The DigiLocker is a digital platform that is introduced by the Government of India's Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY).

This digital platform is launched under the Digital India Corporation (DIC). The goal of DigiLocker is to minimise the use of physical documents. It will also help to enable agency-wide storage of electronic documents.

It is important to note that the Digital Aadhaar of DigiLocker is similar to the UIDAI's eAadhaar.

DigiLocker has partnered with UIDAI to make it accessible to the users instantly after they link the account of DigiLocker to their Aadhaar card.
