Aadhaar card is one of the most crucial identity verification document in our country
An Aadhaar card is one of the most crucial identity verification document in our country required for opening a bank account to filing income tax returns to availing of social benefits. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) provides various online and offline services for Aadhaar cardholders like updating address, biometrics, photo and mobile numbers. And from time to time, it keeps people informed about the services through its official Twitter handle @UIDAI.
Recently, the UIDAI has discontinued the Order Aadhaar Reprint service. This information was shared by the Aadhaar Help Centre via its Twitter handle in response to a customer's query. Tagging UIDAI Bhavesh Patel had enquired about the option of the Aadhaar reprint not visible on the UIDAI's website.
Replying to the user, Aadhaar Help Centre tweeted," Dear Resident, Order Aadhaar Reprint service has been discontinued, you can order Aadhaar PVC card online, instead. You can also take a print of your e-Aadhaar if you wish to keep it in a flexible paper format."
@UIDAI can I reprint my aadhar letter? I don't see any option in website.— Bhavesh Patel (@bpatel_04) May 17, 2021
