The Union government and even the State governments have made Aadhaar card mandatory to avail benefits of several government schemes. You will be deprived of the benefits during the coronavirus crisis if you have lost your Aadhaar card or misplaced somewhere. However, there is no reason for you to be worried. You can simply order Aadhaar reprint even if your mobile number is not registered in Aadhaar as the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has made provisions to order a reprint.
Taking to its Twitter handle, the UIDAI said, “You can order Aadhaar reprint 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.”Here is how you can order for your Aadhaar card reprint even if you don’t have registered mobile number with UIDAI:
- Visit the UIDAI website and select “Order Aadhaar Reprint.”
