Information on Aadhaar Customer Care/ Complaint Addressal

Having an Aadhar Card has become important in today’s times when the card serves as an identity proof, address proof and even proof of your date of birth. The Government has, therefore, created the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to enrol citizens for Aadhar Card, manage the database of Aadhar Card applicants and also to provide individuals with the necessary information relating to Aadhar. You can also make complaints to UIDAI or submit your feedback through Aadhar customer care which is maintained and managed by UIDAI. Let’s understand how –

Aadhar Card customer care number

UIDAI operates an Aadhar customer care which helps you give feedback, get answers to your queries or share your grievances with the authority. You can contact the Aadhar helpline anytime and any day whenever you need assistance. The details of the Aadhar customer care are as follows –

    You can call the toll-free number of UIDAI which is 1947 and speak to an Aadhar customer care executive for any queries or complaints.
