Aadhaar card has become the most important thing for Indians, but just after the latest supreme court judgment, Aadhar card is not mandatory for getting Sim Cards, bank accounts, and many other similar services.
however, you need PAN no for opening a bank account and for ITR filing you need both Aadhar and Pan card, but Govt of India made it mandatory for all the govt and private services, which created a lot of buzz and people were worried about their privacy and security.
Most of us linked our Aadhar number with our Bank account, mobile numbers and Paytm or other digital wallets because we didn’t’ wanted any kind of disruption due to Aadhar, but at the same time, we were worried about the privacy and security.
So many times we have seen that Aadhar database got compromised and its very easy for a hacker to access all the digital information of Aadhar user by just using the Aadhar number.
