There will be only one smart card for each and every individual. The sample smart card looks like:
All individual and group accounts (business, corporates) of various departments need to link with Aadhar card. (The process is already going on). Some of them are: Pan Card, Passport, Voter IDs, PF Account, LIC Account, Health Cards, Vehicles registered, Properties registered, Bank Accounts, University/Boards mark sheets, TIN, TAN, DIN etc etc.
Grouping Family Members: Suppose there are seven people in a family. All Seven aadhar numbers need to be grouped under one family. One will be head of family (Senior member). Transferring member/s from one group to another or new group is possible (After marriage or after division of family etc).
Pan Card: IT Dept. need to link all pan cards with Aadhar cards (This process is already going on). After linking all accounts, they can stop pan card campaign. There will be no word called pan card. New people no need to go for pan card. Aadhar registration is enough. Pervious alphanumeric pan card numbers (ex. BGABC1558C) will be replaced by 12 digit Aadhar card number (ex. 1234-5678-1234). IT dept. needs to change in their system. While filling IT returns, people will login to their account using user name (national portal user name) and password.
Passport: If I am currently holding passport, I will link my passport and Aadhar card. I can use my current passport until I get UIDAI’s smart card. After some days (say after 2-3 months) I will get my smart card. After getting smart card, I will destroy my passport. In smart card I will not be having passport number, my Aadhar card number (i.e UIDAI’s smart card number) is my passport number. In my smart card, it will be printed as: Passport: YES.
If I am not holding passport, then I will apply for the passport. Regular procedure (Apply, Take Appointment, Visit, Police Verification) need to be followed. After successful completion of all steps, passport will be issued to me. Here, I will get UIDAI’s smart card. There I can see, Passport: YES. Option 2: Passport: N2834397 (24/05/2023)
PF Account: Link all UANs with Aadhar card (This process is already going on). You need to change account numbers to Aadhar card numbers. New people will be given their Aadhar card numbers as UAN. Employees will login to PF account using user name (national portal user name) and password. Employers will login to PF account using user name (corporate portal user name) and password.
Banks: KYC is already going on.
