Tutorial for downloading AADHAAR Card

Tutorial for downloading AADHAAR Card
Aadhar Card


If you have applied for Aadhaar Card and still not recieved the delivery of the card please read on

This is tutorial for downloading AADHAAR CARD from website.  The downloading part is easy but the Validating Signature Part is a little complicated so I have tried to simplify the same.
You will need a stable internet connection, an Adobe reader latest version, get it here. , your reciept issued by the authorities during registration process.  This reciept is important as it contains the Enrolment No., date, time and the Name of the applicant.
When you have these ready, go to eaadhaar.uidai.gov.in,  there  enter the details as given in the fields. 

Enter the date in mm dd yyyy format.  Enter the name of applicant as it appears on the reciept.  Enter the Pincode no.
IMPORTANT :
 PINCODE NUMBER WILL BE YOUR PASSWORD FOR THE AADHAR CARD DOWNLOADED IN PDF FORMAT
Press submit button
You will get a fresh page giving your mobile No. as ****420(your no.) and ask you to confirm, if the mobile number is correct, press yes. 
When you confirm, you will get a One Time Pass (OTP) on your mobile.  This number has to be given in the next field.
After entering the No. press submit.

You will start downloading a PDF file containing your AADHAAR Card. 
Double click the PDF file it will ask for password enter your Pin Code as password.  It will open the PDF file

But this is not enough
Now in the PDF file of AADHAAR on the right hand side there is
a sign called "Validity Unknown". 

Follow the following steps


1) Right click on the ‘validity unknown’ icon and click on ‘Validate Signature’.
2) You will get the signature validation status window, click on ‘Signature Properties’.
3) Click on ‘Show Certificate..
4 ) Verify that there is a certification path named 'CCA India 2011'. This identifies CCA India as the owner of the digital certificate that has been used when signing the document.
5) Mark the certification path named 'CCA India 2011', click the 'Trust' tab and then 'Add to Trusted Identities'.
   In the TRUST  field click all subfields.
 6) Answer 'OK' to any security question that follows.
7) Check(√) the field for 'Use this certificate as a trusted root' and click 'OK' twice to close this and the next window.
8) Click 'Validate Signature' to execute the validation.


The Adobe will contact server for validating signature.  Keep repeating the process until the
"Validity Unknown" changes to Validity Known.  This may take a long time so don't panic.

Once it changes to Validity Known Print your AADHAR CARD.
IT CANT BE SAVED IN PEN DRIVE OR CD UNLESS YOU HAVE A PDF WRITER SOFTWARE WITH YOU

PS many of readers have complained about Adobe not validating even after 50-60 tries, I request you to abruptly cancel the validating process when Adobe validates the sign with its servers.  It works.

  17. @Md Abdul, Mr.Abdul had you given your mobile number during the process or have you changed your mobile since then. If so I cant help you. The mobile number given at the time of registration is used by the UIDAI to send you the OTP.

    Hope this clears your doubts.

  22. @Venu, This seems to be a software problem, maybe you have pirated OS on your system, try downloading it on a Genuine Windows PC or laptop. That should solve your problem. Please let me know if it doesnt solve your problem.

  31. Mr.Varadarajan, Sir, first a request to you, please never divulge your personal details on public fora. Other than that if you have the receipt of the Aadhaar registration given to you at the time of registering for Aadhaar, use it as per the tutorial. Putting the Aadhaar card number will no help you if you want to see what a registration looks like I will post a image of the same. Kindly revert if you need any other help

  36. Hi Vijay,

    How long it will take to get a adhaar card updated in portal site, after our registration.

    I have registered on 07.05.2013 for adhaar card. Now I try to download, it is saying "the EID card is still not with us". When can I download my adhar card from portal site?

    Please clarify.

    Thanks,

    1. Hello Satish, have you typed in the details correctly, the time and date should be in same format as it is on the registration receipt. In the meantime I would say that it is too early because you have applied only recently.

      Wait for another 15 days and try it in the second week of June, they take upto 20 days for uploading data.

      After that you can use my tutorial to download it. Keep visiting my website for further details

  40. Hello,
    I am getting a same problem like Venu (coment posted on 4 march 2013)
    i have validated the file and all i can see on my file is " Signature Valid with (TICK) Mark (GREEN) digitally signed by kharakwal amitabh.

    I have a genuine Windows OS on my laptop.
    Has anyone else got such a problem and resolved?

    1. Sachin I have reported this problem to the UIDAI officials but have not received any reply yet. It seems to be a problem faced by many due to non resolution of signature within UIDAI's infra.

      The only solution I can think of is that you kill the entire process and log out. And try the process again. In between if I get a concrete solution, I will mail you the same and post it here. Thanks

  42. Hello Vijay/all,

    I am facing the same problem as Venu and Sachin. The certification path shown while validating the signature in my E-Aadhaar pdf is: "Kharkawal Amitabh" instead of "CCA India 2011" mentioned in the 'Help' section of the Official UIDAI website. Please do let us know once there is a solution to this issue.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Well Sagar as said earlier I have already sent two mails to the UIDAI tech centre but have still not received any reply.

      Sagar, if you could mail me scanned copy of your registration to support@comboudates.com, I could try it on my PC and tell them the exact problem you guyz are facing.

      Kindly let me know

  43. i wanted to know that there is any problem if the signature is not validated??

    1. Shilpa sure there is need to get the signature validated. How else would the Aadhaar card be valid anywhere. If you are not using is then it is ok to just save it for reference. But if you want a printout and want to use it anywhere, the signature verification is a must. Hope that clears your doubt.
      Please do write in if you have any problems

    1. Hi Sudha, when you click the trust select all trust identities and then press validate. When that happens that you try it out for 10 15 times and CANCEL the validating part inbetween when it is communicating with its servers, that has helped.

      If that doesnt help follow the above instructions on a different PC all together. Hope this helps

From on that day onwards we are following with the VAO so response.

    1. Hello, Mr.Raju, one of the first things I would like to advise you is to never give your cell number and personal information on any site including mine. They may be used for unwanted reasons. Next about your enrolment slip. You will receive Aadhaar card without the slip at your postal address, however if you want to download the Aadhaar Card online, you require the enrolment slip. You can contact the area Grievance Officer of UIDAI for the same. As you have not given your area I will list the 3 contact numbers of the Grievance officers of UIDAI
      1 Hyderabad 040-23119266
      2 Chandigarh 0172-2711947
      3 Bangalore 080-22340864
      You may contact them and express your grievance. I assume that all people of your village have not received the enrolment slips. So I would request you to contact them and thereby help your whole village.

  68. Hi Vijay,
    This is a really nice and informative post. Thanks a lot for this useful information and appreciate the effort you would have spent in bringing things to a single board.
    After reading your post I went on to the e-Aadhaar site to download my Aadhaar card as a soft-copy (I already have my Aadhaar card) but unfortunately, after many retries I am not receiving the OTP. Though one time I got lucky enough to receive an SMS having the OTP, but the moment I entered/used the pin my session expired and the same waiting process started all over again. By the time of writing this comments to your post, I had already tried generating the OTP approximately 5-7 times; all effort in vain.
    I know that Md Abdul reported a similar problem earlier and to whom you mentioned that probably he might either have changed his mobile number or had given a different number at the time of registration. But for me, as I was lucky enough to receive an OTP once in my 7 tries so providing incorrect number at time or registration or have change my number would not be the cases.
    Would appreciate if you could help me out of this fix and I would need my Aadhaar card to register for HPCL Gas Co.
    Looking forward to hearing from you and thanks in advance.
