Why One Need To Download Aadhaar Card

Awfully, aadhar is somewhat — “Mera Aadhaar, Meri Pehchaan”…!!!

Not only that but it is also a 12-digit unique identification number that is issued by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) to all the citizens of India.

Fine, but what if data filed within the aadhaar card gets wrong. Don’t you think all the details will be in vain? Chances are, but details aren’t the fumes which will disappear within seconds.

Hmm… cool fact. So what’s the way to overcome this issue.

In order to rescue and refine all the details of aadhaar card, aadhaar card amendment (aadhaar card updation || aadhaar card correction) is required.

Wait-Wait-Wait, at this point, one suffers from the aadhar card download need. Have a depth view from starting…

Generally, after enrolling and receiving the aadhaar card, we get the filled details incorrect and sometimes it even happens that we lose the aadhaar card.

To this point, we look for the aadhaar card updation or so-called aadhar card amendment. Upon making the updation, we just have to wait for the new aadhaar card. And the reason beyond waiting is: new aadhar card needs to be mailed by the government of India on your postal address. Needless to mention that this on-going process usually takes a couple of weeks and sometimes a month or two to be completed.

Until what? Nothing big, just download a digital copy of your new aadhaar card online, which we call e-aadhaar from the self-service portal of the UIDAI or the Enrolment/Update Center.

Time and again, you might be glancing at e-aadhaar and often might be thinking; what is e-aadhaar? Well, it is nothing but an electronic version of your aadhaar card or just say it a copy of your aadhaar but remember electronic and not the original which come by post.

Not only that but you also have your number registered with UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India).

So, under this alternative step – what you need to do is visit the official website of UIDAI.

It will look somewhat like this…

welcome to uidai

By reaching this screen, just scroll your cursor (take you mouse pointer) to the “My Aadhaar” button. Following this will open a drop-down menu list.

Have a look at the list and upcoming screen via the GIF, as follows…

  • Retrieve Lost or Forgotten EID/UID
  • Order Aadhaar Reprint
  • Check Aadhaar Reprint Status

  • Aadhaar Number ->
  • Enrolment ID (EID)

From these points, select the “Aadhaar Number” option. Though itself selected option is also aadhaar number, but just confirm it for once whether the selected option is aadhaar number or not.

Upon confirming, fill the 12 digit UID (Unique Identity – like 1234/1234/1234) or so-called your aadhaar number.

It seems to be confusing, right? Ok, let me make it easy for you: have a look at the GIF representation…

Select Aadhaar Number & Fill 12 Digit UID

Mark or Not “Masked Aadhaar” Option But Enter The Captcha

Mark or Not “Masked Aadhaar” Option But Enter The Captcha

Yes, upon filling your aadhaar number (12 digit UID) you have been asked to mark an option, named “I want a masked Aadhaar”.

Well, it is not mandatory to select this option. But selecting this will enable you to download your aadhaar card with only the last four (4) digits being visible.

On the other hand, if you don’t select this option then you will be allotted with a regular aadhaar card (a formal aadhaar card with all 12 digits being visible).

What next? Next is to fill the captcha which is provided just aside of the blank space to fill with.

Upon filing the captcha, hit (press) either option “Send OTP” or “Enter a TOTP” OR “Face Auth”. Wherein, if you hit the “Send OTP” option then you will receive a six (6) digit code on your registered mobile number.

Note – 01: Remember that the OTP (OPT full form is — One-Time Temporary Password) will be valid for 10 mins only/-

Whereas, if you hit the “Enter the TOPT” option then you will receive an 8 digit long numeric string on your same registered mobile number.

Note – 02: Remember that the TOTP (TOPT full form is — Time-based One-Time Temporary Password) will be valid for 30 seconds only/-

And if you hit the last one i.e “Face Auth” (option to come soon) then you will be asked to ensure the following conditions…

  • Firstly ensure you are in the correct lighting.
  • To second — stay still for the smooth capture of your face.
  • To third — allow the browser to use your device’s camera.
  • Click ‘OK’ to continue.

It’s just too much work. So, avoid these all options and select the “Send OTP” option.

Note – 03: Remember that the Face Auth (Face Auth full form is — Face Authentication) will be placed only if found to be following the above-mentioned points.

Finally, in order to view the complete process of doing the same, visit the GIF attached-above with the step 3rd (third).

Enter OPT & Select Verify And Download Aadhaar

Enter OPT & Select Verify And Download Aadhaar

So, no matter what you press, just enter what you received and scroll down to look for the “Verify And Download Aadhaar” option.

However, in the way of scrolling, you will be asked to take a quick survey.

Mark: The survey part is mandatory and till the UIDAI creates your e-Aadhaar, they request you to take this short survey so that they can improve their services.

Not only this, they assure you that they will keep all your information confidential.

The survey part asks you to deal with only two (2) questions, where the first question contains two options and the second contains five (5) options, mentioned as follows…

Q -01: Did you know that you can order a reprint of your aadhaar letter from the UIDAI website?

  • Yes ->
  • No

To this, the answer is Yes. Of course, one can order a reprint of his/her aadhaar letter from the UIDAI website.

Now, let’s jump over to the next question, as follows…

Q – 02: In how many days did you receive the reprinted aadhaar letter after getting SMS from India post?

  • Within 5 working days ->
  • 6-10 days
  • 11-15 days
  • More than 15 days
  • Did not receive

To this, the answer is – “Within 5 working days”. Yes, within 5 working days one can receive his/her reprinted e-aadhaar letter after getting SMS from India post.

All right.

What next? Next, later to survey, you have to look for the option “Verify And Download Aadhaar”.

However, to this I will say — the time you find it, click it.

Have a look here…

Enter OPT And Select Verify And Download Aadhaar

Doing so will immediately send you a message to the registered mobile number like –

How To Download Aadhaar Card With Mobile Number: Online Format

These days, in order to enjoy certain government welfare facilities – one is required to have the “Aadhaar”.

Well said — aadhaar is somewhat: “Mera Aadhaar, Meri Pehchaan”.

Not only that but this document also acts as a proof of address and identity as well for an individual.

Also, he can download it by using the enrolment number, virtual ID, aadhaar number, mobile applications, and the name + DOB or email address. Just depending on the condition to which it falls and upon the ID s/he haves.

How To Download Aadhaar Card With Mobile Number

Remember: To be able to go with the process of aadhaar card download online by name and mobile number, you must have your mobile number or email address registered with the UIDAI at the time of enrolment and also any of the ID with you.

ID’s be like – Enrolment ID (EID) or Virtual ID (VID) or Aadhaar Number (UID).

All right! But what if one doesn’t have any of the ID. Not a big deal, you can create (generate) one.

Before jumping into the ID’s creating field, let’s know a well-known fact…

Fact — If you don’t have the UID (Aadhaar Number) then you can’t create the VID (Virtual ID). Somewhat VID is completely dependent on UID.

Hence, if you don’t have the VID then immediately start creating or generating the UID (Unique ID/Aadhaar Number) or EID (Enrolment ID).

The formula to create (generate) UID/EID is just a step away, here – Aadhaar Card Download By Name And Date Of Birth… You will find it by making a few scrolls down by reaching this guide.

But if you have the VID and not the EID/UID then instantly you can start downloading your aadhaar by visiting this section — Aadhaar Card Download BY Virtual ID (VID).

Also, if you have EID or UID and not the VID then also you can start downloading your aadhaar card by simply visiting either section…

Time and again, the steps to execute aadhaar card download by mobile number and name is as follows:

  • Create Either – VID || UID || EID
