Objective: Indian Government attempted to empower residents of India with a unique identity and a digital platform to establish their identity anytime and at any place by providing aadhaar card. The objective of this study is to find out whether this identity can be forged or not. Materials and Methodology: Photocopies of the samples of both printed and posted cards were taken. Various measurements of various parameters were done using scales. Results: When the results of all the samples were compared, it was observed that variations were present in between the cards printed by oneself and posted through the authority. Variations in dimension of photographs, lengths of bar code, dimensions of card etc. were observed. Conclusion: From the present study it can be concluded that no strict pattern or guidelines are followed while printing aadhaar cards of the individuals and it is suggested that the authorities should make standards so that these cannot be easily forged. It is suggested to install aadhaar card reader devices wherever aadhar card is asked as an identity proof.
