Anyone who has stayed in India for 182 days or more, in the 12 months right before the date of application is eligible to apply for an Aadhaar card.

  • Now you can locate enrollment centre by entering details of State, Pincode or by directly entering name of the place.

  • Once the Aadhar enrolment centre is located, the candidate can visit the centre with documents for proof of address, identity and date of birth.
  • Submit the required documents
  • Once the documents are verified,  biometric scanning will be done, where all ten of his fingers will be scanned to establish the unique identity.
  • Candidate's iris will be scanned then.
  • Once these procedures are complete, photograph of the applicant will be taken by the web-camera at the enrolment centre.
  • You will receive an acknowledgment slip from Aadhar enrollment center. The top of your acknowledgement slip contains 14 digit enrolment number (1234/12345/12345) and the 14 digit date and time (dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss) of enrolment. These 28 digits together form your Enrolment ID (EID).
