How to apply for Aadhar Card

ONLINE

  • Find an Aadhar enrolment centre near you
  • Book an appointment online.
  • On the day of the appointment you need to ensure that you are present well in advance of the time appointed so that there is no possibility of missing it. Once you are at the centre here are the things you will be expected to do:
  • Fill out the enrolment form. You can fill up the form before you go for the appointment too since it is available online.
  • Submit the form along with the supporting documents.
  • The supporting documents will include a proof of identity and a proof of address.
  • Once the documents are submitted and they are accepted, you will have to submit biometric data too. This will include an impression of your fingerprints and your iris.
  • They will also take a photograph of you for the records.
  • Once all the details are collected, make sure you don’t leave without taking the acknowledgement slip of your enrolment. This will have your 14-digit enrolment number on it, which will help you keep a check on the status of your application.

OFFLINE

1.  If you cannot/do not want to book an appointment online, you can also directly visit the centre. However, the appointment will save you a lot of time and effort.

2. Once you reach the Aadhaar enrolment centre, follow the same steps as given above

  • Fill out the enrolment form. You can fill up the form before you go for the appointment too since it is available online.
  • Submit the form along with the supporting documents.
  • The supporting documents will include a proof of identity and a proof of address.
  • Once the documents are submitted and they are accepted, you will have to submit biometric data too. This will include an impression of your fingerprints and your iris.
  • They will also take a photograph of you for the records.
  • Once all the details are collected, make sure you don’t leave without taking the acknowledgement slip of your enrolment. This will have your 14-digit enrolment number on it, which will help you keep a check on the status of your application.

How to check Aadhaar Enrolment Status

  • To check the status you have the option to go to the UIDAI website  and use the enrolment number to see if you have been allotted an Aadhar number or not.
  • To check your Aadhaar Status through your mobile phone, you will need to type out the following SMS or text message "UID STATUS <14 digit enrolment number>". E.g. UID STATUS 12345678912345. Send the SMS to 51969.
  • In the event your Aadhaar Card has already been issued, then a text message will be sent to you displaying your Aadhaar Card number. If the Aadhaar Card has not yet been generated then a text message will be sent to you displaying the present status of the card.
  • You may also check status of delivery of your Aadhar Card by presenting your 14 digit enrolment number at your local Post Office.

How to get your Aadhaar Card

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 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, by filling the online form available.

How to seed Aadhaar card with bank account

This is a simple process which can be done by submitting your details by going to your bank, an ATM of your bank or online, by logging into the internet banking service of your bank.
