You need to give your name, the mobile number or email address registered with Aadhaar and the security code as displayed on the form. After entering the details, click on 'Send One Time Password' to proceed. Upon a successful entry, the UIDAI facility sends an OTP to the registered mobile number or email address. Enter this OTP and click on 'Verify OTP'. At the end of a successful entry, the UIDAI tool sends the Aadhaar number (UID) to the user. Users also get an option of downloading the Aadhaar card in the digital form.

The 'Receive Your Lost UID/EID' tool also enables users to retrieve their Aadhaar enrolment number, also known as EID or enrolment ID.
