This card is in the size of a Debit card and can be easily carried in pocket and wallet. Because of this, UIDAI has discontinued the old-style card.

In response to user's query on Twitter, UIDAI tweeted, "Dear Resident, Order Aadhaar Reprint service has been suspended. You can order Aadhaar PVC Card online. At the same time, if you want, you can also take a print out of E-Aadhaar and keep it in the paper format.
