"Mobile number is mandatory to receive a password for login," according to the UIDAI website - uidai.gov.in. This mobile number is the one registered at the time of applying for Aadhaar. Users can log into the Aadhaar self-service update portal and submit a request in three steps, the UIDAI portal added. These steps are: login with Aadhaar number, upload documents and select the service provider.
How to update Aadhaar card address
Visit the UIDAI website to find and click on the 'Update Aadhaar Details (Online)' tool. This tool can also be accessed through its link.
Enter your 12-digit Aadhaar number and click on 'Send OTP'. A one-time password (OTP) is sent by the Aadhaar system on the Aadhaar card bearer's registered mobile number.
After this step, enter the OTP received in the specified field on the portal and click on 'Login'.
On the next page, select address from the list and proceed.
At this stage, the user is required to fill in the new details.
"Ensure that your information is transliterated correctly in the local language. The English spellings in the local language boxes may be modified to get the local language spelling correctly...," according to the UIDAI website.
Check the details thoroughly and proceed.
At this stage, the user is required to submit the valid document supporting the requested correction. Users are required to upload original scan copies of the valid documents. "Upload only the valid documents to avoid update request from rejection," the UIDAI noted.
The system also displays estimated time required to process your request.
At the end of submission, a URN or Update Request Number is issued to track the status of application.
A similar procedure may be followed to make changes in other Aadhaar details (name, date of birth, mobile and email).
