The Aadhaar card has become an extremely important document in India today. It is not only the widest used photo identity proof but also serves as a mandatory document for several processes such as opening of a bank account or creating a Demat account.

In addition to this, it is also necessary to hold an Aadhaar card in order to benefit from various social security schemes. Thus, the importance of the card has been established.

However, the problem that arises is that most people had applied for the card several years ago, due to which, their photographs are old. This can be problematic in many cases as the face changes with age and it can be a hindrance when it comes to security checks verified by Aadhaar.
