It is important for every citizen in India to have an Aadhaar card. Otherwise they will be deprived of the most valuable facility of the government. This is why everyone gets their Aadhaar cards. Do this immediately if Aadhaar card is lost: step to get back.
Aadhaar was launched in 2009 for global identity recognition of Indian citizens and the 12-digit number in it has become the identity of every Indian. It has been 13 years since Aadhaar card came. Today many changes have been made in this, name, address and photo can be changed online.
So what to do if everyone lost Aadhaar card?, how to get it back?. If the Aadhaar card is lost, the central government has provided other facilities to get it back. You can easily get back using your mobile number on the official UIDAI website. It is also possible to get a duplicate Aadhaar card from the official website of UIDAI by providing the Aadhaar card registration number.
But the OTP will come only if you provide the mobile number linked with the Aadhaar card. Rs 50 Fees must be paid. Registration number is not required if mobile number is linked. Here the OTP will be sent to the linked mobile number or e-mail ID only. After you confirm by entering the received OTP, your Aadhaar number will be sent to the mobile number or e-mail id.
The received Aadhaar number can be used to download your Aadhaar or order a reprint of your Aadhaar. Before this it is important to lock Aadhaar as soon as it is lost.
