2. Provide all mandatory documents
You need to submit specific documents approved by the UIDAI to enroll under Aadhaar. Therefore, you should carry copies and the originals of all these documents when you visit the enrollment centre for authentication.
If you aren’t sure which documents to carry, worry not! We will be discussing those details right after the application procedure.
3. Visit the enrollment centre for biometric identification
Once you reach the enrollment centre, UIDAI officials will verify your documents, and this process will be followed by a collection of biometric details for your NRI Aadhaar card. It involves the following steps –
Step 1: All 10 of your fingers will be scanned, and the fingerprint data will be stored in the government’s database.
Step 2: Next, the official will take a scan of the irises of both your eyes.
Step 3: Finally, they will click a passport-sized photo of yours through a webcam. The picture will be printed on your Aadhaar card, unlike that in other ID documents where you provide a picture.
All of these data together help generate a unique ID, which is why no two Aadhaar can be identical. This makes this document such a reliable and widely accepted ID proof.
After completing this process, authorities will link your demographic and biometric information to generate your Aadhaar and deliver the hard copy to your address.
