 Whether aadhaar card can be used for citizenship or date of birth?

  • New Aadhaar cards and PDF versions of the identity document have started including a more explicit disclaimer that they are “a proof of identity, not of citizenship or date of birth”, signalling to government departments and other organisations not to use it for those purposes.

  • Aadhaar card has never been proof of citizenship as foreign nationals are also eligible to obtain one if they have been living in India for 180 days.

  • The Election Commission of India explicitly accepts Aadhaar as a proof of date of birth for enrolling people to vote. 

  • These new clarifications, prominently printed on the document, may challenge such allowances.

Whether foreign nationals are eligible to obtain Aadhaar card?

  • A valid Indian Passport is mandatory as a Proof of Identity for NRI applicants

  • However, in case your address is not updated in your passport and you want to give your present address for your Aadhaar application.

  •  NRI can give any supporting documents acceptable to UIDAI as a proof of address.

  • Aadhaar Card enrollment is presently available to residents in India. 

  • OCI Cardholders who stay in India for a long time

(over 182 days in twelve months immediately preceding the date of application for enrolment) and have an Indian address can also enroll for Aadhaar Card in India.
