List of Documents required to Apply Aadhar Card

UIDAI accepts a number of documents as your Proof of Address and Proof of Identity for Aadhar Enrollment. Candidates have to take the original and photocopy of documents to the enrollment center where the Aadhar Official will scan your documents and then uploaded them for online verification purpose.

You have to submit minimum one Proof of Identity and Proof of Address as documents needed for Aadhar application. Though in some cases where the same document can be accepted both as Proof of Identity and Proof of Address, then you can submit only one document. For minors who are enrolling with documents of their parents, a copy of Proof of Relation (PoR) also needs to be submitted.

Pls advise since now I have no permanent address.

    I shifted my in-laws 2 years back from Mysore to Ahmedabad. Last September, my father-in-iaw passed away. After his death, we came to know that he has nominated my mother-in-law for the funds he had in different banks.Since my mother-in-law is a old tradition and reserved kind of a woman, and has hardly travelled out of mysore, she does not have any identification cards or the type of documents that are required for applying Aadhar Card. We tried to produce a certificate from a Gazzeted Officer, and an affidivit. But the Aadhar Card centre did not entertain that. Hence, we seek your advice as to how to proceed further. She urgently needs Aadhar Card to open an account in a bank to transfer my fund left behind by my father-in-law.
    Anticipating a favourable response from you.
