Aadhaar Seva Kendra

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has set up exclusive ‘Aadhaar Seva Kendra’ or ASK as a single stop destination for all Aadhaar services for the residents. The ASK will offer dedicated Aadhaar enrolment and update services to residents in a state-of-the-art environment.

In the first phase of the Aadhaar Seva Kendra project, UIDAI plans to set up 114 Aadhaar Seva Kendra across 53 cities in India. These include dedicated centres in all metro cities, all state capitals and Union Territories. The ASK will run along with over 35,000 Aadhaar Kendra already being run by banks, post offices, BSNL and state governments.

  • Download & Print Aadhaar

These services are available for any resident of India (including NRIs) at any Aadhaar Seva Kendra across the country.

Online appointment for Aadhaar Services

Along with the Aadhaar Seva Kendra project, UIDAI launched the online appointment booking facility for residents. All UIDAI-run Aadhaar Seva Kendra follow the online appointment system where any resident can book an appointment for Aadhaar enrolment or update at any convenient ASK.

Any resident can book an appointment for themselves or a family member from https://appointments.uidai.gov.in/bookappointment.aspx . This is a free of cost service where a resident does not require Aadhaar registered mobile number. However, one resident can book a maximum of 4 appointments in a month.

Other Aadhaar Kendras available in Banks, Post offices, State Government offices and BSNL Centres are also being on-boarded to the Online Appointment System.
