digit Enrolment Id with Date time stamp which is printed on your
Acknowledgement slip

Check your Status 

submit your Aadhaar enrolment form to an official at an Aadhaar enrolment camp, it takes a few weeks to a few months for Aadhaar enrolment processing. Your Aadhaar enrolment goes through several stages of processing before your Aadhaar card is delivered at your door step. Shown below are the nine stages.

Stage Description
1 Aadhaar enrolment done
2 Enrolment packet uploaded to UIDAI by enrolling agency
3 Enrolment processing started by UIDAI
4 Enrolment processing completed by UIDAI
5 Electronic Aadhaar letter generated by UIDAI
6 Electronic Aadhaar letter sent by UIDAI to India Post
7 Electronic Aadhaar letter received by India Post
8 Printed Aadhaar letter dispatched from India Post to resident
9 Printed Aadhaar delivered to resident by India Post
Aadhaar,
which means “foundation” in many Indian languages, is the term for the
unique identity number issued by the UIDAI.No resident can have a
duplicate number since it is linked to their individual biometrics;
thereby identifying fake and ghost identities which result in leakages
today.Savings from eliminating duplicates and fakes through
Aadhaar-based identification will further enable governments to expand
benefits to other eligible residents.

One Aadhaar:
Aadhaar is a unique number, and no resident can have a duplicate number
since it is linked to their individual biometrics; thereby identifying
fake and ghost identities which result in leakages today. Savings from
eliminating duplicates and fakes through Aadhaar-based identification
will further enable governments to expand benefits to other eligible
residents.
Portability:
Aadhaar is a universal number, and agencies and services can contact
the central Unique Identification database from anywhere in the country
to confirm a beneficiary’s identity.
Inclusion of those without any existing identity documents:
A problem in reaching benefits to poor and marginalized residents is
that they often lack the identification documents they need to receive
State benefits; the “Introducer” system which has been approved for data
verification for the UIDAI will enable such residents to establish an
identity.
Electronic benefit transfers:
The UID-enabled-Bank-Account network will offer a secure and low cost
platform to directly remit benefits to residents without the heavy costs
associated today with benefit distribution; the leakages in the current
system will also be stemmed as a result.
Aadhaar-based authentication to confirm entitlement delivered to the beneficiary:
the UIDAI will offer online authentication services for agencies who
wish to validate a resident’s identity; this service will enable
confirmation of the entitlement actually reaching the intended
beneficiary.

Improved services through increased transparency: Clear accountability
and transparent monitoring would significantly improve access and
quality of entitlements to beneficiaries and the agency alike.
Self-service puts residents in control:
Using Aadhaar as an authentication mechanism, residents should be able
to access up-to-date information about their entitlements, demand
services and redress their grievances directly from their mobile phone,
kiosks or other means. In the case of self-service on the resident’s
mobile, security is assured using two-factor authentication (i.e. by
proving possession of the resident’s registered Mobile Number and
knowledge of the resident’s Aadhaar PIN). These standards are compliant
with the Reserve Bank of India’s approved standards for Mobile Banking
and Payments..
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 numbers for
these services.

Name
Date of Birth
Gender
Address
Parent/Guardian details (required for children, adults may provide)
Contact details phone and email (optional)

Biometric Information required:

Photo
10 finger prints
Iris

The UIDAI set up the Demographic data standards and verification
procedure committee under the Chairmanship of Shri N. Vittal to define
the data fields to be collected by the UIDAI and the verification
process to be followed. The Data Standards Committee submitted its
report on December 9, 2009. The full report is available at
http://uidai.gov.in/documents/UID_DDSVP_Committee_Report_v1.0.pdf.
UIDAI also set up the Biometrics standards committee under the
Chairmanship of Dr B.K Gairola (Director General, National Informatics
Centre) to define the standards and the nature of biometric data that is
required to be captured. The report of the Biometrics standards
committee was submitted on January 7, 2010 and is available at http://www.uidai.gov.in/documents/Biometrics_Standards_Committee_report.pdf

A
resident will have to go to an enrolling agency along with Proof of
photo Identity/ Proof of address documents, fill up an application
form(optional to Registrar) and provide the supporting documentation. If
resident does not have any document to prove his identity he will
require an Introducer to get him/herself enrolled.
The registrar
authorised person will verify the information with the documents
produced The demographic data will be entered in software.
Biometrics information of ten finger prints, both iris scan and facial photograph of the resident will also be captured
The data will be sent to CIDR
A de-duplication check comparing the Resident’s biometric information to
the records in the data base is done
If the individual is not already in the database, Aadhaar will be issued
and sent to the person at his/ her residence. The Aadhaar number will
also be sent to the Registrar for use in their service database.
If the individual is already in the database, or in case of any other
quality/data validation failure the application will be rejected and the
person will be informed of the same. The detailed process of Aadhaar
enrolment is available on the website under the RoB document

UIDAI is taking several steps to ensure data quality and integrity, such as:
The data collected will be in a standardized format on a software client provided by UIDAI which has built in quality controls.
In addition, UIDAI has empanelled enrolling agencies through an open bidding process.
Operators of enrolling agencies will have to be trained and certified by training agencies empanelled by the UIDAI.
UIDAI will periodically audit the processes followed by Registrars and enrolling agencies for AADHAAR enrolment.

There are 3 distinct methods of verification which are acceptable for AADHAAR enrolment:
Based on supporting documents
Based on introducer system
Based on the National Population Register (NPR) process of public scrutiny

UIDAI process accepts 18 PoI (Proof of Identity) and 33 PoA (Proof of Address) documents. Please click here
for a nationally valid list of documents. Common proofs of identity
and address are election photo ID card, Ration card, passport and
driving license.

Photo ID cards like PAN card and Govt ID cards are permissible for
identity proof. Address proof documents also include water &
electricity & telephone bills from the last three months.
In case you do not have above common proofs, Certificate of Identify
having photo issued by Gazetted Officer/Tehsildar on letterhead is also
accepted as PoI. Certificate of Address having photo issued by MP or MLA
/Gazetted Officer/Tehsildar on letterhead or by Village Panchayat head
or its equivalent authority (for rural areas) is accepted as valid PoA.
Even if someone in a family does not have individual valid documents,
the resident can still enrol if his/her name exists in family
entitlement document. In this case the Head of Family in entitlement
document needs to be enrolled first with valid PoI & PoA document.
The head of the household can then introduce other members in the family
while they are enrolling. UIDAI accepts 8 document types as Proof of
Relationship. Please click here for a nationally valid list of documents.
Where there are no documents available, resident may also take the help
of Introducers available at the enrolment centre. The Introducers are
notified by the Registrar. For further details please contact office of
the concerned Registrar.

UIDAI
recognises that some people particularly children, women, migrant
workers, homeless, nomadic tribes, urban poor and others may not be able
to produce documentary proof of identity and proof of address. In order
to enable inclusion of these individuals for AADHAAR, the data
standards committee recommended that the introducer system be created
similar to the introducer framework followed by banks for opening bank
accounts.
The main objective of the introducer system is to enable inclusion of
people into the UID system who are otherwise hard to reach and may not
be able to provide proof of identity and address. In situations where a
resident is unable to provide proof of identity or proof of address they
can be introduced for an aadhaar number by a pre designates
“Introducer”.

An Introducer is a person who is authorized to introduce a resident who
does not possess any PoA / PoI documents. The main objective of the
introducer system is to enable enrolment of residents into Aadhaar, who
are otherwise hard to reach and may not be part of any government
database.
Introducers are individuals (for example, Registrar’s employees, elected
members, members of local administration bodies, postmen, influencers
such as teachers & doctors, Anganwadi / ASHA workers, representative
of local NGO’s etc.) identified by a Registrar and registered in
UIDAI’s CIDR as “Introducers”.
Introducer’s are to be predominantly appointed by Registrars. In certain
cases UIDAI may choose to appoint introducer’s as well. It is the
intent of the UIDAI to ensure that multiple Introducers are available
for residents right down to the village level and in this regard will
encourage Registrars to consider appointing government officials, school
teachers, local NGO’s, anganwadi workers and other reliable persons as
Introducers.

What is the verification process that will be followed by the enrolling agency before processing the documents for a Aadhaar?

A
Demographic Data Fields Standards and Verification Procedure Committee
under the chairmanship of Shri N.Vittal, the former Chief Vigilance
Commissioner (CVC) has submitted its report with respect to the
verification procedure. The document is available on the website in the
Documents section.

What is the Registrar’s role in verification of documents during the enrolment?

Since
the enrolments for UIDAI is being done through Registrar’s, it is
responsibility of the Registrar to ensure that all PoA/PoI documents
provided by the Residents are verified properly. The preferred mode of
verification is through the Registrars employees but in exceptional
circumstances the Registrar may assign the same as specific deliverable
to EA that they engage. EA operator/supervisor will verify the document
and sign/stamp the copy of document as proof of verification. The
documents shall be properly tagged, indexed, and stored in a secure
manner so as to protect the documents from unauthorised access and
enable easy retrieval when required by UIDAI.

What documents should the Registrar examine during verification procedure?

The
Registrar should verify PoI (Proof of Identity) and PoA (Proof of
Address) documents. The Registrar will also verify DoB where resident
provides documents supporting verified Date of Birth. In case of head of
family based enrolments PoR (Proof of Relationship) documents will be
verified. The photocopy will be verified against the originals and
signed and stamped during the verification procedure. Please click here for a nationally valid list of documents.

Whether
the Ration card NEREGA Card etc can be accepted as Valid Proof of
Identity/Address for the family members listed in the document in case
they do not have separate PoI or PoA document?

Yes.
The family entitlement documents may be accepted as proof of
Identity/Address for family enrolments as long as the head of the family
whose photograph appears on the documents presents and verifies the
identity and address of the family members and the Registrar authorized
verifier countersigns the copy of the document as proof of
acknowledgement.

Whether UIDAI has defined process to be followed for Family enrolments?

Yes.
Head of the Family should invariably bring the original POI/POA for
verification and only those family members can be enrolled based on the
family entitlement document, whose names & other details are
recorded on it. For family enrolments it is desirable that the family
should come together for enrolment as far as possible. . In case all the
members cannot make it on the same day then the head of family should
invariably accompany the family member whenever he/she comes for the
enrolment

What
is the option if the address indicated on the PoA document appears to
be inadequate for postal delivery? Can additional information from the
residents be accepted?

Yes.
The resident may be allowed to add minor fields such as House No., Lane
No., Street Name, correcting typographic errors, minor changes/
corrections to pin code etc. to the address listed in the PoA document
as long as these additions/modifications do not alter the base address
mentioned in the PoA document. If the changes requested are substantial
and change the base address that is listed in the PoA, the resident will
require to provide an alternate PoA or enroll through an Introducer.

Where
multiple address proofs are available for a resident (eg. present and
native), which proof would UIDAI accept, and where will it send the
Aadhaar Letter?

The
UIDAI asks the resident to confirm the addresses ( from the multiple
address proof) on which he wants to receive the aadhaar letter .
Will the resident’s name be validated against PoA/PoI, or can it be
different? What if the resident has multiple PoA/PoI wherein each of
the identifications he/she has a different name? In this case, which
name has to be recorded in the Enrolment Center.
In the document based enrolment, the Enrolment Agency should verify the
proof of identity documents produced by the individual before recording
the name. The name of the person in full should be entered in the field
provided for this purpose. Ascertain from her/him the expansion of
her/his initials and check the same in the documentary evidence produced
before recording the name in full. In case of difference in the name
declared and the one in document (PoI), the name as declared by the
resident may be recorded by the Enrolment Agency provided the difference
is only in spelling. If two documentary proofs produced by the enrollee
have variation in the same name (i.e., with initials and full name),
the enrollee’s preferred name should be recorded. The last name can be
written prior to first name, if resident so desires.

How can a person’s Date of Birth be validated?

As
per the DDSVP Committee report, a flag is maintained in the Aadhaar
database to indicate if Date of Birth (DoB) is verified, declared, or
approximate. In case exact DoB is not known, the resident is asked to
indicate the age only. Enrolment software has the provision to capture
age & calculate the year of birth.

What is the introducer system and who can be an introducer?

UIDAI
recognises that some people particularly children, women, migrant
workers, homeless, nomadic tribes, urban poor and others may not be able
to produce documentary proof of identity and proof of address. In order
to enable inclusion of these individuals for AADHAAR, the data
standards committee recommended that the introducer system be created
similar to the introducer framework followed by banks for opening bank
accounts. The main objective of the introducer system is to enable
inclusion of people into the UID system who are otherwise hard to reach
and may not be able to provide proof of identity and address. In
situations where a resident is unable to provide proof of identity or
proof of address they can be introduced for an aadhaar number by a pre
designated “Introducer”.

Who are “Introducers”?

An
Introducer is a person who is authorized to introduce a resident who
does not possess any PoA / PoI documents. The main objective of the
introducer system is to enable enrolment of residents into Aadhaar, who
are otherwise hard to reach and may not be part of any government
database. Introducers are individuals (for example, Registrar’s
employees, elected members, members of local administration bodies,
postmen, influencers such as teachers & doctors, Anganwadi / ASHA
workers, representative of local NGO’s etc.) identified by a Registrar
and registered in UIDAI’s CIDR as “Introducers”.

What is the verification process that will be followed by the enrolling agency before processing the documents for a Aadhaar?

A
Demographic Data Fields Standards and Verification Procedure Committee
under the chairmanship of Shri N.Vittal, the former Chief Vigilance
Commissioner (CVC) has submitted its report with respect to the
verification procedure. The document is available on the website in the
Documents section.

Can anyone with Aadhaar number become an Introducer?

No, an Introducer has to be authorized by the enrolling Registrar & registered in UIDAI’s CIDR as an “Introducer”.

Who is eligible to become an Introducer?

The eligibility criteria for an Introducer is as follows:

Introducer should have an Aadhaar number prior to appointment; this needs to have
been issued basis PoI/PoA verification (i.e., an Introducer can not have been enrolled through another Introducer)
Introducer must be easily accessible to residents
Introducer must be above the age of 18 years
Introducer should not have been convicted for any offence (self-declaration for the same to be taken)

Can NGOs also become Introducers?

An
NGO as an organization cannot become an Introducer. However, an
official working for the NGO can become an Introducer. An Introducer
needs to have his/her Aadhaar number before he/she can become an
Introducer. UIDAI will issue Aadhaar number to individuals & not to
organizations.

What are the guidelines for appointing Introducers?

Broad guidelines that can be used by registrars for creating a list of introducers within their domain are as follows:

The list of approved Introducers should go down till the village level
so that the process of registration is not hampered due to lack of
introducers.
Residents should have access to multiple Introducers so as to reduce
dependence and potential constraints of having a single Introducer.
The Registrars need not keep the list of approved Introducers limited to
their own department/organization. Village teachers, anganwadi workers,
ASHA workers, postmen and even representatives of local NGO’s could be
appointed as approved Introducers by Registrars. As an example, in
NREGA, there are a number of NGOs involved in NREGA social audit, and
the Registrars could nominate some of the representatives of these NGOs
who work at the village level as the approved Introducers.

Introducer list should include members from credible organizations which
have traditionally been advocates of vulnerable communities to make
sure goal of inclusion is truly achieved. For example, in the case of
migrant workers, members from their employers (in large industries like
construction, mining, etc) or representatives of NGOs who work
specifically for their welfare could be recognized as Introducers.

What are the liabilities & obligations of Introducers?

Obligation of the Introducer:

Introducer confirms the identity and address of the resident they are introducing.
Introducer must only introduce residents who do not have documentary proof of identity or address.
Introducer is not obliged to introduce every person who approaches them .
Introducer cannot charge fees for introducing residents.
Liability of the Introducer – The Introducer maybe criminally liable if:

Introducer colludes with a person to impersonate another person (dead or alive) at the time of enrolment.
Introducer helps an Aadhaar holder to deliberately take on the identity
of another person by changing their demographic information or colludes
to provide false biometric information.

Will Introducers be limited to an area or can they introduce people anywhere in the country?

Introducers
will be linked to a Registrar (one or many). Therefore, the Introducer
can only introduce people with the Registrar’s jurisdiction. In
addition, a Registrar can further limit the operations of an Introducer
by administrative boundaries (State district level .)

Can the Registrar add / remove Introducers at a later stage?

Yes,
Registrars can add / remove / modify Introducers at a later stage. The
area of operations of an Introducer can also be modified at a later
stage. UIDAI encourages Registrars to review performance of Introducers
on an on-going basis and make changes to the list as required.

Can I get an Aadhaar if I do not have Ration Card/Election Card ?

UIDAI process accepts 18 PoI (Proof of Identity) and 33 PoA (Proof of Address) documents. Please click here
for a nationally valid list of documents. Common proofs of identity and
address are election photo ID card, Ration card, passport and driving
license.
Photo ID cards like PAN card and Govt ID cards are permissible for
identity proof. Address proof documents also include water &
electricity & telephone bills from the last three months.
In case you do not have above common proofs, Certificate of Identify
having photo issued by Gazetted Officer/Tehsildar on letterhead is also
accepted as PoI.
Certificate of Address having photo issued by MP or
MLA /Gazetted Officer/Tehsildar on letterhead or by Village Panchayat
head or its equivalent authority (for rural areas) is accepted as valid
PoA.
Even if someone in a family does not have individual valid documents,
the resident can still enrol if his/her name exists in family
entitlement document. In this case the Head of Family in entitlement
document needs to be enrolled first with valid PoI & PoA document.
The head of the household can then introduce other members in the family
while they are enrolling. UIDAI accepts 8 document types as Proof of
Relationship. Please click here for a nationally valid list of documents.
Where there are no documents available, resident may also take the help
of Introducers available at the enrolment centre. The Introducers are
notified by the Registrar. For further details please contact office of
the concerned Registrar.

How does the UIDAI protect the individual and their information?

Protection
of the individual, and the safeguarding their information is inherent
in the design of the UID project. From having a random number which does
not reveal anything about the individual to other features listed
below, the UID project keeps the interest of the resident at the core of
its purpose and objectives.
Collecting limited information
Data collected by the UIDAI is purely to issue Aadhaar numbers, and
confirm the identity of Aadhaar number holders. The UIDAI is collecting
basic data fields in order to be able to establish identity this
includes Name, Date of Birth, Gender, Address, Parent/ Guardian’s name
essential for children but not for others, mobile number and email id is
optional as well . The UIDAI is collecting biometric information to
establish uniqueness therefore collecting photo, 10 finger prints and
iris.
No profiling and tracking information collected
The UIDAI policy bars it from collecting sensitive personal information
such as religion, caste, community, class, ethnicity, income and health.
The profiling of individuals is therefore not possible through the UID
system, since the data collected is limited to that required for
identification and identity confirmation. The UIDAI had in fact, dropped
the place of birth data field part of the initial list of information
it planned to collect based on feedback from CSOs that it could lead to
profiling.
The UIDAI also does not collect any transaction records of the
individual. The records of an individual confirming their identity
through Aadhaar will only reflect that such a confirmation happened.
This limited information will be retained for a short period time in the
interest of the resident, to resolve any disputes.
Release of information – yes or no response
The UIDAI is barred from revealing personal information in the Aadhaar
database the only response permitted are a yes or no to requests to
verify an identity .
The only exceptions are the order of a court,
or the order of a joint secretary, in case of national security . This
is a reasonable exception and is clear and precise. This approach is
also in line with security norms followed in US and Europe on access to
data in case of a security threat.

Data protection and privacy

The UIDAI has the obligation to ensure the security and confidentiality
of the data collected . The data will be collected on software provided
by the UIDAI and encrypted to prevent leaks in transit. Trained and
certified enrollers will collect the information, who will not have
access to the data being collected.
The UIDAI has a comprehensive security policy to ensure the safety and
integrity of its data. It will publish more details on this, including
the Information Security Plan and Policies for the CIDR and mechanisms
for auditing the compliance of the UIDAI and its contracting agencies.
In addition, there will be strict security and storage protocols in
place. Penalties for any security violation will be severe, and include
penalties for disclosing identity information . There will also be penal
consequences for unauthorised access to CIDR including hacking , and
penalties for tampering with data in the CIDR .

Convergence and linking of UIDAI information to other databases
The UID database is not linked to any other databases, or to information
held in other databases. Its only purpose will be to verify a person’s
identity at the point of receiving a service, and that too with the
consent of the aadhaar number holder. The UID database will be guarded
both physically and electronically by a few select individuals with high
clearance. It will not be available even for many members of the UID
staff and will be secured with the best encryption, and in a highly
secure data vault. All access details will be properly logged.

Who will have access to the UID database? How will the security of the database be ensured?

Residents who have aadhaar numbers will be entitled to access their own information stored in the UID database.
CIDR operations will be follow strict access protocols to limit access to the database.
The database itself will be secured against hacking and other forms of cyberattacks

How will the grievances of the resident be addressed?

The
UIDAI will set up a Contact Centre to manage all queries and grievances
and serve as a single point of contact for the organization. The
details of the Contact Centre will be published on the website as and
when enrolment begins.
The users of this system are expected to be residents, registrars and enrolment agencies.
Any
resident seeking enrolment is given a printed acknowledgement form with
an Enrolment Number, that enables the resident to make queries about
her/his enrolment status through any communication channel of the
contact centre.
Each
enrolment agency will be given a unique code that will also enable
faster and pointed access to the Contact Centre that includes a
technical helpdesk.

Grievance Redressal Mechanism

Will there be a grievance redressal mechanism?

Yes,
there will be concern and issues that residents or UIDAI eco system
partner may have in terms of enrolment, authentication and identity
frauds etc. . The UIDAI has set up a Contact Centre that serves as a
single point of contact for the organization. The existing channels of
communications are :
Voice (Helpline number: 1800 1801947),FAX (080-2353 1947 ,Letter(P.O.
Box number 1947, Bengaluru- 560 001) and E-mail (help@uidai.gov.in).

What is the Registrar / EA’s role in grievance resolution?

The
registrar is expected to put in place a team that would serve to
quickly address any matters requiring resolution that may pertain to the
Registrar, but may be conveyed to the UIDAI Contact Centre. Queries /
grievances which need Registrar/enrolment agency involvement will be
transferred to the Registrar appointed nodal officer through a web
portal. The time taken for resolutions will be finalized jointly.

What if a Resident gets rejected by the UIDAI and is not issued the Aadhaar no.?

The reason for rejection along with steps to be taken post rejection will be communicated to the resident and the Registrar.

What if a Resident misplaces his Aadhaar letter /forgets his Aadhaar no.?

The
resident can contact the Contact Centre (through phone / letter /
email) with the enrolment number and make a request for sending a second
letter communicating the Aadhaar number. This may be a paid service.
In case the Aadhaar number has been used to avail a service or benefit,
the resident can contact the agency that offers the same, to obtain the
Aadhaar number.

What if the Aadhaar letter does not get delivered to a Resident?

Your
Aadhaar number should reach the address provided during enrolment
normally within 90 days of enrolment. If not, the resident will need to
call/email the UIDAI Contact Centre with the enrolment number.
What can the Resident do if there are spelling mistakes / other demographic error in his/her Aadhaar letter?
During enrolment, even when the data is entered, the resident can see
the data entry and is expected to point out errors at this stage. Prior
to finalization and printing of the Enrolment Acknowledgment, one more
opportunity is presented to make corrections.
In the event that both opportunities are missed, the demographic
correction may be carried out by visiting the enrolment centre within 48
hours of time of enrolment carrying the relevant documents and
enrolment slip.
