1. Visit the enrolment centre and carry valid Proof of Identity (POI) and proof of address and photocopies of the same.

2. Fill out the enrolment form correctly ensuring there's no mistake and mandatory fields are not left blank, record your biometrics and submit the documents.

3. Collect the acknowledgement slip which has your Enrolment ID. The turnaround time to get the Aadhaar card is 90 days. The card is sent by post to your registered address.

As per the UIDAI website, Photo ID cards like PAN card and Govt ID cards are permissible for identity proof. Address proof documents also include water - electricity - Landline telephone bills for the last three months.

However, if you do not have the listed identity proof and address proof there's a way out.

Certificate of Address with photo issued by MP or MLA /Gazetted Officer/Tehsildar on letterhead or by Village Panchayat head or its equivalent authority (for rural areas) is acceptable as valid address proof.

You can review the details you have provided and make corrections during enrolment itself. Providing a valid mobile number has now become mandatory.
