Jan Aadhaar Yojana was envisaged and announced in modified budget 2019-20 by Hon’ble Chief Minister of Rajasthan with an objective of “One Number, One Card, One Identity” for the residents of the state.
Rajasthan, being the largest geographical state of the country, has its own specific challenges in delivering government services to the residents living in far flung areas; hence needed a robust electronic mode of service delivery to do away with the snarls of physical delivery so that the benefits of the public welfare can be delivered at the door-step to residents in a transparent and leakage-proof manner. Jan Aadhaar Yojana fulfils this objective and unifies the entire service delivery ecosystem of the state with a single-card, single-number, single-identity philosophy by reducing multiple channels of government to reach to the residents to only one.
The Jan Aadhaar number aims to be the single identifier of a family and also an individual. It is the sole vehicle on which delivery of all kinds of cash as well non-cash benefits and services are riding and reaching to the door-step of the residents through an intertwined network of e-Mitra kiosks.
