Indian citizens who sign up for a DigiLocker account get a dedicated cloud 62 storage space that is linked to their Aadhaar (UIDAI) number. Organizations that are registered with Digital Locker can push electronic copies of documents and certificates (e.g. driving license, Voter ID, School certificates) directly into citizens lockers. Citizens can also upload scanned copies of their legacy documents in their accounts. These legacy documents can be electronically signed using the eSign facility. The benefits of DigiLocker includes the following: 1. Candidates can access their documents, such as, Confirmation page of the online Application Form, Admit Card, OMR Answer Sheet, Score Card etc. anytime and anywhere from their respective DigiLocker. This is convenient and time saving. 2. In case a Candidate forgets his User ID or Password to access required information / data from NEET (UG) Portal, he/ she can easily retrieve his/ her Application No. / Registered Mobile No. from his / her DigiLocker account and access the portal. 3. DigiLocker makes it easier for the Candidates to validate the authenticity of their documents as they are issued directly by the registered issuers. 4.
