Curious about Aadhar

Can I have multiple Aadhaar cards with the same details?

No, it is not possible or permissible to have multiple Aadhaar cards with the same details. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), which issues Aadhaar cards, ensures that each individual is assigned only one unique Aadhaar number. The purpose of Aadhaar is to provide a unique identification number to every resident of India, and having multiple Aadhaar cards would defeat that purpose.

If you already have an Aadhaar card, it is important to use that Aadhaar number for all official purposes and avoid applying for another one. If you have any concerns or need to update your existing Aadhaar card details, you can visit the nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Center or use the online SelfService Update Portal (SSUP) provided by UIDAI to make the necessary changes.
