You can only download a digital copy of your Aadhaar card using your registered mobile number. The UIDAI or Unique Identification Authority of India enables Aadhaar holders to download a digital copy of the Aadhaar card using their registered mobile number, the issuer of the 12-digit personal identification number under the Aadhaar programme said on Twitter. This is the mobile number of an Aadhaar holder registered with the UIDAI database. However, such users can order a reprint of their Aadhaar card online through the UIDAI's website - uidai.gov.in.

How to reprint Aadhaar card
The UIDAI - the issuer of the 12-digit Unique Identity Number as well as Aadhaar personal identification card - provides a paid service that enables Aadhaar holders to request a reprint online.
The reprinted Aadhaar letter is sent to the applicant through Speed Post against a fee of Rs 50 (inclusive of GST and postal charges), according to the UIDAI website.
The reprinted Aadhaar letter is handed over to India Post within five working days for delivery to the applicant's registered address, according to the UIDAI.
The UIDAI portal provides an option for those not having a mobile number registered with Aadhaar to also order a reprint online. In such a case, a reprint can be ordered through a non-registered mobile number. However, the preview of Aadhaar details is not available in an order placed with an alternative, non-registered mobile number, according to the UIDAI.
