With the challenge of moving our whole public administration framework to an Information Technology driven one, in order to be more viable and effective, Digital India initiative plays an important role in conveying this objective. The ultimate aim is to guarantee all the services through electronic medium. But it can happen if the technological foundation is carried out as per global standard. Our aim is to make an e-empowered and information driven financial powerhouse. To achieve this target, a great deal should be done and contributed by all sections of the society. We require significantly more push to ensure e-governance in the country, spread of electronic services, products and creation of job opportunities

One such initiative is the Aadhaar card linked to digital locker. With the Aadhaar card digital document storage service available, people who has Aadhaar card will be able to keep valuable e- documents at one place empowering accessibility of the documents electronically and online by means of secure connection with the goal that you don’t have to require to exhibit the documents physically to different authorities. Now, every individual will be enabled to keep these documents on her/his name based on the Aadhaar number. With the majority of the regions having 80%-90% coverage, the concerned department has come forward with the programme so that the documents are saved in the locker.

The Aadhaar-linked DigiLocker is a part of the government’s most ambitious digital India initiative undertaken, which will empower individuals to keep their documents secured. For example, identity, address proof, educational qualification, property etc in a paperless configuration in the archive’s free storage space.

With the digilocker, citizens will not only be able to keep their documents online secured but will also be able to e-sign the documents.

  • No more use of physical documents will be reduced
  • Administrative overhead will be reduced
  • Overhead of verifying the authenticity by the citizens of India will be reduced
  • Citizens of India will be able to have an access to their locker anytime anywhere

So, any citizen of India who holds a aadhaar card and aadhaar card linked mobile number is capable to apply for a digilocker. We are here working towards going forward with the digital India programme and looking forward for more people to join hand with us. Without education, the underprivileged section of the society is socially and developmentally marginalized and without employable skills, doomed to continue into poverty. With IT- education they will lead a better future, while at the same time contributing to the nation.
