The Unique Identification Authority of India, or UIDAI, has launched several services so that an Indian citizen faces minimal hassle while accessing something with their Aadhaar card information. This is because the 12-digit verifiable identification number, issued by the UIDAI for Indians, has become significant for performing several governmental and non-governmental work, most of which are important. With the authority’s ever-developing resolutions, services regarding the Aadhaar card is just a phone click away. The UIDAI has enabled residents of India to access their Aadhaar cards online. Updating Aadhaar information can also be done on the UIDAI website in an easy way.

However, internet is something that has not reached every nook and corner of India even today. The government, for this, has announced a scheme whereby 4G internet connection will be provided to more than 7,200 villages. But that will take time till November 2023 to get completed. For those places without internet connection, the UIDAI has come up with an alternate solution. One can access Aadhaar services through a simple SMS now. 

For this, one does not have to log in to the UIDAI website or download the Aadhaar app. It is also not necessary for a user to have a smartphone to access services via SMS. It can be done through a simple mobile phone without internet connectivity and with basic features.

Aadhaar card holders can access a range of different services though this feature provided by UIDAI. These include Virtual ID generation, Virtual ID retrieval, Aadhaar lock service, Aadhaar unlock service, etc.

One can access this service by sending an SMS from his or her registered mobile number to the the hotline number 1947. Users may also note that OTP generation is a must to avail SMS locking and unlocking services to access Aadhaar features.
