Aadhaar contains 12 digit unique number which includes biometric and demographics details attached to it issued to each and every resident of India who have applied for it.
Recently Government of India had made provision to link Aadhaar Number with Bank Account, PAN Card, Ration Card, Voter ID, LPG Connection, Mobile Connection etc. to eliminate forgery. Like Aadhaar Linking is done with various services, Aadhaar Number linking with Passport Issuance has also came in existence. Quoting Aadhaar Number when applying for Passport will allow to speed up the Passport Application Process.
Individuals who have provided their Aadhaar Number while Application of Passport can postpone their police verification as The Ministry of External Affairs is using Aadhaar Card for identification of the passport applicant on the National Crime Records Bureau for verification of the applicant’s criminal record. Unlike Passport Application Process consists of long police verification procedure which can be now skipped until the passport has been issued. The applicant will get his passport in hand just in 10 days on the terms that the applicant gets police verification done once receiving the passport.
