FAQs

Q: Does my name matter while fetching my Digital RC & DL through DigiLocker? I can see a non-editable field for the Aadhaar name while filing out the required details.
A: While fetching the MoRTH digital records in DigiLocker, your name in your Aadhaar card should match your name in the RC & DL database of the National Register. This ensures that only the rightful owner of the documents is able to fetch the digital DL & RC.

Q: I am getting an error message "The details provided did not match the issuer data. Please try again with some changes." What does this mean and what can I do get my data?
A: This message can come if some of the details filled by you are incorrect. Please check your data and try again.

Q: I followed the instructions but could not get my digital RC & DL via DigiLocker. It says "No record available in issuer database for given document no. Please check your document no and try again." Why am I unable to get my documents?
A: DigiLocker has integrated with the National Register, which is a central database maintained by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. If your DL or RC record does not exist in the National Register, DigiLocker will be unable to get it for you.

Q: My mobile number is registered with CBSE, and I have received the SMS with DigiLocker credentials but I’m unable to login.
A: For logging into DigiLocker with the credentials sent by CBSE via SMS, please note that the password is in lower-case characters.
Your mother's first name in (lower case) should exactly match with the name written on your admit card. E.g. If your mother's name on your admit card is A Sharma and roll number is 1234567, your password will be a4567. If your mother’s name on your admit card is Sushmita Mahajan and your roll number is 1234567, your password will be sushmita4567.

Q: My mobile is updated in my Aadhaar number, but I cannot use it to link my DigiLocker account with Aadhaar. It gives an error message - 'Mobile number is not linked with Aadhaar'.
A: For linking your DigiLocker account with Aadhaar, your mobile must be linked with your Aadhaar number. Please make sure this is actually the case.
To verify this, visit E-Aadhaar website and download your eAadhaar. You will be able to check the linked mobile number (last four digits) during this process.

Q: I have forgotten my DigiLocker username/password. What should I do?
A: To recover your username/password, please visit Digilocker website and use the Forgot Password/Forgot Username link.

Q: How can I change the information displayed (like email, mobile etc) in my Aadhaar profile on DigiLocker?
A: The information displayed in your Aadhaar profile in your DigiLocker account (like name, address, email, mobile etc) is for display purposes. This data is only fetched from UIDAI and it is not possible to make any changes to this data from DigiLocker. To make changes to your Aadhaar data, please visit your nearest Aadhaar enrolment center.

Q: I forgot my password but when I go to forgot username/ forgot password link and enter my Aadhaar number I am getting error "You are not a registered user".
A: This may be because you have not yet linked your Aadhaar number with DigiLocker. Please try using alternate link for Non Aadhaar users.

Q: I registered in DigiLocker but I want to change my username, is there any way to do so?
A: Username once created in Digilocker cannot be changed in the current version of the application.

Q: I want to change my registered mobile number in my Digilocker account? Is there any provision to update mobile number?
A: Yes, the mobile number used during the DigiLocker signup process can be updated. This option is available in the profile section (only while DigiLocker is not linked with Aadhaar).

Q: I am a NRI (Non Resident Indian), can I sign up using a foreign mobile number?
A: No, it is not possible. You can register in DigiLocker using Indian mobile number only.

Q: DigiLocker now allows citizens to access their digital Aadhaar. What is digital Aadhaar? Is it the same as the eAadhaar issued by UIDAI?
A: Digital Aadhaar in DigiLocker is the same as eAadhaar issued by UIDAI website. DigiLocker has partnered with UIDAI to make it available automatically to its users when they link their DigiLocker account with Aadhaar.  The advantage of digital Aadhaar is that it can now be used in the same way as any other DigiLocker document.
