Aadhaar Authentication for GST Registration
What is Aadhaar Authentication?
The process of submitting the ‘Aadhaar number’ along with other biometric details of the Aadhaar holder to the Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR) for verifying its correctness is known as Aadhar authentication. The CIDR verifies the correctness of details on the basis of information available with it.
This process is an attempt to create an online platform to validate the identity of Aadhaar holders easily from anywhere with an intention to reduce frauds.
Aadhaar Authentication / e-KYC for Existing Taxpayers
All taxpayers registered as Regular Taxpayers (including Casual Taxable persons, SEZ Units/Developers), ISD, and Composition taxpayers can do their Aadhaar Authentication for GST registration or e-KYC on GST Portal.
