Aadhaar Number Eligibility Criteria

Who can get an Aadhaar?

An individual who is a resident in India and satisfies the verification process laid down by the UIDAI can get an Aadhaar.


A person of any age can get an aadhaar. For children below 3 years, biometric details will not be taken and the aadhaar will be linked to guardians/parents. They shall have to register biometrics when they turn 5 years of age. For children between 5 to 15 years, the biometric shall be re-registered again when they turn 15 years of age, as biometrics change with age.

  • Very good Process.Sufficient time may be given for all persons for taking Uid number. It is learned that it is not mandatory as now,hence the cooperation from the general public is necessary.For that sufficient numbers of permanent enrolling centers may be opened.

    The date of Birth is also enrolled in the PAN Card. Hence the PAN card may be treated as the document to prove both. the Identity and Date of Birth

    i just received the notice from Indian bank for submitting documents for both ID proof and Address Proof,

    I dont have any address proof listed in the documents requirements but I have Gas Connection (I am from a different location getting to change Voter ID, Ration Card Passport are time consuming process)

    Can i used gas connection as address proof?

  • There is a lack of uniformity in the way the general public are guided, advised for matters related to I-card etc.

    Presently, whereas the UID Application Form is available in the internet for downloading, there are certain counters which reject unloaded forms and they press for the original forms to be submitted provided from these counters. How come people manning the counters are not properly advised and educated on the lines they need to work?

    Why are these people allowed to hold on to such positions when they hardly meet the criteria required for public dealings?

    Can some higher ups look in to these flip-flops created in government offices and pull up such people who do not meet the criteria required for public dealing?
