Aadhaar update may be required in some cases when the address has been changed, or if a correction is required in current details, or if you havenâ€™t used aadhaar for any transaction since the last three years and has become inactive, Hence, UIDAI has come up with a solution of updating the Aadhaar card details online.
There are three ways to do it:
Online updation of details
Requesting for update by post
Visiting a nearby enrolment center
Online updation of details like address, name, date of birth:
Go to the official page of UIDAI https://ssup.uidai.gov.in/web/guest/ssup-home#/
On aadhaar self-service update portal page, there will be a link that will ask you to proceed for address update or any other correction.
After proceeding further, a new page will open, which will ask for Aadhaar card number and text verification code. Enter the details and click on the â€œsend OTPâ€? button.
After entering the OTP details, proceed to the next page and select 'address.'
Click on the submit button that will take you to another page, asking for uploading documents with name and address proof.
Upload the soft copy of the scanned documents as proof of identity (name and photo) and address (containing name and address) to support the update request for submission. Select the BPO before the final submission.
Once the request is submitted, the aadhaar card update request number will be sent to your registered mobile number, which would be used for tracking the Aadhaar card status.
In case the documents do not match with the details, your request will be rejected and you will have to create a new one.
If the request has been approved by UIDAI, the updated aadhaar card will be sent to registered address by postal mail.
Requesting update by post:
Here are the addresses:
At Madhya Pradesh: UIDAI
Post Box no. 10
Chhindwara, Madhya Pradesh-480001
Post Box no.99
Banjara hills, Hyderabad
For updating the address via post, download the necessary form from the UIDAI website.
Check-mark the fields that require updates; then use capital letters to fill all the details. Make sure that you write them in English as well as the local language that had been used during the enrolment of Aadhaar. Remember that providing the mobile number is mandatory in either case - whether updation or correction.
Attach all the supporting documents required for updating the address and send them to UIDAI at one of the addresses mentioned below. Mention â€œAadhaar update/correctionâ€? on the top of the envelope.
Visiting nearby enrolment center:
Visiting the enrolment center has another provision of updating demographics like name, address, mobile number, date of birth, etc. as well as biometric information (iris, fingerprints). Original documents need to be carried along while visiting the center, which would be given back after scanning. After filling out the aadhaar correction form, attach the documents and submit them to the executive. UIDAI has now come up with three modes of assistance for this purpose, in which, document verification will be done at the same time when the request get placed.
Client Lite: In this mode, the demographic data, photo and language can be updated
Client standard: Here, biometric authentication gets done at the back-end itself, but the demographic data, photo and local language can be updated
Through AUA (Authentication User Agencies) presence: This mode is required to correct or update demographic data
In any of the above processes, either online or offline, the turnaround time for updation is 90 days. Once updation request gets approved after verification from UIDAI representatives, e-Aadhaar download can be done from UIDAI website, or else updated aadhaar will be sent to the registered address. Notifications will be sent to the registered email id and phone number.
