DigiLocker or digital locker provides access to authentic virtual documents. It is a digital document wallet where you can store your documents such as driving licence, PAN card, Voter ID, policy documents, etc. You can upload the documents and keep these safe when you sign up for a DigiLocker account. You get a dedicated cloud storage space that is linked to your Aadhaar number.
We at Infinity Finserv (P) Ltd continuously train and educate our investors to download the app 'DIGILOCKER' and store all your important documents there.
When you download the DIGILOCKER, you can see some of the pre-loaded documents like- Adhaar, PAN etc. The digital locker helps eliminate use of physical documents and enables sharing of e-documents across government agencies via a mechanism to verify the “authenticity" of the documents online.
DigiLocker is an initiative of the Ministry of Electronics & IT (MeitY) under Digital India Corporation (DIC).
