People who have submitted their applications for Unique Disability ID Card (UDID Card) often ask about the status of their application. The applicants also say that they haven’t yet received their UDID Card. The next question that I all the time get is “when would I get my UDID Card?”. I am receiving so many such queries that I decided to answer all these questions in this article.
Well, first of all, let me make it clear that WeCapable is not associated with the UDID Card issuing authorities. Therefore I can not help you in getting your UDID Card. This is up to the authorities as to what action they will take on your application. Here on WeCapable, I only try to provide information about anything and everything related with disability. I am also a polio survivor — and I know what difference information can make in the lives of disabled people. That is why I am writing on WeCapable.
Having said that, the UDID applicants should know a few things regarding their application. Let’s see what these points are.
UDID Card is a Being Implemented in a Phased Manner
A person with disability can anytime apply for a UDID Card online. But your application will be processed by the state authorities only when your state will begin to roll out the UDID Cards.
For example, (as on 28 May 2018) Delhi has not yet started generating the UDID Cards. So, even if a disabled person from Delhi submitted application in 2017, she would not still have got her card.
As on 28 May 2018, as per the UDID website, only the following states have started to issue the UDID Cards:
- Madhya Pradesh
- Tamil Nadu
- Uttar Pradesh
If your state is among those where UDID Card generation has not yet started — you will have to wait until the process starts in your state.
I Haven’t Received My UDID Card. What can I Do?
First of all you should track the status of your application. If you go to Swavlamban website, you can find your application status using the Enrollment Number. This is the number that you must have received while submitting your application. You should check your email account and search for UDID. This should find the email sent by the system along with your enrollment number.
As shown in the above image, my application status is still just submitted (I had submitted my application in November 2017). This is because my state, Delhi, has not yet implemented the UDID project.
So, all this simply means that you can submit application anytime — but you will have to wait for the UDID Card until your state begins to work on it.
What if Your State is Generating UDID Cards But You Haven’t Got It
You should check the application status as explained above. If the status says that the card has been issued — but you still haven’t got it — then you may contact the Medical Board where your disability was evaluated. They might guide you who exactly to talk to find out what happened to your card. You may also speak with the Post Office of your area to see if they have your undelivered card with them.
I hope this information will help ease your anxiety over the UDID Card. While you wait for your UDID Card, you can still use your disability certificate for all practical purpose. Thank you for connecting with WeCapable!
