Can I use my e-Aadhaar as a valid form of Aadhaar?
Curious about Aadhar
Yes, you can use your eAadhaar as a valid form of Aadhaar. The eAadhaar is an electronically generated version of your Aadhaar card that is digitally signed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). It carries the same value and authenticity as a physical Aadhaar card.
To access your eAadhaar, you can download it from the UIDAI's official website using your Aadhaar number or Enrolment ID (EID). Once downloaded, the eAadhaar can be printed and used as a valid proof of identity wherever Aadhaar is accepted.
It's important to note that the eAadhaar is password protected. The password to open the eAadhaar PDF file is your PIN code, which is the sixdigit postal code of the address provided during Aadhaar enrollment.
Whether it's a physical Aadhaar card or an eAadhaar, both are considered equally valid and can be used interchangeably for various purposes that require Aadhaar as a proof of identity or address.
