The Applicant would be required to undergo Aadhaar authentication at the time of verification of details at the registration office. An Applicant not yet enrolled for Aadhaar is required to apply for Aadhaar enrolment in case he is entitled to obtain an Aadhaar number as per Section 3 of Aadhaar Act. Such an Applicant may visit any Aadhaar enrolment center as available onwww.uidai.gov.in, to get enrolled for Aadhaar.

The registration of deed, subject to other requirements would be accepted with such Enrolment ID mentioned on the same.

          He said that once Aadhaar is assigned to such applicants they would be required to provide the Aadhaar number online and also undergo Aadhaar authentication at the registration office or designated offices, as the case may be. In case an Aadhaar enrolment facility is not available at a convenient designated registration office or other offices, the applicant should submit a request for Aadhaar enrolment at such designated registration office. The registration office or designated offices would issue a request number to such an Applicant. This request number should be entered by the applicant at the time of registration of the deed. Such an Applicant is required to undergo Aadhaar enrolment once the facility becomes available or at a nearby Aadhaar enrolment centre and thereafter provide the 28 digit Enrolment ID online. Once the Aadhaar number is assigned, the Applicant is required to provide the Aadhaar number online and undergo Aadhaar authentication at the registration office or designated offices either prior or post registration of the deed, as the case may be.

          The application for Aadhaar enrolment should be made not later than six months from the date of registration of the deed. An Applicant, who is entitled to registration of deed under the provisions of the Registration Act, 1908, but not for Aadhaar, would make an application for Aadhaar enrolment as soon as he becomes so eligible.
