Aadhaar Card Letter which you download from Online UIDAI Portal contains a digital signature, so due to the presence of e-sign on your Aadhaar, it doesn’t require a physical signature.
But sometimes on opening your Aadhaar Card PDF on your device, you may find that the digital signature which is there on your Aadhaar PDF is having a yellow-colored question mark and above that, you will also find a text stating validity unknown. So if you facing such issues in your Aadhaar then let me tell you that such Aadhaar with error validity unknown in print form would not be accepted by any authority. So before printing your Aadhaar PDF, you should make sure that the e-signature on your e-Aadhaar is displayed as signature valid.
So if your Aadhaar PDF is showing Validity Unknown with yellow-colored question mark icon then in this post we will be showing how you can validate the Signature in your Aadhaar.
Step by Step Tutorial on How to Validate Signature in Aadhaar Card PDF
To validate digitally signed Certificates/Permissions make sure you have Adobe PDF Reader Software Installed on your device, if not then you can download it for free from Adobe Website.
Once you have Adobe reader software on your device, just open the downloaded e-Aadhaar PDF File with the Adobe PDF Reader Software.
To validate the e-sign in your Aadhaar, just click on the e-signature.
This will open a new prompt called Signature Validation Status, just click on Signature Properties Option.
From signature properties window just click on Show Signer’s Certificate.
Verify that there is a certification path named ‘UNIQUE IDENTIFICATION AUTHORITY OF INDIA’. This identifies the UNIQUE IDENTIFICATION AUTHORITY OF INDIA as the owner of the digital certificate that has been used when signing the document.
Click on Trust Tab > Add to Trusted Certificates.
Acrobat Security window will display a message “If you change the trust settings, you will need to revalidate any signatures to see the change. By directly trusting the signer’s identity you are overriding all inherited trust settings. Are you sure you want to do this?”. So to proceed just click on the OK button.
Select all the check boxes in the Import Contact Setting Window and click on the OK button.
Again on Certificate viewer window screen hit OK and click on Validate Signature.
Once the certificate validation is executed , you will get the following approval
Note: – Once ‘UNIQUE IDENTIFICATION AUTHORITY OF INDIA ‘ has been as a Trusted Identity, any subsequent documents with digital signatures from UNIQUE IDENTIFICATION AUTHORITY OF INDIA will be validated automatically when opened.
