Did you know that you can order a print or reprint of your Aadhaar card online? The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), which manages the Aadhaar biometric ID programme, provides a range of services online. One such service enables an Aadhaar-registered person to order a printed copy of the Aadhaar card online. In a Twitter post, the UIDAI said it provides each Aadhaar reprint at Rs 50, and delivers it at the bearer’s doorstep through speed post. One can apply for an Aadhaar print using the UIDAI portal uidai.gov.in or mobile app mAadhaar.

Who Can Order An Aadhaar Reprint?
Those already enrolled under the Aadhaar programme can apply for a print using MAadhaar.
(A user can apply for a reprint using any of the three IDs: the Unique Identity Number, the virtual ID and the enrolment ID)
Besides users whose mobile number is registered with the Aadhaar system, MAadhaar also allows those without an Aadhaar-registered mobile number to order a reprint.
(Payment can be made through a credit or debit card, net banking or Unified Payments Interface)
(The UIDAI engages with social media users from time to time to spread awareness about Aadhaar-related services)
You can #OrderAadhaarReprint if your mobile number is not registered in Aadhaar. However, using this service does not mean that the new mobile number you give will get registered in your Aadhaar. pic.twitter.com/MOMbnRnLK6
