UIDAI update: Download your Aadhaar card online by following these simple steps!


The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), which deals with matters related to Aadhaar, also allows Aadhaar card holders to download the digital version of the Aadhaar card online. Like the physical copy of the Aadhaar, the digitally signed and password-protected electronic copy of the Aadhaar is equally valid.

Digital Aadhaar also serves as a valid proof of identity and address for various purposes.


To access Digital Aadhaar, one has to visit the official website of UIDAI - www.uidai.gov.in or www.eaadhaar.uidai.gov.in.

Here is the step-by-step process to download an aadhaar card online in simple steps.

Step 1: Visit the official website of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) - www.uidai.gov.in.

Step 2: On the homepage, click on the "Download Aadhaar" option under the "My Aadhaar" tab.

Step 3: Now a new page will open. Here, enter your Aadhaar number or Enrollment ID (EID).


Step 4: Enter your full name, pin code, and image captcha.

Step 5: Click on "Get One Time Password" (OTP) and you will receive an OTP on your registered mobile number.

Step 6: Enter the OTP and click on the "Download Aadhaar" button.

Step 7: Your Aadhaar card will be downloaded as a PDF file.

To open the PDF file, you need to enter the password which is a combination of the first four letters of your name in capital letters and your year of birth (YYYY) as shown on your Aadhaar card.
