The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has launched a service to order Aadhaar Card online. An Aadhaar holder can order a PVC card for himself or his family members by paying Rs 50 for each card. The polyvinyl chloride (PVC) Aadhaar card was introduced in October this year. It looks like a debit or credit card and fits in a wallet easily.

“Loaded with the latest security features, your Aadhaar is now more durable, convenient to carry, instantly verifiable offline,” the UIDAI had described the PVC Aadhaar Card.

In case you do not have your mobile number registered with Aadhaar then you can use any non-registered or alternate mobile number to place the order. One person can also use a single mobile number to order the Aadhaar PVC cards for everyone in the family.

“You can use any mobile number to receive OTP for authentication, regardless of the registered mobile number in your Aadhaar. So, one person can order Aadhaar PVC cards online for the whole family. Follow the link to order now,” the UIDAI said in a tweet.

Here’s how you can order a PVC Aadhaar card online:

Step 1: Visit

Step 2: Type in your Aadhaar details

Step 3: Fill in a registered or alternate mobile number and click on the ‘send OTP’ option

NOTE: In case of a registered mobile number, the user can preview the Aadhaar PVC Card before placing the order. One can also use the m-Aadhaar mobile application to get a Time-Based-One-Time-Password (TOTP) and place the order.

Step 4: Submit the OTP, make the payment of Rs. 50 for each card and your PVC Aadhaar card will be ordered.
