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..’
) 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.
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
AADHAAR CARD, CARD FOR ALL INDIANS
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.
