The UIDAI slashed Aadhaar's authentication charges. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has reduced the authentication fees for the Aadhaar card to just ₹ 3 per application.

"I think it gives a cost-effective and non-repudiable solution to fintech companies to onboard new customers. That is where the power lies and KYC of the Aadhar provides lifetime and reusable identity which is the power of the Aadhaar system," further added Garg.

The UIDAI had also recently announced some changes regarding the Aadhaar card download. Cardholders without a registered mobile phone number can now download their Aadhaar directly from the UIDAI website.

A couple of days ago, Prime Minister Modi announced the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission that will provide a digital health ID to the public.
