India's DigiLocker and UIDAI (Aadhaar) are now integrated

DigiLocker, is the national Digital Locker System launched by Govt. of India  in February 2016. From the time of its launch, the usage of the system is gradually picking up pace, with more awareness and benefit cases being realized by citizens.

DigiLocker is a key initiative under Digital India, the Government of India's flagship program aimed at transforming India into a digitally empowered society.

In an recent upgrade, DigiLocker is now integrated with UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), making this the biggest integration of two systems. This integration between DigiLocker and UIDAI means that over 1.09 billion people in India, the number so far covered under the Aadhaar initiative,  can now access their digital Aadhaar in real-time through the DigiLocker desktop and
mobile applications.

Through the DigiLocker integration, one can get the digital copy of their Aadhaar directly in their DigiLocker account, without taking the risk of storing it (on one's computer or cloud account) and losing it.

Also the system is gradually ramping up to pull relevent documents from various government agencies automatically in the system on your request. So once you have logged in thoughthe system you can pull Driving Licenses and Vehicle Registration Certificates (issued by the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways).LPG records (issued by the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas), CBSE mark sheets and certificates, etc.. Since all these are connected via the Aadhaar no. or using your registered mobile no.

Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh have the highest user bases, with almost 1.8 million registered users each.  With 4.2 million users in the country, this linkage with UIDAI will lead to more signups for DigiLockers.
