The cards contain the cardholder's medical details and other information on a biometrics database

India wants to bring their senior citizens into the digital age by assigning all of them their own Aadhaar-based smart health cards as a part of their annual budget discussion for the year. These cards contain the cardholder's medical details and other information on a biometrics database.

Cardholders will simply use facial, retina or fingerprint scanners to identify themselves and can send money as rapidly as sending a text message, making trips to the bank obsolete. This will subsequently decrease paper waste from financial exchanges throughout the country.
