Documents needed for Aadhaar card

While applying for Aadhar Card you must have necessary documents. As aadhar card is a very important document, for the sake of enrollment and registration, you need to provide two types of proofs. The first one is the document that proves your identity and second one ought to prove your address. Both address proof and identity proof have to be authentic documents, which are verified by the government.



Address proof can be submitted in the form of following documents:


All those applicants who do not have any of the above documents can take the help of introducers to get the Aadhaar card.

    Hi Sunita,

    Submitting someone else electricity bill as a address proof won’t be accepted. If you have college ID card of the same city or LPG Gas connection or Bank account of same city might help.

    yes, Subhra, you can. For you, passport is POI and proof of DOB, bank statement is POA.
    For your wife, Passport is POI and Proof of DOB. If the passport also has spouse name endorsed, then it is proof of relationship to you.
    Your son’s BC is POI, Proof of DOB and proof of relationship.
