Indian Railways permits m-Aadhaar as ID proof for travellers

Indian Railways on 13 September 2017 permitted passengers to show m-Aadhaar, digital version of the Aadhaar card, as proof of identity in any reserved class.

For the purpose of showing Identity proof, a passenger has to open the app and enter his/her password to show the card.

Passengers will be allowed to undertake the train journey in any reserved class only when they will show m-Aadhaar on their mobile after entering the password.

The m-Aadhaar is a mobile app launched by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on which a person can download his/her Aadhaar card. However, it can only be downloaded on the mobile number to which Aadhaar has been linked.
