Aadhaar card is one of the most important documents that people need to complete most official work in India. However, it is not always easy to carry an Aadhaar card because of its size, threat of it getting lost and there is always a lot of wear and tear on it if it is constantly carried around and handled. Hence, to deal with these problems and to make it easy to carry the card anywhere, UIDAI has introduced the Aadhaar PVC card which is much smaller, portable, and more durable. In its latest update, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has shown how users can order Aadhaar PVC cards for the whole family even by using their non-registered mobile numbers. The UIDAI has made the announcement via tweet, “You can use any mobile number to receive OTP for authentication, regardless of the registered mobile number with your Aadhaar. So, one person can order Aadhaar PVC cards online for the whole family.”
