Aadhaar adoption and usage by residents continue to progress across the country. Unique Identification Authority of India- UIDAI today released its October Monthly Progress and Achievement Report in which it has said that during October this year, over 175.44 crore authentication transactions were carried out through Aadhaar. It said, a majority of these monthly transactions were done by using fingerprint biometric authentication, followed by demographic and OTP authentication. The number of face authentication transactions jumped from 4.67 lakh in September to over 37 lakh in October.

Face authentication is facilitating pensioners to generate digital life certificates at home thus promoting ease of living for senior citizens. Similarly, in October alone, 23.56 crore e-KYC transactions were executed using Aadhaar, and the cumulative number of e-KYC transactions via Aadhaar has now gone up to 1321.49 crore by the end of October 2022.

Aadhaar e-KYC service is increasingly playing a crucial role in banking and non-banking financial services by providing transparent and improved customer experience, and aiding ease of doing business.

So far, over 1100 welfare schemes in the country run by both centres and states have been notified to use Aadhaar. The digital ID is helping various ministries and departments in the center and at States in improving efficiency, transparency and delivery of welfare services to the targeted beneficiaries.
