Aadhaar card status
In this post we will talk about how to check the Aadhaar card status, you can check it either online or offline by phone through SMS. Both of these options to check Aadhaar card status are explained below for your convenience.
Please note: As per the UIDAI guidelines, it can take about 3 months (90 days) to receive Aadhaar card after you have enrolled at Aadhaar card center for your Aadhaar card (UID).
If you have already applied for Aadhaar card before April 01, 2012 and not yet received/got your Aadhaar card, click here: Aadhaar Card Not Received? You may have to re-apply.
Once your Aadhaar card is processed successfully, next you will receive the acknowledgment SMS to your registered mobile phone and/or on your registered email address that you have to provide at the time of registration. After you receive the acknowledgment, you can check AADHAR card status online as well as download duplicate Aadhaar card online.
You need not wait for the original Aadhaar card to be delivered at home, as the duplicate Aadhaar card has same validity as the original one.

If you have not received any communication from UIDAI about your Aadhaar card processing, you can still check your Aadhaar card application status online. To check the Aadhaar card status online, you will need the acknowledgment slip that was given to you when you went to the Aadhaar card center for registration.
In the acknowledgment slip, look for these 2 items on the top:
- 14 digit enrollment number
- 14 digit date and time of enrollment
These 28 digits form your temporary enrollment identity (EID). Enter these 2 items in the corresponding boxes in the Aadhaar card status check page here.
To check your Aadhaar card status by phone, send an SMS as “UID STATUS <14 digit enrolment number>” (e.g. UID STATUS 12345678901234) to 51969. If your Aadhaar card is generated and the SMS is sent from the registered mobile phone number then you will receive the Aadhaar card number, otherwise, only the current Aadhaar card status will be communicated.
