Aadhaar card is now one of the most important documents in the country. It is required to avail several services. But there is always a chance of people losing their Aadhaar card or even forgetting their Aadhaar number. If you have also lost your Aadhaar card or you don't remember your Aadhaar number, you can still retrieve your Aadhaar easily in minutes.

The existing Aaadhar cardholders and applicants who have recently enrolled can submit their request for lost Aadhaar UID/EID retrieval on the UIDAI website. In order to retrieve your lost Aadhaar number, you need your mobile number or email id to be registered in Aadhaar record. 

The Aadhaar cardholders should know that no documents are required to retrieve lost Aadhar number or EID. You are only required to provide contact details that were registered with Aadhaar during the enrolment, i.e., mobile number or email address. Also, the UIDAI self-service portal can be accessed free of cost. This means you don’t need to pay anything for EID or UID retrieval.
