If your Aadhaar number is active, the website will confirm it by stating that your Aadhaar number exists.
Even though the judgement on the constitutional validity of Aadhaar is pending with the Supreme Court, it is still a crucial document for accessing various services like opening a new bank account or filing your income tax return (ITR).

Now, before you can use your 12-digit biometric details, you need to make sure your Aadhaar number is active and that the details available on your Aadhaar card match those available in the Unique Identification Authority of India's (UIDAI) database.

The process of verifying your Aadhaar card is quite simple and can be done online via the UIDAI's website.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to verify your Aadhaar card:
1. Visit UIDAI's website: www.uidai.gov.in
UIDAI-Website

2. On the website, under the head 'Aadhaar Services', click on 'Verify Aadhaar Number'. You will be redirected to a new page.
Verify

3. On that page, you will be required to enter your 12-digit Aadhaar number and the captcha code.
Details

If your Aadhaar number is active, the website will confirm it by stating that your Aadhaar number exists. The website will also show other details, i.e., under which age band you fall, gender, state in which you reside, and the last three digits of your mobile number.

On the other hand, if you are unable to verify your Aadhaar number despite repeated attempts, the website will show your Aadhaar number does not exist. In that case, you will have to visit the nearest enrolment centre along with the supporting documents. Click here to know the list of documents you can submit as proof of identity and proof of address.

Your biometrics may be re-verified and entered into UIDAI's database again. This updation of your biometrics and details in Aadhaar database will cost you Rs 25 plus GST at 18 per cent.
