Update on Aadhaar Cards: How to Protect Yourself From Financial Frauds

New Delhi: The Aadhaar card is unlike any other document; its widespread adoption and service connection have aided the government in facilitating India’s digitalization effort. From your PAN to your bank account, everything is linked to your Aadhaar UID, and the process, which previously required trips to offices, can now be completed online while sitting in the comfort of your own home.

However, some people have used the Aadhaar and PAN card details for illegal purposes. People’s Aadhaar and PAN numbers have been illegally taken and used to commit financial fraud in their names on numerous occasions. Illegally obtained data was used to obtain a small loan and financing services without the knowledge of the person whose PAN and Aadhaar details were used.

As a result, it’s critical to avoid such scams and protect your personal information. There are a few things you can do if you’re concerned about the security of your documents, such as your PAN and Aadhaar.
