Authorized by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the Aadhaar card number comes in handy to individuals for a number of purposes.

Apart from availing services, people also take the help of an Aadhaar card as definitive proof of verification in their personal business. This can include employees, workers, domestic help, paying guests, tenants, etc.

While the Aadhaar Card is a convenient proof of verification to take from anyone, it is important to know that fake Aadhaar card rackets are on the rise across the country. Recently, police found 244 children trafficked using fake Aadhaar cards on one Bengaluru railway station. A few weeks ago, a fake Aadhaar card racket was busted by police in Haryana’s Gurugram. Fraudsters are able to easily create fake Aadhaar cards requiring using computer software in just 10 minutes and such fake IDs are reportedly sold for as less as Rs 500.

It is important to know that UIDAI provides a facility where people can check if the Aadhaar card they have or one that has been submitted to them is a genuine one or not. UIDAI mentions that “residents are using this service to verify the identity of their workers.”

Here’s how to use the facility provided on the UIDAI website:

Go to the official UIDAI resident website
Scroll down to “Aadhaar services”
Click on “Verify an Aadhaar number”
On the “Verify Aadhaar” page, enter the 12-digit Aadhaar (UID) number
Enter the captcha verification and click on the “Proceed to Verify” button
You will be shown by UIDAI if the Aadhaar number exists and information about the Aadhaar card holder - Age Band, Gender, State, and last three digits of the mobile number.
You can go to the UIDAI facility directly by clicking on this Verify Aadhaar direct link
