Aadhaar has now become a mandatory document for many services, from operating a bank account to buying or using a SIM or to filing income tax returns. It is necessary to have an Aadhaar, and all the details mentioned in it must be correct. You need to head to an enrolment center to get it done. However, it is not easy to find the aadhaar center in your area; UIDAI has made it easy to find one. Several banks and post offices are acting as Aadhaar centers across the country. Here are a few quick steps to find one online.
How to Find the Nearest Aadhaar Post Offices or Banks
To find banks and post offices acting as Aadhaar enrolment centers, go to the UIDAI web page. Here, you can find the nearest bank or post office operating as Aadhaar center by state, pin code, or keywords.
To find the nearest enrolment center by state, select the state using the drop-down menu and choose your District, Sub District, or VTC (Village Town City) in the drop-down menus. Enter the captcha code and then click on the Search button. You will then be presented with a list of post offices and banks acting as Aadhaar centers near you.
A more natural way, of course, would be to use your area pin code. To do that, click on the Pin-Code button on the UIDAI page, and enter the area code and captcha code and click on Search. This will also show you the list of banks and post offices where you can enroll for Aadhaar.
The last option is to do so “search by keywords,” with the name of your city or a specific area. Click on the Search button, make sure you spell the name of the city correctly, and enter the verification code. This step will, again, present a list of banks and post offices that are providing Aadhaar enrolment and updation services.
The list of centers also shows whether it is a permanent enrolment center or a temporary camp.
