What is DigiLocker App
About DigiLocker :
Targeted at the idea of paperless governance, DigiLocker is a platform for issuance and verification of documents & certificates in a digital way, thus eliminating the use of physical documents. Indian citizens who sign up for a DigiLocker account get a dedicated cloud storage space that is linked to their Aadhaar (UIDAI) number. Organizations that are registered with Digital Locker can push electronic copies of documents and certificates (e.g. driving license, Voter ID, School certificates) directly into citizens lockers. Citizens can also upload scanned copies of their legacy documents in their accounts. These legacy documents can be electronically signed using the eSign facility.
The platform has the following benefits:
Citizens can access their digital documents anytime, anywhere and share it online. This is convenient and time saving.
It reduces the administrative overhead of Government departments by minimizing the use of paper.
Digital Locker makes it easier to validate the authenticity of documents as they are issued directly by the registered issuers.
Self-uploaded documents can be digitally signed using the eSign facility (which is similar to the process of self-attestation).
