How to file Aadhaar related complaints

Aadhaar is an important document to conduct our day-to-day financial business. From seeking subsidy from the government to filing income tax return (ITR) or applying for PAN, you need to provide your Aadhaar number.

Now, if you are facing a problem at the enrolment centre regarding your Aadhaar updation or you have applied for Aadhaar but haven’t received the same, then you can file a complaint for the same on the UIDAI‘s (Unique Identification Authority of India) website.

If the complaint is related to the operator and/or enrolment agency, then you don’t have to mandatorily provide your enrolment ID at the time of filing the complaint. However, if the complaint is regarding non-generation of Aadhaar, then you will have to provide the enrolment ID at the time of filing complaint on the website.
