The Aadhaar card acts as both a proof of residence and a proof of identity. After completing the enrolling procedure, individuals can print their E-Aadhaar card by downloading it from UIDAI’s official website. An e-Aadhaar is an electronic copy of your Aadhaar that has been digitally signed by a government official and is password-protected. Visit to download this password-protected document.

1. Your Aadhaar Number Can Be Used to Download Your e-Aadhaar

By following the instructions below, you can obtain an e-Aadhaar if you already have an Aadhaar number and Aadhaar card:

UIDAI’s website may be found at Under ‘My Aadhaar,’ select ‘Download Aadhaar.’

1234/1234/1234 is the format of your 12-digit UID. Enter your UID Number exactly in the same format. 

If you want a Masked Aadhaar*, click the Check box. If this is not the case, do not check the box.

Fill in the captcha that has been supplied.

Select either ‘Send OTP’** or ‘Enter a TOTP’*** after that.

Proceed to download your e-Aadhaar by entering the OTP or TOTP data.


**: You can mask or conceal your Aadhaar number in the e-Aadhaar you want to download with the masked Aadhaar option.

**: If you go for this option, a one-time password will be texted to the phone number you provided.

***: A TOTP is a one-time password that is good for 30 seconds only. It is an 8-digit string of digits that is unique to each user. The validation server and the token creation app, in this case, the mAadhaar mobile application, create this number.

2. Get your e-Aadhaar using your Enrollment ID (EID)

You can also recieve an electronic copy of your Aadhaar card using your enrollment ID. To do so, follow these steps:

Enter your ENO, which is 14 digits long.

A calendar may be found next to the ENO option. To insert the 14-digit date-time stamp shown on your enrollment slip, select this calendar.

Select the option if you want to download an Aadhaar that is masked. Otherwise, do not tick the box.

Fill in the captcha information provided.

‘Send OTP’ or ‘Enter a TOTP’ are the options.

Submit the information for the OTP or TOTP.

7. Obtain Your Aadhaar Card through UMANG

The National e-Government Division (NeGD) and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) have developed UMANG as a government-wide initiative.

‘View Aadhaar Card from DigiLocker’ should be selected.

How to Get Your Aadhaar Card Printed

You will need to print your e-Aadhaar after you have downloaded it.

For printing your e-Aadhaar after you have downloaded it, follow these steps:

Your e-Aadhaar is a document in pdf format. As a result, you’ll need to open it using a pdf viewer (such as Adobe Acrobat or Microsoft Edge).

Please make an entry of your password. The first four letters of your name (in capital letters) will be your password, followed by the year of your birth in the format YYYY.

Your password will be ‘RAJE1998’ if your name is Rajeev Kumar and your date of birth is 8/6/1998.

After you’ve opened the file, choose the ‘Print’ option, enter the number of copies you want to print, and click ‘Print.’

Make sure your phone or computer is connected to a printer before proceeding. If you don’t have a printer available, you can download the file to a portable device or send yourself an email that you can print from a computer with access to one.
