Sub: Accepting m-Aadhaar as one of the prescribed proofs of identity.
Please refer to this office letter of even number dated 23.05.2017 (CC No. 35 of 2017) regarding accepting e-Aadhaar as one of the prescribed proofs of identity. Another request has now been received for accepting m-Aadhaar also as a proof identity for undertaking journey in any reserved class.
2. The matter has been examined and it was found that UIDAI has launched a mobile app m-Aadhaar on which a person can download his/her Aadhaar. It can be done only on the mobile number to which Aadhaar has been linked. For showing Aadhaar, the person has to open the app and enter his/her password to show the Aadhaar card.
3. It is desired that the m-Aadhaar when shown by the passenger on his/her mobile after entering the password should be accepted as proof of identity for undertaking journey in any reserved class.
4. Necessary instructions may be issued to all concerned accordingly.
