What is E-Aadhaar?

Aadhaar Card is a 12-digit unique identity number that can be obtained by the residents of India. E-Aadhaar is the electronic version of Aadhaar Card of any individual, which is as valid as the physical copy. The E-Aadhaar is also a verifiable 12-digit unique identification number that's issued by UIDAI. Just like the Aadhaar card, E-Aadhaar preserves the individual's biometric details, picture, Aadhaar number, and demographic details such as name, date of birth, and gender.

Like Aadhaar, the E-Aadhaar can also be used as proof of identity and proof of address for an individual during legal matters. When the enrolment completes, the person can easily download its E-Aadhaar from the official website of UIDAI by entering either the Aadhaar number or the Enrolment ID. You can visit  https://resident.uidai.gov.in/check-aadhaar for checking your Aadhaar.

Under the jurisdiction of India's Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Aadhaar's data is collected by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India). 

The individual can visit the following website to download the Aadhaar using their unique identification number:
