What is DigiLocker?

What is DigiLocker?

DigiLocker, a revolutionary initiative under the Digital India Program, provides an account in the cloud to every Aadhaar holder to access authentic documents/certificates such as driving license, vehicle registration, and academic mark sheet in digital format from the original issuers of these certificates. It also provides 1GB of storage space to each account to upload scanned copies of legacy documents.

All the documents can be authenticated by the users, legally on a par with originals, and are accepted by the government of India as a substitute for the original one if required to produce one.

These documents are issued directly by the registered issuers such as Income Tax Department, CBSE, Registrar Office, etc.

The model has been reinventing itself with a new Digilocker flow - Meri Pehchaan.

The new and improved SSO DigiLocker Suite of APIs enables you to easily create a dynamic DigiLocker session that is optimized to reduce user drop-offs.

With powers ranging from choosing your sign-in methods to downloading the list of self-uploaded documents to linking documents, this enhanced model has convenience dictating its entire user journey.
