What is Aadhaar?

Aadhaar is a 12-digit individual identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India on behalf of the Government of India.

This number will serve as a proof of identity and address, anywhere in India.

Any individual, irrespective of age and gender, who is a resident in India and satisfies the verification process laid down by the UIDAI, can enroll for Aadhaar.

Each individual needs to enroll only once, which is free of cost.

Each Aadhaar number will be unique to an individual and will remain valid for life.

Aadhaar number will help you provide access to services like banking, mobile phone connections, and other Govt and Non-Govt services in due course.

UIDAI process accepts 18 PoI (Proof of Identity) and 33 PoA (Proof of Address) documents.
Once you download the form, it mentions all the names of documents, which are accepted.

List of documents required
Common proofs of identity and address are election photo ID card, Ration card, passport and driving license.

Photo ID cards like PAN card and Govt ID cards are permissible for identity proof. 

Address proof documents also include water – electricity – telephone bills from the last three months.

In case you do not have above common proofs, Certificate of Identify having photo issued by Gazetted Officer/Tehsildar on letterhead is also accepted as PoI. Certificate of Address having photo issued by MP or MLA /Gazetted Officer/Tehsildar on letterhead or by Village Panchayat head or its equivalent authority (for rural areas) is accepted as valid PoA.

Even if someone in a family does not have individual valid documents, the resident can still enroll if his/her name exists in family entitlement document. In this case the Head of Family in entitlement document needs to be enrolled first with valid PoI & PoA document.

The head of the household can then introduce other members in the family while they are enrolling. UIDAI accepts eight document types as Proof of Relationship.

Where there are no documents available, resident may also take the help of Introducers available at the enrolment center.

The Introducers are notified by the Registrar. For further details please contact office of the concerned Registrar.

At the enrollment center,

please fill your personal details within the form.

Your photo, fingerprints and iris scan will also be taken as a part of the enrollment.

You can review the details you have provided and make corrections during enrolment itself.

You will get an acknowledgment slip with an temporary enrolment number and other details captured during enrolment

You need to enroll only once.

Enrolling again is a waste of your time as you will get only one Aadhaar number.

Based on your information provided, your details will be verified centrally.

If your application is successful, an Aadhaar number will be generated and mailed to your address.

The waiting time for Aadhaar may vary from 60-90 days after receipt of resident data packets in CIDR.

 However, it could take even longer in case enrolment is done through NPR exercise.

After enrolment, quality checks are done by the enrolment center supervisors, followed by correction process (where required) and data packet consolidation.

Subsequently, the Enrolment Agency sends the data to UIDAI data center.

The data undergoes various stages of screening and validations in CIDR.

This ensures that the source of data is authenticated besides ensuring that no duplicate exists.
Sample Quality checks are done on demographic and biometric data collected from residents.
Apart from that the Operator/Supervisor/Introducer/Enrolment Agency and Registrar information in each packet is also validated.
Only after passing the data quality checks and other validations, the packet goes for de-duplication and Aadhaar gets generated.

In case of any errors, the packet goes on hold.
For example if the particulars of the Operator who enrolled the resident are found to be inconsistent with database or there is a mismatch observed in photo and age/gender (ex. a child's photo with age mentioned as 50 yrs), then the packet is held for further enquiry.

Corrective actions are taken on such packets, wherever possible, else a rejection letter-guiding resident to re-enroll is dispatched to the resident. India Post is entrusted with the responsibility of printing and delivery of Aadhaar letters.

Depending on backlog for generation, location of delivery etc. India Post may ordinarily take 3-5 weeks to print and deliver Aadhaar letters to the residents.

In the case of Aadhaar enrolments through NPR exercise, the method of verification is the RGI approved LRUR (Local Register of Usual Residents) verification process.

The Aadhaar number will be issued only after completion of the LRUR process, which could take much longer than the time prescribed above.

Residents can verify the name of their Registrar at the enrolment centers or on the acknowledgement provided to them at the time of enrolment.

In case it is Registrar General of India (RGI), please contact office of RGI for further details.

This Aadhar card is not accepted anywhere as proof of address. I don't know why? Maybe in future they will.

I would like to apply for Aadhar card but I don't have any address proof. I don't know what to do.

Hey SM, I downloaded the form but when I searched for where to submit it, the page in the link takes me to Aadhaar site. But guess what, there is no option for selecting Tamil Nadu as an option!! Is this Aadhar card restricted only to states mentioned there?
