Appointment For Aadhaar Enrolment

Every Indian citizen receives an Aadhaar number, a 12-digit unique identity number, from the UIDAI on behalf of the Indian government. It serves as a single form of identification and logs a person’s personal data in a government database. It is not intended to replace other documents like a PAN, passport, driver’s licence, etc.
