Even if your Aadhaar-registered mobile number is lost or no longer working, you can still download your Aadhaar card now.
E-Aadhaar is an electronic version of the Aadhaar card that includes biometric and demographic information such as the Aadhaar number, photo, and demographic information such as name, date of birth, and gender. E-Aadhaar obtained from the UIDAI website is legally equivalent to the original UIDAI-issued Aadhaar. All agencies should be able to accept both.
If someone refuses to accept the downloaded e-Aadhaar, the Aadhaar bearer may file a complaint with the department/higher agency's authorities.
AS per the latest UIDAI notification Order reprint option is not available in that case individuals can opt for an Order PVC card by paying minimal charges.
