Sir You might be seeing a bit of ambiguity whether E-Aadhar is accepted or not as a Proof..Would suggest you to carry E-Aadhar along with any other Prescribed ID just for safety purpose.Show E-Aadhar first if not accepted then show the other one. Request you to share your experience here post your travel.
