The enrolments for Aadhar Cards are generally over in most states of the country and now people are being dispatched it by post. Yet, there are many who are still to receive their aadhar cards. For them, the UIDAI or the ‘Unique Identification Authority of India’ who is responsible for the creation of Aadhar cards, have launched an online web portal on their website where you may enter the requisite details and get an e-aadhar card which can be printed and used as an original Aadhar card. Follow the steps below to know how to get your e-aadhar card:-
