Now, Book your UID appointments online!

Applying for Unique Identification Card (UID) just got easier – Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has launched a new online service where citizens will be able to book appointments for UID card.

This is really going to help lakhs of users across the country – Currently, users have to travel either to General Post Office or a UID center in their area and book appointments. However, majority of them do not know the addresses or the numbers of UID centers.

Although, the news says, it is available only in Chandigarh currently, it seems that more states and centers are being added constantly. Many towns / cities in Maharashtra, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh and Delhi are listed.

If you are one of the states above, head to http://appointments.uidai.gov.in/ and book a appointment online as per your convenience. If your area is not listed, you may want to wait for some more time as UIDAI is adding new states and cities continuously.

UIDAI appointment

The response to UID registrations till now has been quite luke-warm at best and one of the main reasons has been accessibility to UID centers. But with this new initiative, things may change. It is important though that online appointments should be extended to more cities faster!

On a side note - I fail to understand why Government agencies can’t design user friendly & good looking forms. Every Government registration form I have seen are so badly designed that sometimes they are nearly un-usable. It is not rocket science – why they can’t do it…God only knows! And one more thing – visit the site and you will see that it has been optimized for 1366X768 resolution. Who in the hell uses that resolution and why would you design it for just a tiny percentage of people is just beyond me…

This online appointment should have been launched earlier itself - But better late than never!  what say?

  1. i want appoint for enrolment for addhar card ,pune , Ramwad ,pl call me 9673320455

  2. it is absolutely non-sense having an appointment on line, last 3 days i have trying to book an appointment but all the slots are getting packed even at 12:15 midnight. and it does not allow to lock beyond 30 days. and not only 1 location but all the four locations in MUMBAI urban.

  3. I have been trying for an appointment since 2 weeks at Vashi sec17 Navi Mmbai but I cant get an appointment , According to the online booking appointment can’t exceed 30 days, but appointments are booked upto 18th of March i:e more then 30 days. How is this possible ? Do I have to bribe the officials sitting there?

    • I went straight to my center in Vashi and argued about the appointments being full and they immediately accepted my form and got myself registered.

    They have not started Appointments cause UIDAI can't handle the crowd already in almost every place enrollments are started. This appointment thing will be useful when intial rush is handled.

  21. Yes, I too don't understand why government websites are so badly designed. but as far as 1366×768 is concerned, as per statcounter global stats, that is the second most common resolution

  22. Nirmal Balachandran

    Pretty good move, they need to launch to for more places as well. Visiting the centers to get the appointment is hell of a task. On a side note, I feel this is one of the better designed sites from Govt. :)
