Carrying important documents like Aadhaar cards, driving licenses, PAN cards and others daily in your wallets can be tricky. There is always a threat of you misplacing, losing, or spoiling it. DigiLocker is your one solution for all document-handling woes.
Launched in 2015, the application has a file size of about 56.5MB for android and 68.2MB for iOS devices. All you need is an Aadhaar number to operate DigiLocker. From school and college mark sheets, to passports, ID Proofs, and more, you can save the digital copies of all your important documents in DigiLocker.
Last month, on August 29, the ministry rolled out a new feature on the app. Following which, people can now add nominees for their accounts. “DigiLocker users can now add their nominee for their respective accounts in quick easy steps. Take a look,” the ministry tweeted.
