What is Aadhaar authentication?
Aadhaar authentication can be understood as the process wherein Aadhaar number (UID), along with other attributes including biometrics, is submitted to the Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR) for verification, the UIDAI explains on its website. This verification takes place on the basis of information or data or documents available with the CIDR, the Aadhaar issuing authority adds.
