How to download Aadhar card online?


Aadhaar is a unique identification no. which is issued by the Indian government to every citizen. Aadhar is a 12 digit number that is issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). If any citizen of India wants to make his Aadhaar card, then he has to visit the Aadhaar Enrollment Center where he has to show his date of birth proof along with any identity which is proof of his being an Indian citizen.

Your address, date of birth, photograph, and biometric are available on the Aadhaar card, which you can use as address proof. There is also a virtual or electronic form of Aadhar card, which we call e-Aadhaar, on which all the information of the citizen is available. You can also download e-Aadhaar online or there are many such government-approved applications in which e-Aadhaar is automatically downloaded on entering your Aadhar card no. One special thing you should keep in mind while enrolling in Aadhar is that you must register your mobile no so that you do not face any problem in downloading e-Aadhaar.
