Accha one more thing, if you are going for passport,  don't pay for Passport cover from TCS guys in there. It's the worst quality product.

I don't know if anyone can deny accepting the pvc card. Aadhaar is just an id number, and you can print and keep as many copies as you want, color or black and white. It's all treated on par. Paper, pvc card, they're all the same.

Even better, go with digilocker.

If you want paper aadhar then do minor change something in your address like road no to road no - or just change lower to UPPER or just first letter Upper 

Due to which it would be considered as some change and they will send you paper aadhar in 1-2  months

They don't send anything even after paid changes.

Aadhaar PVC Card ordered online is of good quality, as thick as a credit card. It comes with addition security features such as:

1. Tamper proof QR Code

2. Hologram

3. Micro text

4. Ghost image

5. Issue Date & Print Date

6. Guilloche Pattern

7. Embossed Aadhaar Logo

After seeing my PVC aadhaar card, my colleagues ordered for themselves too! 

One more thing, Aadhaar is biometric based identification, so if establishments have access to aadhaar system , then all you need is just aadhaar number and / or fingerprint verify your identity. Personally I have used back & white xerox copy of aadhaar to apply for credit cards, bank account, etc.

Accepted Aadhars:

1. The Long one which we receive in post when a new aadhar is issued or any correction done.

2. PVC card ordered from aadhar website (Hologram, Ghost image etc)

3. Printed Color copy of e-aadhar with Signature field showing as Signature Verified.

4. Aadhar from DigiLocker.

In all the above cases, alterations are not possible. So the govt/organisations require these form of Aadhars.

Non Authentic Form of Aadhars:

1. PVC aadhar printed from eaadhar from Local shops

2. ID Card size lamination card printed from eaadhar from Local shops

3. Printed Color/BW copy of e-aadhar with Signature field showing as Signature Not Verified

The above form of aadhar may not be the authentic ones as there is a possibility of alterations in the actual details in aadhar.

There's no original Aadhaar. It's a digital identity number which you can duplicate tons of times as PDF prints or PVC orders.

I haven't had or used a Physical Aadhaar in years as linking everything to it is a privacy nightmare & so is giving it everywhere for verification.

Any place that asks gets "I haven't created my Aadhaar yet" & I just give them the voter ID which is a valid doc mandated by law. The only exceptions are those govt related places built on top of mandatory Aadhaar link like PAN etc.
