If you have not received any communication from UIDAI about your Aadhaar card processing, you can still check your Aadhaar card application status online.

In the acknowledgement slip, look for these 2 items on the top:
- 14 digit enrollment number
- 14 digit date and time of enrollment
These 28 digits form your temporary enrollment identity (EID). Enter these 2 items in the corresponding boxes in the Aadhaar card status check page here.

To check your Aadhaar card status by phone, send an SMS as “UID STATUS <14 digit enrolment number>” (e.g. UID STATUS 12345678901234) to 51969. If your Aadhaar card is generated and the SMS is sent from the registered mobile phone number then you will receive the Aadhaar card number, otherwise only the current Aadhaar card status will be communicated.
