New Delhi: The Ministry of Railways on Wednesday permitted the use of m-Aadhaar as one of the prescribed proofs of identity for railway passengers during rail travel in any reserved class.
m- Aadhar is a mobile app launched by UIDAI on which a person can download his or her Aadhar Card. It can be done only on the mobile number to which Aadhar has been linked.
The m- Aadhar app aims to provide an interface to Aadhar number holders to carry their demographic information, which is, name, date of birth, gender and address along with photograph by linking their Aadhar number to their smart phones.
Railway Ministry said a person has to open the app and enter his or her password to show the Aadhar Card.
