In today’s date, the Aadhaar number has been made necessary to take advantage of every government scheme. Apart from this, at the time of getting a new SIM card and opening an account in the bank, it is necessary to give the Aadhaar number first. Also, Aadhaar is used as an address proof. Admission of children also requires an Aadhaar card.
The question may be arising in your mind that even the Aadhar card of pocket-size was made earlier. Then what is new in this? UIDAI itself has said that the quality of printing and lamination of new PVC cards is better. It will last for many years. Apart from this, with the new PVC Aadhaar card, the authenticity of the card will be confirmed immediately through the QR code. There will be no technical problems with this.
With this new initiative of UIDAI, everyone will no longer need to keep a large size Aadhaar card or printing copy. Only remove the PVC Aadhaar card from the wallet and use it for everything. UIDAI has given information about this by tweeting. ‘Your Aadhaar now comes in a size that you can carry in your wallet.’

Apart from this, it is also equipped with modern security features. A hologram, Guilloche pattern, Ghost Image, and micro text features have been given in this new cord for security.
