With a view to curb any misuse, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has said that before accepting an Aadhaar either in physical or electronic form for establishing identity of an individual, the entities concerned should verify it.

The UIDAI has maintained that verification of Aadhaar number following the consent of the Aadhaar holder is the right step to establish genuineness of any form of Aadhaar (Aadhaar letter, e-Aadhaar, Aadhaar PVC card, and m-Aadhaar) presented by an individual.

Officials said that it prohibits unscrupulous elements, and anti-social elements from indulging in any possible misuse. It also promotes usage hygiene, and reasserts the UIDAI's stand that any 12-digit number is not an Aadhaar. Tampering of Aadhaar documents can be detected by offline verification, and tampering is a punishable offence and liable for penalties under Section 35 of the Aadhaar Act.

The UIDAI has requested the state governments to emphasise the need for verification before usage, and has urged the states to give necessary direction so that whenever Aadhaar is submitted as a proof of identity, authentication/verification of the resident is performed by the concerned entity using Aadhaar as an identity document.

Officials said that UIDAI has also issued circulars addressing requesting entities, authorised to do authentication/verification, and other entities emphasising the necessity of verification, and specifying the protocol to be followed.

Any Aadhaar can be verified using the QR code available on all forms of Aadhaar (Aadhaar letter, e-Aadhaar, Aadhaar PVC card, and m-Aadhaar) using mAadhaar App, or Aadhaar QR code Scanner. The QR code scanner is freely available for both Android and iOS based mobile phones, as well as window-based applications.
