how to validate aadhaar card digital signature

Hello lovely readers. Today we will talk about Aadhaar Card Digital Signature and learn how to download your Aadhaar Card and validate the digital signature given in it. Earlier there was a saying that it is very important to have bread, cloth, and a house for everyone, but today it has become very important to have an Aadhaar card along with bread, cloth, and a house. Because today whether it is the private sector or government, the Aadhaar card must be submitted in the documentation of any work everywhere in the sector.

That’s why today every Indian makes his Aadhaar card and as you know, when you go anywhere and get your Aadhaar card made, you get a registration slip (printout) at the same time and a unique enrollment id with your personal information on the same slip. And date & time is also printed. A few days after your Aadhaar card registration, your Aadhaar card is posted to your home address but sometimes it also happens that your Aadhaar card is not able to arrive at your home address.

Apart from this, you have an Aadhaar card but it gets spoiled a bit due to some reasons and you want a new Aadhaar card again, then in both such conditions, you have to download the Aadhaar card from the internet by yourself. After downloading an Aadhaar card from the internet, you will have to verify the digital signature present in that Aadhaar card yourself.

Which Software to Use to Validate Aadhaar Card Digital Signature?

When you download the Aadhaar card, it is downloaded in PDF format, and therefore to open that Aadhaar card PDF file, you must have PDF reader software on the computer or phone.

Mostly all computer users have an Adobe PDF reader to read (open) PDF files but I would suggest that if you want to verify the Aadhaar card digital signature without any problem (error) then you can use Acrobat Reader DC software.

This is also the application of Adobe company, you can download it by visiting the official website. It is software of about 100MB – 120MB i.e. you will not take much time to download and install it.

Adobe PDF Reader and Acrobat Reader DC both have the same process of validating the Aadhaar card digital signature, but I have seen that sometimes digital signature is not verified in Adobe PDF reader, so you use Acrobat Reader DC.
