Now it will become necessary

If you don’t have an Aadhaar card and want to take advantage of government schemes, you can apply for Aadhaar and avail the scheme through this application form.

UIDAI has said that people who have Aadhaar can use VID in place of their Aadhaar number. It can also be used for e-KYC. Virtual ID for this.
Certificate is also necessary

Aadhaar number will be required to generate certificate of eligibility or eligibility of the beneficiary of various schemes. If the beneficiary wants to avail any government scheme and for that his Aadhaar number will have to generate his Eligibility Certificate.
