Can I use my Aadhar card as a proof of identity or address for government schemes and subsidies?

Yes, you can use your Aadhaar card as a proof of identity or address for various government schemes and subsidies. The Aadhaar card is a valid and widely accepted document for availing government services and benefits. It serves as a proof of identity, proof of address, and also contains your biometric information, making it a secure and convenient identification document.

Many government schemes and subsidy programs require the applicants to provide their Aadhaar card details to establish their identity and eligibility. Aadhaar is used for various purposes such as opening bank accounts, applying for government scholarships, accessing healthcare services, filing income tax returns, and more.

However, it is always advisable to check the specific requirements and guidelines of the scheme or subsidy program you wish to apply for, as different programs may have their own set of document requirements.
