What is an e-Aadhar Card?

  2. Valid Identity and Address Proof

    An e-Aadhar card is equivalent to your physical Aadhar card and acts as a valid proof of identity and address as it contains the necessary information and is authorized by the UIDAI. According to the Section 4(3) of Aadhar act, “An Aadhar number in electronic form may be accepted as proof of identity of the Aadhar holder subject to authentication.”

  3. Streamline Documentation Process

Since, it acts as a valid proof of identity, having an e-Aadhar card reduces the need to fill out KYC forms saving time and effort.

    Choosing that perfect bridal lehenga for your big day can be confusing. As a bride, you may want to pick the best dress to stand out. You have to choose the one with the best colours, design, and style. Designer bridal lehengas are the bestselling products in the market right now, and to choose the perfect one for your wedding ceremony you need to know a few things no one will tell you. Let’s take a look at a few of them while choosing your bridal lehenga -   Matching Lehenga with the Jewellery – Most brides first buy their lehenga, then choose the jewellery to go with it. However, this should go the opposite way around. Jewellery is a long term investment; you probably will wear it a lot more than your lehenga. Also, in most Indian households it gets handed over to the next generation ladies. Also, picking the jewellery before picking Designer Bridal Lehengas gives you the opportunity to match that neckline with the necklace’s shape perfectly. Relation of Motifs and Fit – It is best to choose a lehenga with minute, delicate patterns if you are on the heavier size. Beautiful and delicate embroidery looks amazing if it is spread across the entire length of the dress. It also compliments that extra layer of clothing beautifully. Similarly, the best wedding dresses for skinny brides can be something with bold, big embroidery patterns. It accentuates your size by bringing the attention to the dress itself. Skirt, Blouse and Dupatta – Most would-be brides make a mistake while choosing their lehengas - they pick the skirt first, then order the blouse and dupatta. However, both these are equally, if not more, important for achieving that perfect look. Think about a realistic scenario, while interacting with a guest, the bride and the person will be at face height, from where the skirt will be impossible to notice. Also, most of the time a bridal photographer will take a picture from the waist up, hence paying attention to the blouse and dupatta will give you that show stopper look. Details on the Dupatta - Another key thing to look out for is the inner fabric of the dupatta border. Whenever you wear your designer lehengas, this part will be very near to your face. If the colour of the dupatta is darker, it will make your face look dull in the pictures. So, instead of choosing colours like a hue of purple, or deep blue, try picking a lighter colour like yellow, or some lighter variation of pink. Such colours will reflect light much better, making your face brighter instantly. Design – Every bridal’s lehenga emphasises on design work along with the material. Intricate zardozi is becoming a market hit. It is famous for its regal feel, and especially when it comes in a golden colour; making the bride a glam queen on her special day. You can also go for Zari, Gota Patti, etc. if you want to look a class apart. Budget – It is a universal truth that quality doesn't come cheap. Designer bridal lehengas will always be a lot costlier than a store-bought one. However, with NBFC Personal Loan for wedding you will not have to worry about the cost of looking pretty on your special day ever again. With Personal Loans up to Rs.25 lakh and disbursal within 24 hours of approval, you don’t have to let money become a restriction in your dream wedding. You can also check out your pre-approved offer which helps you save more time.
