Aadhar card and aadhaar number:
Aadhar card is the new government proof of identity. The UIDAI is precise and clear about this fact. They have mentioned in their website and in press that adhar card is a proof of identity not citizenship. So why is aadhaar card important?
The card indentifies each citizen using a 12-digit number called the aadhaar number. The specialty of the number is that it is unique. No two persons can have the same number. Similarly, one person cannot have tow adhar numbers.
Therefore, this when used in different subsidy scheme of government can help reduce corruption. Earlier the government officials used to steal the allotted budget my creating fake names that use the scheme. Now by making the UID card mandatory, one cannot make fake names.
Check aadhar card status:
One can check the status online from the official UIDAI website only. We advise all to not provide aadhaar number to any other website other than uidai.gov.in. Do not post you aadhaar number in the comment section below. This is for safety and security reason.
Now to check the status one needs his/her enrollment number and date and time of registration. This information is in the enrollment slip. Aadhar card status enquiry is not possible without this number. So if you have lost the slip then go to the official website to retrieve your EID.
EID is combination of enrollment number, date and time of registration. When you retrieve the number online then you will get this 28 digit EID. The first 14 digit of this number is the enrollment number. The last digits are date and time.
