Govt says do not share photocopy of Aadhaar


Date – 27 May 2022


Do not share photocopy of your Aadhaar with any organizations because it can be misused. Alternatively, please use a masked Aadhaar which displays only the last 4 digits of your Aadhaar number. It can be downloaded from UIDAI official website https://myaadhaar.uidai.gov.in. Please select the option “Do you want a masked Aadhaar” and proceed to download.

The existence of any Aadhar number can be verified at https://myaadhar.uidai.gov.in /verify Aadhar. To verify offline, you can scan the QR code on e- Aadhar or Aadhar letter or Aadhar PVC cars using QR code scanner in the mAadhar mobile application.

Please avoid using a public computer at an internet café/kiosk to download e-Aadhaar. However if you do so, please ensure that you delete all the downloaded copies of e-Aadhaar permanently from that computer.

Only those organizations that have obtained a User License from the UIDAI can use Aadhaar for establishing the identity of a person. Unlicensed private entities like hotels or film halls are not permitted to collect or keep copies of Aadhaar card. It is an offence under the Aadhaar Act 2016.
