✓ Home Loan from ₹5 Lakhs To ₹5 Cr ✓ Multiple Lending Partners ✓ Attractive Interest Rates

Aadhaar cards have emerged as the primary document demonstrating proof of identity of an individual in India. It is essential to have an Aadhaar card, and while it is not mandatory, having an authorised Aadhaar card does make processes significantly faster and easier.

An Aadhaar card is also helpful when you need to avail services. For instance, you could feel the need to apply for a personal loan to fulfil your lifelong goals and ambitions.

For such purposes and others, you can apply for a personal loan on Finserv MARKETS, where you can get up to Rs. 25 Lakhs and repay it over a flexible repayment tenure ranging from 1 to 5 years.

However, to avail of such services from a range of banks and non-banking financial institutions (NBFCs), you will be required to offer your Aadhaar card as proof of identity and residence. To avail of an Aadhaar card, you will be required to submit a range of documents. The Aadhaar documents list spans four major categories, and under it, you can submit any document that serves the purpose. Read on below to learn the Aadhaar card documents you are required to submit in order to avail an Aadhaar card and access the services.

When do you Submit Documents for your Aadhaar Card

The list of supporting documents for Aadhaar has been specified by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). These documents are to be kept in hand for the first time you apply for an Aadhaar card. The documents’ original copies need to be furnished, and the authorised personnel will scan them and return the originals to you.

The Aadhaar supporting documents also need to be furnished when you require any changes to be made to your Aadhaar card. For instance, if you have changed addresses or phone numbers, it is imperative to have these details updated on your Aadhaar card.

Since your registered mobile number is added on the Aadhaar card, you will receive notifications or alerts pertaining to your Aadhaar card there. For instance, if you generate a virtual Aadhaar ID, the generated ID will be sent to your registered mobile number. If that number has not been updated, your VID could fall into the wrong hands and be used for fraudulent purposes. To avoid such an eventuality, make sure to update your details as soon as the details listed on your Aadhaar card change.

As mentioned below, the documents needed for the Aadhaar card span four categories. These include:

  • Documents demonstrating proof of identity
