Updation of the mobile number registered with Aadhaar card requires biometric authentication and cannot be done by post or online. Therefore, those looking to update their mobile number registered with Aadhaar card need to visit the Aadhaar centre ('Aadhaar Kendra') nearest to them. This was said by the UIDAI or Unique Identification Authority of India, the issuer of the 12-digit Aadhaar number or Unique Identity Number (UID) as well as the Aadhaar card - on microblogging site Twitter. The UIDAI has, on its website, uidai.gov.in, hosted a facility that enables the public to search information on different Aadhaar centres. The UIDAI has also shared a link to this online tool.
