It serves as the best identity proof for most of the forms because of sensitive identity data collected like the finger print, the image of the person and their eyes. Now even the government has made it mandatory for everyone to link their Aadhaar card with their PAN card if they plan to file their income tax. This unique 12-digit government identification number is issued by Unique Identification Authority of India on behalf of the Indian government.
