The government have announced that it will now be mandatory to have an Aadhaar card in order to set up a Facebook account. This will reduce the number of fake accounts that exist on the social media site.

If you already have a Facebook account then you will be required to upload an image of your card to the site in order to prevent your account becoming suspended. This will happen within 15 days so you need to act fast.

The CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed that this is the case and has offered reassurances that all personal information will be kept safe and confidential. He has also reiterated how important it is to use the Aadhaar card to guard against fake accounts.

The government is keen for every citizen to have an Aadhaar card and this was also the policy of the previous government. There are so many things that you can use the card for that it makes sense that as many people have one as possible.

It was interesting to see that when this announcement was made that the number of Indian citizens that applied for an Aadhaar card increased quite rapidly. On the other hand, most Bangladeshi citizens have a card already and so are ready to use it.

Aadhar Card has Become a Must for Senior Citizens While Traveling

On April 1, 2017, Aadhar and Unique Identification cards (UIDs) will become mandatory for senior citizens to use concerning the reservation of rail tickets. The reservations will be directly linked to these either of these cards when purchasing e-tickets and at concessions counters. Due to this, the Aadhar Card is a must for senior citizens.

This requirement is optional between January 2017 and March 2017. As soon as April 1, 2017 rolls around, the use of the cards will become mandatory. This is due to the Railway Ministry's decision to roll out the Aadhaar ticketing system in a two part process.

A.K. Manocha, the IRCTC Chairman and Managing Director, has said that the linking of Aadhaar Cards with train tickets for senior citizens is designed to streamline the reservation process. He also said that it is a push for Indian Railways to "end fraudulent bookings and curb cases of impersonation." He also stated that this process would extend to all ticket bookings in the future.

Current passengers have already received notifications of the Aadhaar Card, and have been told to submit their Aadhaar card details online at the Indian Railway Catering Tourism Corporation website, or through the reservation offices starting December 1, 2016. Effective April 1, 2017, senior citizens will need their Aadhaar Card and any original documentation for proof of identity.

When creating the Master List for new senior citizens, the Aadhaar Card and information about the passenger will need to be provided. This information includes, but is not limited to name, date of birth, and gender. After this information has been added, Senior Citizen Concession Option must be selected as yes or no, and then the ID card type with the Aadhaar number must be provided.
