Aadhar card provides a 12-digit identification number to the applicant. NRIs, PIOs, and OCIs are no exception from it.

An individual may fall prey to foreign laws if he/she fails to show evidence of his/ her identification. Having it provides security blanket to face off any query of suspicious identity. This is why American social security card and Canada’s social security number are issued. Both serve the similar motive. Likewise, India facilitates Aadhar Card to every individual for proving authentic identity.
