Adhar Card Application


About Us

Aadhaar is the world’s largest biometric ID system. World Bank Chief Economist Paul Romer described Aadhaar as “the most sophisticated ID programme in the world”. Considered a proof of residence and not a proof of citizenship, Aadhaar does not itself grant any rights to domicile in India. In June 2017 the Home Ministry clarified that Aadhaar is not a valid identification document for Indians travelling to Nepal and Bhutan.

Prior to the enactment of the Act, the UIDAI functioned, since 28 January 2009, as an attached office of the Planning Commission (now NITI Aayog). On 3 March 2016 a money bill was introduced in the Parliament to give legislative backing to Aadhaar.


Aadhar Card Application Form

  • Submit the Aadhaar enrolment form along with the identity proof documents (proof of age, proof of address, proof of identity).
  • The submitted documents will be verified against the information entered in the application form, after which the individual’s biometrics will be taken.
  • The biometric process includes taking an iris scan and all ten fingerprints. This is not done for applicants below the age of 5 years.
  • An acknowledgement slip will then be generated which will contain the applicant’s Aadhaar enrolment ID.
  • The applicant will receive their Aadhaar card by post at the address mentioned on the application form.

Check Aadhaar Enrolment Status

After the procedures at the enrolment centre, applicants will receive an enrolment ID which can be used to check the status of Aadhaar. To check the status, one can follow these steps:

  • Step 1. Go to the official website UIDAI
  • Step 2. Click ‘Check Aadhaar status’ and enter the enrolment number
  • Step 3. The applicants have to submit a security code.
  • Step 4. Click the ‘check status’ button.
  • Step 5. The status of the applicant’s Aadhaar card will be shown on the screen.

In case, the applicant has not received his/her Aadhaar card via mail which takes up to 90 days; the UIDAI provides online service to download and print the soft copy of Aadhaar card which is accepted everywhere.

Get the e-Aadhaar Letter

Once the documents and biometric data has been submitted you will have to wait for some time before your Aadhar card arrives. It can take up to 90 days, 3 months, for the Aadhar card to be sent to you. The card will be sent to you via Indian Post and can, at times, take a bit longer to reach owing to the volume of the number of people enrolling for Aadhar.

However if you are in a hurry then you can download a copy of the Aadhar card known as the e-Aadhaar. To get the e-Aadhaar you can follow these steps:

  • Go to the UIDAI website.
