Applying and Aadhar Card Online is a very easy procedure. But before applying you must know what actually an Aadhar Card is?

Aadhar Card is a 12-digit unique number granted to all Indian citizens. Right now it’s not mandatory to have Aadhar Card but I think it’s a necessity for every Indian citizen today. Possessing Aadhar Card will help you to identify yourself wherever in India for almost any purpose. The main benefits of having Aadhar card is that Government is linking various benefits schemes with it.

There is no issue of duplicity in Aadhar Card enrollment. As every individual will give its own biometric information like iris scan, your photograph, and thumb impression so it makes the Aadhar card unique from other Government-issued identification documents.

Now to take the advantage of all the benefits of Aadhar Card you have to apply for it. Here I will give you the details on how to Aadhar card Apply online with an easy way out.

But if you are expecting that enrollment for Aadhar card is a completely online process, so let me clear you. There is no direct provision to apply for Aadhar card online. Because the process of enrollment includes document verification with biometric scanning like finger scanning, iris scanning and clicking on a photograph which can’t be done online.

So it is mandatory  for everyone to visit the Aadhar Kendra at a location of your preference in order to apply for Aadhar. However, you can save a lot of your time by doing some things online.

You can only take an online appointment for Aadhar Enrollment from official Website of UIDAI. This facility is available on selected Aadhar Card centers in India.
