Aadhaar card number, the essential identity card of all Indians, can be easily updated if there is a change in the holder's name, address etc in simple steps online. You can also check the status of all such requests easily. All that you need to do is to log into the official website of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the body that is responsible for issuing Aadhaar card. Aadhaar is now mandatory to be linked with multiple essential services like permanent account number (PAN), bank accounts, public provident fund account, Kisan Vikas Patra, insurance policies, mutual funds etc. Basically, in order to keep using these services smoothly, one needs to link them up with his/her Aadhaar card number.
The last date to link Aadhaar with essential facilities is March 31, 2018, after the government agreed to extend it further.
