Also a vital proof of identity, it can come handy anywhere and anytime.
So, in case you face any issues concerning your Aadhaar application or update request, you should get them resolved on time.
Here's how you can register complaints via different methods.
Email: You can write an e-mail to the UIDAI at email@example.com.
These e-mails are first examined by UIDAI officials and then forwarded to concerned Regional Office/Section.
Ultimately, the grievance is disposed by replying to the complainant over e-mail, under intimation to the grievance cell.
Telephone: You can also contact UIDAI to place your queries/complaints at its toll free number 1947.
Further, you can place your complaints by sending a physical hard-copy of complaint to the UIDAI headquarters or regional offices.
Under this method, grievances are solved by replying directly to the complainant under intimation to the grievance cell.

Fill up the digital form with the required details such as your enrolment ID, name, mobile number and email ID.
Select the category of complaint and enter the description of your complaint.
Finally, enter Captcha code and click on 'Submit' button.
In order to check the status of your complaint, log back on the UIDAI portal. Then, go to 'Contact & Support' drop down menu and click on 'Check Complaint Status' link. Finally, enter your complaint ID, the screen-displayed captcha code, and click on 'Check status.'
Post the September 26, 2018 Supreme Court verdict relating to authentication of Aadhaar, there has been much confusion with respect to services where Aadhaar is mandatory and where not.
Aadhaar is no longer mandatory for services such as opening bank accounts, telecom services, and school admissions/entrance tests.
However, it is still necessary for availing government welfare-schemes and filing I-T returns (if PAN isn't used).
