    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I had posed a question to you about 2 weeks ago if it is possible for a NRI to get an AADHAR card without having to incur the expense of coming to India just for this purpose. May I have a reply if this is possible ?

    Why do you need Aadhar when you don’t have any intention to back to India. You can apply or Aadhar once you back from your destination countries

      Minna, the NRI has NRO & FCNR accounts in India from where he may need to withdraw money from.
      The government should clarify that an NRI can operate his account in India freely without an Aadhaar card.

    As far as I know, one must be physically present in India at any AADHAR center as their finger prints, photo capturing and eye scanning has to be done as part of enrollment process to issue the AADHAR card and that is the reason AADHAR can not be issued online.

    The aadhar card is sent to applicant’s address. Will NRI get his card at his foreign address?

    Else, if you leave India after applying, it shall go back to authorities as undelivered!!!!!
