The new Aadhaar PVC card comes with enhanced security features and is more convenient to carry. The security features include QR code with photograph and demographic details, hologram, micro text, ghost image, issue, and print date, and embossed Aadhaar logo. The ATM or debit card-sized Aadhaar PVC card can be obtained at a nominal price of ₹50. It is easy to carry as it conveniently fits in your wallet.
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has made provisions for Aadhaar cardholders to order the new Aadhaar PVC card even if your mobile number is not registered in Aadhaar. In a tweet, UIDAI said, “Don’t have your mobile number registered to your Aadhaar? Don’t worry, you can use any mobile number to receive OTP for authentication of your Aadhaar PVC order.”
