Aadhaar Card Online Updation: Latest Changes You Need To Know

Aadhaar card online updation: Only address can be updated online or by post from October 20, says UIDAI


The UIDAI or Unique Identification Authority of India, the issuer of the 12-digit Unique Identity Number (UID) and Aadhaar card, has made some changes to the online tools it provides to Aadhaar card holders looking to update their basic details. Now, the UIDAI allows only address to be updated online or by post. Only address can be updated online or by post with effect from October 20, 2017, the UIDAI said on microblogging site Twitter. Previously, the UIDAI website also allowed changes to other basic details on Aadhaar card, such as name and date of birth. "All current update requests (submitted before 20th Oct 2017) will be completed as per standard process," the UIDAI noted.

Individuals looking to change or update details such as name, date of birth, mobile number and email address will now have to visit the 'Aadhaar Kendra' or Aadhaar centre nearest to them in order to make a request. This was said by the UIDAI on Twitter.

Aadhaar is the 12-digit personal identification number issued by the UIDAI. This number, known as UID or Unique Identity Number, is also printed on Aadhaar card, an identity card available in physical as well as digital form. "Aadhaar is a lifelong unique 12-digit random number assigned to a resident which is verifiable online anywhere anytime using the Aadhaar authentication platform," the UIDAI adds on its website.
