Smart Aadhaar Card is basically Aadhar printed in a convenient form. The details of your Aadhar are printed as it is on a PVC Plastic Card. It is the same as your PAN Card. The look & feel is the same.
Smart Card Good to have?
E-Aadhar Card Copy downloaded from UIDAI web and printed on a simple paper even in black and white is as valid as the original card. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) cleared that there’s no idea like a plastic card or PVC Aadhar Smart Card.
The Cheif Executive Officer of UIDAI has been warned people to beware of any kind of fraud in terms of privacy protection and advised people to refrain from sharing the information to unauthorized agencies by any means. He also added to be watchful and don’t even go for laminated card no matter how authentic is the agency.
Duplicate or Original!
There is nothing called Duplicate or Original card. Both are same either you print it on Plastic or simple blank paper. Just printing your Aadhar card on PVC card is not that you can call it SMART. It basically duplicated your details. Laminate your original Aadhar card issued by UIDAI and use that instead.
Unauthorized agencies printing such info for Aadhar Card are going to be charged under criminal offense punishable with imprisonment underneath the IPC and, also, Chapter VI of The Aadhar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act, 2016.”

Advantage of Smart Card
Smart aadhar cards are basically just PVC Aadhar cards. I would recommend you take the PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or plastic Aadhar card. PolyVinylChloride or Plastic made Aadhar Cards is only the printed form of your Aadhar only on a plastic card and is considered as same as the copy of Aadhar Card, which may convenient to handle can be used as an identity card. It looks like a Credit Card.
Benefits at a Glance:
• Easy to keep in Wallet or Pocket
• No wear & tear.
• Essentially waterproof and therefore the likelihood of the cardboard being spoilt ar borderline.
• Strong, durable and will be in shape for longer run
There is no such need to waste your money on it. As it clearly stated by UADAI in a press release to avoid & it some kinda criminal to prepare & subsequently not legal, maybe to get as you are not abiding the laws of your country.
Simply Avoid!! My suggestion
