Aadhaar Card Download - Steps to Download And Print e-Aadhaar Online

 

 

The Aadhaar is a 12-digit number which was introduced in April 2010, with the main objective of providing a universal identity to every resident of India. This number is unique and is based on the demographic and biometric data of the individual. The data is collected, stored, processed, and governed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). The Aadhaar helps in quick and safe validation of the identity of the individuals. The Aadhaar online portal makes service delivery more effective and economical. The direct benefit of this is the smooth flow of the Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) schemes, such as unemployment benefit, LPG subsidy, National Pension Scheme and so on.

How to Take e-Aadhaar Card Print after Download

The downloaded Aadhaar requires a password to be created. The password is an 8 digit alpha-numeric safety measure designed to avoid misuse of Aadhaar by unauthorized persons. The password consists of the first four letters of the individual’s name, in capital letters, and the year of birth in the format yyyy.

For example, a person with the name Vijay Kumar, and born on 08th February 1986, must enter the following password: VIJA1986.

Once opened, a printout of the Aadhaar can be taken and kept as a hard copy.
