Scanning the Fingerprints: Applicants have to provide the fingerprints of all 10 fingers. The prints are stored in the government database. This is the first and most important step in creating a unique ID.
IRIS Scanning: This is another step towards creating a unique and perfect ID for an individual. This process is conducted at the Aadhaar centre just after the fingerprint scanning.
Photograph: Government officials do not accept stored photographs. They will take a passport size photo of the applicant through a webcam. This photo is then printed on the card.
Processing: This is the time taken in collecting and linking all the biometric and physical data to each other. It takes around 90 days to create and dispatch an Aadhaar card. Applicants can also track their card status on the UIDAI website. This can be done through the enrolment number provided by the Aadhaar centre
