Deepak Dec 12, 2018 12:13 AM

I logged into the portal with my Adhaar number and OTP, but in the next page asking for User Details, I entered my name, age, mobile number, age and date of birth ( in the correct format as asked ), but I keep getting error message "Server Error in '/' Application" and sometimes I get another error message "user details do not match". I tried like 6-7 times and gave up.
Is this portal really working or typical government shoddy work??
