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, https://eaadhaar.uidai.gov.in/ . 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.
