Aadhaar issuing body Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) allows individuals to verify their Aadhaar both online and offline.

To verify offline, individuals will have to scan the QR code on the e-Aadhaar, Aadhaar card, or Aadhaar PVC. The UIDAI’s digitally signed secure QR code will provide biographic details, including name, gender, date of birth, address, and a photograph of the Aadhaar holder.
