is making Aadhar mandatory: Benefits and drawbacks.

Adhar card is the one card we use all from our birth. Because of the Aaadhar card we don't need to take all the documents like Pancard, driving licence, light bill and everything. It's time-consuming as well as less paperwork.

Thank you.

Aadhar card has been made compulsory for the registration of deaths. It will help the UIDAI to deactivate the Aadhaar and prevent its misuse. The Aadhaar card can be used as an identity card for Indian citizens.

Good afternoon.

First of all, I am thankful to you for giving me the opportunity to discuss on this amazing topic.

If we think about benefits and drawbacks for making Aadhaar mandatory, I can say it has more benefit as compared to demerits.

Government of India announced that Aadhaar is mandatory for all the Indian citizens, Aadhaar card is the combination of all the documentary evidence that means it is linked to the other documents such as pan card, voter id, passport, bank passbook etc, any person don't need to carry all other documents with him.

Secondly, if we think about it's security then I can say it is more secured in comparison to other document because it includes person's biometric information like fingerprints, eye scan etc. So that any fraud can't be able to misuse. But any other document does not have such facility.

If any one try to login then a massage prompt to the users registered mobile number with an OTP, and he will be notified shortly but in any other document that may not have such type of security.

On the other sense, I can say, In India there still many peoples are uneducated, that's why they can easily lost their money, due to the lack of knowledge.

Hello everyone.


1. One id of a person and resident of India has been made by biomatric so that one people can't apply for 2 I.D.

2 Aadhar linked to banks, government/private offices, educational institutions who restrict documentation fraud and help to recognize the people by OTP verification.

3. It's important to sort out criminals by police /security departments and save their time.

4. It gives us exact data of people who are registered.

5 They can get direct benefits of government schemes.

6 Aadhar can be used as an identity.

7 The data is secured by uidai, its use is safe for banking.


1. It can be used by fraud to access the detail and bank account by illiterate people demanding otp but it can be resolve by awareness.

Benefits: it is everything to identify the citizenship & security purpose based on authentication like biometric & iris, if any want to access data then send OTP to given mobile.


If Aadhar link all types of services then occur fraud. Fraud people took Aadhar with uneducated people to access all data like banking services. It can be a huge loss of that people.

According to me making Aadhar mandatory is a good initiative taken by our government Because it has more advantage than disadvantages some of the advantages are.

-it is the unique id of everyone who has full biometric of oneself include fingerprint, eye scanning, and address.

-now we do have not to carry our passport, driving license, and other documents for identification at any place.

-it is beneficial to all age persons because under the age of 18 we cannot have a passport, license pan card, and other documents.

-data in Aadhar is secured and no one can access our data until we cannot give OTP to anyone.

-it is managed by govt organization UIDAI so have not to be afraid of anything like leaking of our data.

The only drawback is a lack of awareness in uneducated people they can share their OTP by coming in a cage of hackers and fraud. But this drawback can be removed by Aware the people.

Thank you.

Hello guys,

Lets me discuss the benefits of making Aadhar mandatory:

Adhar card is a unique identity of an individual which is a national identity card given by the government. It benefits to all people because as all documents like pan card, voter id card, etc are linked to it hence no tension to carry out other documents than Aadhar.

In a bank, we can do our transactions using an Aadhar card. No scam or fraud can occur as it involves our fingerprint and no one can copy our fingerprint hence it is a safer way for transactions.

Now we will discuss drawbacks:

Some uneducated people and rural people maybe got some fraud cases because they belives in an unknown person for help and they might be doing any fraud. But this is not a big issue.

Thank you!
