State Specific ID

If you have registered for an E Sharm card or are willing to do so, you must have heard about State Specific ID. But many people still need to be fully aware of the term State Specific ID, or they need clarification. 

Although this is an optional field, it is still important to know because it can be used in many ways in the coming days.

So in this article, I will explain in detail about State specific ID, whether it is necessary to have a State Specific ID while making an E Sharam card, and where we will get it. So let’s first know what State specific ID is.

State Specific ID: As the name suggests, it is a special ID given by the state government to its resident. This Id is proof that you’ve resided in the State for more than 10 years and are a permanent resident of the State.

Some state governments have already issued State Specific ID. For example, the Haryana government has issued family ID for its resident, and the rest of the state governments will also issue State specific ID to their citizens soon.

The State specific ID may differ in different states, but their purpose is the same.
