Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 1 will launch a ‘digital locker’ facility that will help citizens to digitally store their important documents like PAN card, passport, mark sheets and degree certificates.
“Digital Locker will provide secure access to government-issued documents. It uses authenticity services provided by Aadhaar,” an official release said on Monday.
It is aimed at eliminating the use of physical documents and enables sharing of verified electronic documents across government agencies.
Digital Locker provides a dedicated personal storage space in the cloud to citizens, linked to citizen’s Aadhaar number.
