Know How You Can Get A DigiLocker Account!
DigiLocker is a secure cloud based platform for storage, sharing and verification of documents & certificates.
UIDAI issues all Aadhaar card holders a digitised version of the card called eAadhaar. This can be downloaded from the UIDAI website (https://eaadhaar.uidai.gov.in/) after entering relevant details and authenticating oneself. You can then store it somewhere on your computer or some cloud account. But now with the DigiLocker-UIDAI integration, you can get this digital copy of Aadhaar directly in your DigiLocker account. All you have to do is to sign up for a DigiLocker and sync it with Aadhaar – the digital Aadhaar automatically shows up in your issued documents section. It can be shared and used like any DigiLocker document. Another advantage is that your digital Aadhaar now has a fixed and secure storage location – you know where to look for it when needed.
Apart from #Aadhaar, other national digital documents already available on the platform –290 million Driving Licenses and Vehicle Registration Certificates (issued by Ministry of Road Transport & Highways), 150 million LPG Records (issued by Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas), 10 million CBSE markskeets & certificates etc. You can see the entire issuer list on our statistics page (look under ‘Registered Issuers’).
Signing up for DigiLocker is easy. All you need is your mobile number.
Your mobile number will be authenticated by sending an OTP (one-time password) followed by selecting a username & password. This will create your DigiLocker account.
After your DigiLocker account is successfully created, you can voluntarily provide your Aadhaar number (issued by #UIDAI) to avail additional services.
