Digital Locker to help in Aadhaar integration woes

You are currently viewing Digital Locker to help in Aadhaar integration woes

With the Government of India’s push on integrating every possible legal, financial & constitutional entity available to the citizens with Aadhaar, it is clearly an uphill task both for government and citizens.

The number of entities available with the citizens is just enormous. Imagine voter id card, PAN card, PDS cards, driving license, and then host of financial and legal requirement such as bank account, mutual funds,  insurance policies, stocks, property registration, and so on so forth all require to be linked to Aadhaar. On top of that there are people raking in all the issues about privacy and security. The threats are even more pronounced when details are handled mechanically.

Recently Kotak Mahindra Bank has given the option of   accessing digital locker on its net banking platform. The facility is available for access with single sign-on. The only things required to access digital locker is aadhaar number and the benefits include:

  • Aadhaar linked documents can automatically be fetched by DigiLocker partner institutions
  • Customers can also download pre-verified documents
  • Citizens can share them with anyone using email
  • One can also electronically sign documents using the e-Sign facility.

Government is encouraging organizations to partner with digital locker to enable easy authentication mechanism to prevent mechanical ways to integrate with Aadhaar. 

In this direction, initiative has been taken by Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, which launched the integration of DigiLocker and Driving License and Registration system. When a copy of license available in Digital Locker app (installed on citizen’s mobile) is shown to traffic policeman who wants to inspect your driving license, rest assured, it will be as good as verifying an original without having to carry it on your person. No other physical proof is required.

The enforcement official will also have the app to seamlessly verify documents from the National Register of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways which contains data of licenses and documents issued by all states.
