UIDAI’s Check Aadhaar Status service allows you to track the real-time status of your service request. But the process of tracking Aadhaar status is not the same for different types of Aadhaar requests. So according to your request type, below are the methods to check aadhaar status.

Check Aadhaar Status Online | New Enrollment or Updated Enrollment Center

If you have enrolled for Aadhaar or updated your Aadhaar through Seva Kendra, you can find the status of your request through the Aadhaar Status online facility.

Once enrolled for Aadhaar, generally, Aadhaar is generated within 1 to 3 months, but in rare cases, it may take longer than the estimated time or it may be completed earlier than the estimated time.

Similarly, any Aadhaar update request made through the Aadhaar Center may take up to 1 – 3 months to process.

So to be informed about the Aadhaar payment process or updates, the Check Aadhaar Status service has been enabled on the official UIDAI Aadhaar card portal.

By using the Check Aadhaar Card Status service on the UIDAI official website, residents who have enrolled for Aadhaar or updated Aadhaar through Seva Kendra can find out whether their Aadhaar has been generated or is still in process or updated.

But before proceeding further to check Aadhaar status online you should have your EID which will be printed on your Aadhaar Acknowledgment Slip/Resident Copy which was provided to you once you registered Aadhaar or Aadhaar Update Receipt in case of update.

Visit UIDAI official website to check Aadhaar status

Once you reach the UIDAI homepage, click on the Check Aadhaar Status section.

Once click on Check Aadhaar Status, the webpage will redirect to Check Aadhaar Status page

Check Aadhaar Status Page

On the Check Aadhaar Status page, you have to fill the form fields like 14 digit Enrollment ID (ENO) which you will get on your Acknowledgment Slip or Residence Copy and then mention the date and time of the Acknowledgment Slip (mentioning date and time is not mandatory). These 28 numbers together form your Temporary Enrollment ID (EID).

You can even enter SRN or URN

Aadhaar Status

On the next page, it will show you the status of your aadhaar whether it is created or in process, updated or rejected.

If your aadhaar is generated then you will see the message “Congratulations! Your aadhaar has been generated” as you can see in the above image and similarly if your aadhaar has been updated it will show your aadhaar has been updated.

If you try to enroll as a fresher despite having Aadhaar, you will see the status “This enrollment has been rejected as a duplicate. Please do not re-enroll and use your matched enrollment number displayed below to check your Aadhaar status. If the matching enrollment number is not displayed below, you can use the “Lost EID/UID Recovery” service on our website or call 1947 for more details.”

If your aadhaar is not approved yet, it will show the status “Your aadhaar application is in process”. So you have to check back after a few days to know the final status.
