Aadhaar Card Documents List 2015

Firstly, its not Aadhar card but actually Aadhaar card. Notice the extra ‘a’ in the name.

It’s been four years since I first shared the registration process for Aadhaar card. In these four years I have received 1000+ comments across multiple Aadhaar card posts asking multiple questions around aadhaar card centers, documents and the process. Though its been a while, a lot of people still struggle with registering for this process specially with the issue of opening and closing of centers! This post aims at sharing the latest list of valid aadhaar card documents accepted for registration. Not much has changed from the past but this is my attempting to keep the content current.
