Aadhaar Card Enrollment Rejected?

Main Reason Behind Rejection of Aadhaar

Mostly many people in India have messed up and don’t remember if they have been earlier enrolled for Aadhaar Card or not. And because they have not received their Aadhaar Card they go to Aadhaar Center and they get their self re-enroll, but this is not the solution to this problem.

A person can enroll for Aadhaar Card only once and once you have been issued with 12 digit Aadhaar, even if you try to enroll yourself any number of times your application will always get rejected. If the first application is valid and all documents have been furnished then it will be accepted and you will be issued with 12 digit Aadhaar Number, however, you will also get your Aadhaar Card Letter delivered to your address via India Post.

On the Aadhaar Card Application form, you will also find a declaration stating if already enrolled don’t enroll again, check out the below screenshot of the Aadhaar Card form where they have printed declaration.
