Importance of AADHAR-Based Smartcard System’s Implementation in Developing Countries

  • Kamta Nath Mishra
Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 730)


A smartcard includes fingerprints, iris, face, and palatal patterns where DNA sequence and palatal patterns of the smartcard will be used for identifying a dead person but fingerprints, iris, and face will be used identity verification of a living person. The smartcards are now widely being used as one of the most useful and reliable form of electronic identity verification system. By embedding biometrics in the host, we can formulate a reliable individual identification system as the biometrics possesses. Hence, the conflicts and problems related to the intellectual property rights protection can be potentially prevented. Consequently, it has been decided by governmental institutions in Europe and the U.S. to include digital biometric data in future ID documents. In India, biometric-based unique identification (UID) scheme called AADHAR is being implemented with the objective to issue a unique identification number to all the citizens of the country. This AADHAR number can be used in executing all the money transactions-related activities including all types of purchases, sales, money transfer, hotel bills, hospital expenses, and air tickets, etc. Therefore, the AADHAR-based smartcard system will help the South Asian countries for removing corruption and improving their economies.
