How to Apply for Aadhaar Card ?


Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identification number issued by the Indian government to every individual resident of India. Any person can choose to apply for Aadhaar. Similarly, agencies providing benefits and services may choose to use Aadhaar in their systems and may require that their beneficiaries or customers provide their Aadhaar for these services. In order to apply for a new Aadhar letter, one have to physically go to the Aadhaar card enrollment center with/without an appointment. Online appointment for Aadhaar card Enrollment has been started on a trial basis at selected Enrollment Centers.

Please carry all the documents mentioned above with original.
