Aadhaar card not received

What should I do if my Aadhaar card wasn’t received?

Every Indian citizen receives an Aadhaar number, a 12-digit unique identity number, from the UIDAI on behalf of the Indian government. The purpose of Aadhaar is to serve as a single form of identity; it is not intended to take the place of other documents like a PAN, passport, driver’s licence, etc. It is given to Indian citizens in accordance with their biometric and demographic information.

Aadhaar cards can take up to 3 months to arrive after you apply for one. Sometimes, even after the deadline has passed, you might still not get it. If your Aadhaar card hasn’t arrived at your home yet, you can order one both online and offline.You must confirm that your Aadhaar has been generated in order to do this.

How to get aadhaar online?

What would you do if you applied for an Aadhaar card and discovered via an online status query that the card was ready and sent but you haven’t received it yet? Aadhaar cards are occasionally not delivered for a variety of reasons, such as the card may not have been printed due to a backlog or technical issues, or it may have been misplaced during postal delivery. As long as the Aadhar number has been generated, you will be able to receive all the benefits offered by the Aadhar programme even if your Aadhaar card has not yet been delivered.

Your Aadhaar card can be easily obtained online via the Aadhaar website or mobile application. To make a copy of your Aadhaar card, also known as an e-Aadhaar, you must go to the UIDAI website. As a viable alternative to the Aadhaar letter, the e-Aadhaar can serve as a Proof of Identity (POI) or Proof of Residence (POR). You need to have the enrolment ID on hand in order to obtain the Aadhaar card online. The acknowledgement paper provided when documents are submitted at the Aadhaar enrolment centre contains the enrolment ID.

  • Following receipt of the enrollment ID, you can do the following actions:
  • Check out
  • Pick either “Aadhaar number” or “Enrolment Id” (depending on what is available).
  • Complete the form by providing your information and mobile number.
  • To receive an OTP (One Time Password) on your registered mobile number and email address, you must then click the “Get One Time Password” option.
  • Choose the ‘Validate and Download’ tab after providing the proper OTP.
  • Save your e-Aadhaar as a PDF file. You must make sure that Adobe Reader is installed on your computer in order to open the e-Aadhaar because it is in PDF format. The file can be printed out and used anywhere necessary. Validate its digital signature first, though. Your e-Aadhaar printout is then valid and ready for usage.

You no longer need to carry actual Aadhaar cards everywhere with you thanks to the mAadhaar app. You may quickly share your KYC and QR code with the service provider using the app as well. The app is only now accessible through the Google Play Store.

  • You need an Aadhaar number or QR code, which are both found on the Aadhaar card, to download the mAadhaar app. You can receive your Aadhaar number by SMS if you haven’t received your Aadhaar card yet. The actions listed below should be followed to receive Aadhaar information by SMS:
  • Fill out the form’s security code, the 28-digit enrollment number found on your acknowledgement sheet, and your registered mobile number.
  • Select “Send One Time Password” from the menu.
  • Click the “Submit” button after entering the OTP that you might have received on your registered cellphone number.
  • Your Aadhaar information will be sent to your cell phone through SMS after verification.
