How to add / register your mobile number with your Aadhaar card

Missed your aadhaar card somewhere? Want to get new aadhaar card? You can easily download your Aadhaar card and print it for further use. But you should have your number registered with your aadhaar card while enrollment process. Even though you have given your number at the time of aadhaar taking, the officials sometimes would have missed to add your number in the database. Then you can't download your aadhaar card if your number is not available in the udai website. This happened to me and how learn how I obtained the aadhaar card after updating the mobile number. This is my personnel experience. Read on.

I have lost my Aadhaar card

I had given my number while aadhaar enrollment was done. But shit, they had not updated in the record. I came to know this only after my aadhaar is lost somewhere. I searched in my home and other places many times. But did not able to find my aadhaar card. Then I decided to download the aadhaar card using my phone number. I have entered 12 digit aadhaar number, name as per aadhaar card (Luckily I had the Xerox copy as well as other part of the printed original aadhaar card) and PIN code. When I press to submit to send OTP, I got shocked. Because it displayed your registered mobile number is not valid. Oh my God! I was not able to download the aadhaar card online at the official website, . Then I read about what can be done to register the mobile number again. 

How I registered my mobile number with Aadhaar

There is only one way to register. It can't be registered online myself. I need to go to aadhaar e-seva centre and apply. I then straight away went to the centre of aadhaar e-seva which was near the Taluk office. In every city, it will be nearer to Taluk office. So find where it is in your city. Then there was some agents offering the form and filling up. Those agents will collect some money for doing this job. I approached one agent and told what happened to me. He then taken a form which is called adhaar enrollment / correction form. He filled up all the details like my name, address mobile number and added the notes at the end. He described in notes what should be done for me. See the attachment provided below to know how to fill it. He asked me to give Rs.20 and I gave.

Then I have submitted it to the official of the e-seva centre. One lady was there to do this job. She asked me to put two thumbs on the aadhaar scanning machine and sit infront of the camera to scan eye impression. She verified and then she can able to modify the details. She updated my number there and gave me an acknowledgement slip for the same. She charged me Rs.30 for this update. But the number is not updated immediately and it will be in queue and after 10 days, I can see my number updated in the web portal of the UDAI. Then I easily download the generated aadhaar card and printed it for further use. 

You can follow these steps in case your number is not yet registered with your aadhaar card. You can also use this method if you want to change your mobile number. If your old mobile number is not active and you are not using it anymore, then you can request this update to have your current active mobile number there. You need to spend totally Rs.50 and time. Thanks for reading my experience on how I registered my mobile number with aadhaar card.

Sample Republic Day 2018 Speech in English

Would like to refer sample republic day speech for upcoming republic day on 26th January 2018? Here is a sample speech drafted for you. You may use this speech in your school or college or university or office or public meeting where the celebration of republic day is to be held. First of all, You should know clearly what is republic day and what is independence day.
Independence Day- The day (15th August 1947) India got freedom from the British ruling
Republic Day- The day (26th January 1950) India has set up its own Government to rule.
So it took approximately 3 years to frame the rules and regulations. Now we will the sample speech as described below.

Sample / Model / Example Republic Day 2018 Speech in English for Schools / Colleges / Universities / Offices

Respected Principal / Headmasters, Teachers and my dear friends,
A very good morning to one and all. We have gathered here today (26th January 2018) on the occasion of India's 69th Republic Day since 1950. First of all, I would like to thank our college / school management for offering me an opportunity to deliver a speech about our great and beloved country.

India has got Independence from the British ruling on 15th August 1947. Then it took three years to make our own Constitution. India's Constitution is the world's largest written one. Dr.B.R.Ambedkar made a great contribution to frame our constitution. On 26th January 1950, our constitution came into force. So officially, this the first day for India to be under own ruling and no British ruling. This is called our Republic Day. This day the constitution of India gave the supreme power to the people of India. So the dream of ruling themselves came true on this day. 

According to our constitution, any person can become leader in India. This should be done through voting system. For that, the election commission was set up on this day itself. The process of electing representatives every five years to the Lok Sabha and State Vidhan Sabhas started. The political party who win the majority of seats in Lok Sabha election will form the Government at the centre and the members of the such party (MP) will then select their leader as Prime Minister. Similarly, the majority party in Vidhan Sabhas will rule the state and the members (MLA) will select the Chief Minister. Both MP and MLA will select the President who is the constitutional  head of India.

Any person who have reached 18 years of age can be allowed to vote in elections. As we are under 18 (school students), we can't vote until we finish up the schooling. However, we may get the chance to vote during our college life, if election comes during those days. So we must know how the administration of our local bodies, states and the country is on the run. We can refer so many books in our library to know all thinks about our India. We can also get opt guidance from our beloved teachers. So we should proud of this day 26th January 2018, a very happy republic day. Thank you all!
