Aadhaar has been mandated to be linked with a number of identity proofs and payment modes to establish the individual identity of every citizen by the Government of India. Linking of the Aadhaar has helped in canceling over three crores of fake and duplicate ration cards which have helped in saving over 17,000 crores approximately every year.

Also, linking Aadhaar Card with various other important documents has helped in preventing national security threats to India by identifying the criminals, fraudsters and other such mischief doers using fake identities; also helping in preventing identity theft.

The aim of introducing the Aadhaar card was to disentangle the multiplicity of accounts to have one regular instrument of character. The point to note here is that the process of linking Aadhaar cards doesn’t take more than 5 minutes. The following are the ways in which Aadhaar can be linked with Voter ID, Mobile Number, Ration Card, and PAN.
