The card is necessary for getting almost all government services including obtaining a driver’s license, opening a bank account, and so on. It contains several data as the 12-digit number, person’s name, date of birth, gender and more.
One of the most reported problem is losing or misplacing the Aadhar Card. To solve this, the UIDAI has offered an option of retrieving your misplaced card and UID free of charge.
