What is eKYC ?
The eKYC service offered by UIDAI will enable individuals to authorise service providers to
receive electronic copy of their proof of identity and address. This is a first of its kind service, on any
public platform. The service makes ekYC instantaneous, totally secure and paperless while enhancing
privacy of data. It brings business efficiency and opens doors to innovative service provision in a
manner never experienced before on a comparable scale.
eKYC service can be deployed by different agencies to verify a resident’s identity and address. Only
DEMOGRAPHIC information (Name, Address, Date of Birth, Gender, Photograph & Mobile Number)
that is collected during Aadhaar enrolment will be shared, at the request of, and/or with the consent
of the Aadhaar number holder.
