The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has launched the new mAadhaar app which can be downloaded on both Android and iOS smartphones. UIDAI has advised users to uninstall the older version of the app and install the new one.
The new app allows you to download your Aadhaar card, offline eKYC, update your address and request for an address validation letter among other things. You can also order a reprint of your Aadhaar in your mAadhaar app.
