Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 20
For those still new to the entire concept of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), they just need to drop in one of the 23 Aadhaar enrolment centres operational in Chandigarh with identity, address and birth proof.

The Aadhaar numbers are randomly generated unique identification numbers issued after capturing biometric characteristics of an individual that is different from any other card, as it cannot be duplicated. Every person issued the card will be getting a 12-digit unique number that’s going to be amassed in the central database. The Tribune has jotted down a few steps that you might want to know about.


Just walk down to one of the Aadhaar enrolment centres to obtain an application form with proofs of identity, address and date of birth. Fill up the form that will have the details of your demographic information, including name, address, gender, date of birth and father’s address. The second stage of enrolment includes the applicant’s photograph, iris impression and fingerprints of both hands along with thumbprints are captured. Applicants will be then given a receipt of acknowledgement and can expect their Aadhaar cards to reach them within three months.

Documents required
