Now get Aadhaar verification done offline, users get power to revoke eKYC consent

New Delhi: Now people can get their Aadhaar verification done offline by sharing a digitally-signed document generated by the Unique Identity Authority of India which will contain only the last 4 digits of the Aadhaar number assigned to the holder, according to new rules published by the government.

The Aadhaar (Authentication and Offline Verification) Regulations 2021 notified on November 8 and published on the official website on Tuesday have laid down a detailed process to enable offline verification of the Aadhaar for e-Know Your Customer process.

The UIDAI has added QR Code Verification, Aadhaar Paperless Offline e-KYC verification, e-Aadhaar verification, offline paper-based verification, and any other type of offline verification introduced by the authority from time to time apart from existing mechanisms on online verification.

The rule gives Aadhaar holder choice to share as a digitally signed document, “Aadhaar Paperless Offline e-KYC”, generated by the UIDAI containing the last 4 digits of Aadhaar number, demographic data like name, address, gender, and date of birth, and photograph of the Aadhaar number holder, etc with an authorized agency for e-KYC.

The Aadhaar number and demographic information of the Aadhaar number holder obtained from the holder is matched with the demographic information in the central database.

The other mode of verifications like one-time pin and biometric-based authentication will also continue along with offline options. Agencies authorized to verify Aadhaar data may choose any suitable mode of authentication and even opt for multiple-factor authentication for enhancing security. The new rules allow Aadhaar number holders to revoke the consent given to any verification agency for storing their e-KYC data at any time.
