Aadhaar Card Status

Your Aadhaar card is a vital document issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). This unique 12-digit identification number serves as proof of identity and address for accessing various government services, financial transactions, and other essential purposes in India.

To check your Aadhaar card status, you will need one of the following pieces of information, your Enrollment ID (EID), Service Request Number (SRN), or Update Request Number (URN).  Your EID is the 14-digit number on your enrollment acknowledgment slip, along with the date and time of enrollment.

SRNs and URNs are assigned when you initiate or submit an update request.
