How to download Aadhaar?

UIDAI allows you to access your Aadhaar card anywhere and everywhere. You can download your Aadhaar card and use it as a proof of your identity. Aadhaar printed in the downloaded Aadhaar contains details of the person’s name, address, gender, photo and date of birth in the same way. The downloaded base also includes the base generation date and the base download date. It is a digitally signed document.

UIDAI clarified in April 2017 that ‘downloaded Aadhaar’ or ‘e-Aadhaar’ is a valid and secure electronic document that should be included with the printed Aadhaar.
