Eaadhaar.uidai.gov.in download: Is the downloaded Aadhaar or e-Aadhaar a valid proof of identity? What if somebody refuses to accept the downloaded Aadhaar and insists for the hard copy issued only by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI)?
Well, know here that the downloaded Aadhaar or e-Aadhaar is a legally valid proof of identity and nobody can decline to take it as an identity proof. The document is valid under Section 4(3) of the Aadhaar Act, 2016, read together with regulation 15(1) of the Aadhaar (Enrolment and Update) Regulations 2016. So a soft copy or a printed copy of Aadhaar is a valid legal proof of your identity.
Section 4(3) of the Aadhaar Act, 2016 - "Every Aadhaar number holder to establish his identity, may voluntarily use his Aadhaar number in physical or electronic form by way of authentication or offline verification, or in such other form as may be notified, in such manner as may be specified by regulations."
In case if anybody declines to accept it as a valid proof, you can confront him with the notification published on the Unique UIDAI website. See the notification here - https://uidai.gov.in/images/uidai_om_on_e_aadhaar_validity.pdf.
The UIDAI had to issue this notification after it started receiving complaints from individuals and organisations seeking validity of downloaded or e-Aadhaar.
The UIDAI is a statutory authority under Section 11 of the Aadhaar (targeted delivery of financial and other subsidies, benefits and services) Act, 2016 which came into force on 12 September 2016. The authority is mandated to issue a 12 digit Unique Identification number call ed the Aadhaar number to the residents based on demographioc and biuometric information submitted by them to the UIDAI at the time of enrollment.
