Download e-Aadhaar Card online through the official portal for UIDAI. Once you have applied the for the aadhaar card, you can check the aadhaar card application status online.
The e-Aadhaar card can be used as a proof temporarily until you receive the original Aadhaar card by post to your registered postal address.
Problem downloading e-Aadhaar Card
If you are not able to download the e-Aadhaar Card online, you may want to check the aadhaar card application status. If the message received on checking the status is “Congratulations ! Your Aadhaar has been successfully generated.You may now download the e-Aadhaar from the Resident Portal.”, the problem has to be something else like a temporary website problem. You may want to try again later.
Other possibility is that the Aadhaar card is not ready yet, once the aadhaar card is ready a message is received on the registered mobile number that the aadhaar card is ready and can be viewed / downloaded online. If you have not received such message, the Aadhaar card is probably not ready yet.
Another message online I have seen while downloading the e-aadhaar card online is: “Sorry, The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. Please try again later.UIDAI”. So you may want to try again later.
