However the journey of Aadhaar was started on February 7, 2012 when UIDAI launched an online verification system for Aadhaar numbers. The system enables banks, telecom companies and all governmental departments to verify if a person is a resident of India or not just by entering a unique identification number. After that, on November 26, 2012 Prime Minister Manmohan Singh launched a direct Aadhaar-linked benefit transfer scheme by directly transferring money to the residents' bank account.
