Aadhaar Card: Step wise process of verifying Email ID & Mobile number

New Delhi: Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) provides details like mobile number and email registered with Aadhaar card.

Be it filing your income tax return (ITR) or submitting your application for a PAN(Permanent Account Number), the 12-digit identity number of your Aadhar card based on biometrics data is quoted mandatorily under the latest rules.

Verify email/mobile number on Aadhar – Know how?

Step 1: One of the ways to access the ‘Verify Email/Mobile Number’ tool is by visiting the UIDAI website homepage and clicking on a link by the same name on right hand side (second link in third column top in the image above).


Step 2: On the right side of the page, under Aadhar Services, click “Verify Email/ Mobile Number” which will direct you to the page:


Click the ‘Get One Time Password’ button. OTP or one-time password is the password you receive on your mobile number for submitting a verification request. This OTP is sent to the email address registered with your Aadhaar.

Step 3: The online tool displays a message saying: “The OTP is sent to your registered Email ID. Check your Email ID.”
Go to your inbox – of the email account you want to verify – and look for an email containing the OTP.

Enter the OTP received on email in the field on the right hand side of the page and click on ‘Verify OTP’. All letters to be filled are case sensitive, which means uppercase and lowercase letters count as different characters, according to the UIDAI website. For example, letters ‘h’ and ‘H’ are counted as different characters in the OTP.

In case of valid entries, the tool displays the message: “Congratulation! The Email ID matches with our records!”

In case your mobile number is not registered with your Aadhaar, visit the nearest Permanent Aadhaar Centre (PAC), it adds.
