AADHAAR Card Documents Requirement

UIDAI accepts several "Proof of Identity", "Proof of Address" and "Proof of Date of Birth" documents for AADHAAR card. Below you will find a nationally valid list of supported AADHAAR card documents. You will need to carry the original AADHAAR card documents to the AADHAAR card center for cross verification. Your original documents will be returned back to you immediately after verification with corresponding xerox copies at the center.

You will need just 1 document for "Proof of Identity", 1 document for "Proof of Address" and 1 document for "Proof of Date of Birth". Please take 1 xerox copy of each of the supporting AADHAAR card documents you are submitting for AADHAAR card and submit it along with the AADHAAR card application form.

Also note that you are not required to carry your photographs, as your picture will be taken right at the AADHAAR card center (the entire process is free of cost).

Small kids may not have any address proof; in that case submit your own address proof document copy for them.

I am an NRI however wish to apply for an Aadhar card. As an NRI all of my proofs will be UK based, e.g. UK water/electricity bill showing a UK address, UK drivers licence etc. My question is are such overseas documents acceptable? Secondly is there a remote application process, e.g. submission of documents online etc as opposed to a physical presence process. Thirdly is there any other form of official Indian identification I could obtain. For instance if I wanted to purchase an Indian SIM card for my mobile I would need to produce evidence of ID so apart from and Aadhar card is there anything that I could apply for. Thank you
