Wondering How Aadhaar Card Download Can Be Done? Here’s A Step-by-Step Guide

Updated on 15 March, 2019 at 12:50 pm By

Aadhaar Card download through the internet is likely to be on many minds. With the ‘Digital India‘ slogans being put into popular use, Aadhar Card download has become easier. All Indian citizens are assigned a 12-digit unique number called the UID (unique identification number) termed as “Aadhaar” by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India). Under this, the UID provided to each resident and citizen of India is linked to his/her basic demographic and biometric information such as a photograph, ten fingerprints, and iris scans. This data is stored in a centralized database by the government.

The Supreme Court, in a recent verdict, has made it mandatory for everyone to link Aadhaar Card with PAN when providing ITR details and in order to avail government subsidies. The Cabinet has also approved the amendments where Aadhaar can be used voluntarily by banks and telecom companies to authenticate new customers.

 

 

So, how to download Aadhar Card? Here is a step-by-step guide:-

 

Step 1: Go to UIDAI website

 

Step 2: Click ‘Download Aadhaar’

 

Step 3: Enter the 28 digit enrollment ID/12-digit Aadhaar number/16 digit Virtual ID



 

Step 4: Fill details as asked

 

Step 5: Click ‘Request OTP’ or choose the box which says “Yes, I have TOTP. DO no send me OTP”

TOTP can be generated by downloading the mAadhaar app.

 

Step 6: Enter OTP and click ‘Download Aadhaar’

 

Step 7: Open the file

The file thus downloaded is password protected. Its password will be the first four letters of your name which you will have to enter in capital letters and your year of birth. For example, if your name is Mahesh and you were born in the year 1978, then your password will be MAHE1978.
