Aadhar update can be required in some cases, like if the address has been changed or if the correction is required in current details or if you haven’t used aadhaar for any transaction since last three years due to which it has become inactive, for which now UIDAI has come up with a solution of updating aadhar card either online where the person don’t need to go to enrollment center or offline.
There are three ways to do it:
Online updation of details
Requesting update by post
Visiting a nearby enrolment center
Go to 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 which will ask to proceed for address update or any other correction.
After proceeding further, a new page will get opened, which will ask for aadhar card number and text verification code. Fill the details and click on the “send OTP” button.
After entering OTP details, proceed to next page and select “address” which need to be updated.
Click on the submit button which will take you to another page asking for uploading documents having name and address proof.
Upload the soft copy of the scanned documents as proof of identity (name and photo) and address proof (having name and address) supporting update request for submission. Select the bpo before the final submission.
Once the request will be submitted, aadhaar card update request number will be send to your registered mobile number, which would be used for tracking aadhar card status.
Incase the documents will not match with the details given, your request will be rejected and you will be needing to create new one.
If the request has been approved by UIDAI, the updated aadhaar card will be send to registered address.
For updating the address via post, download this form from UIDAI website.
Checkmark the field first which is required for update proceeding then use capital letters to fill all the details and write them in English as well as the local language which had been used during the enrolment of Aadhaar. Remember providing mobile number is mandatory in either case of updation or correction.
Attach all the supported documents required for updating address and send them to UIDAI at one of the below address. Mention “Aadhar update/correction” on the top of the envelope.
Here are the addresses:
At Madhya Pradesh: UIDAI
Post Box no. 10
Chhindwara, Madhya Pradesh-480001
Post Box no.99
Banjara hills, Hyderabad
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 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 request get placed.
Client Lite: In this mode demographics, photo and language could be updated
Client standard: Here biometric authentication gets done at the back end itself but demographics, photo and local language can be updated
Through AUA (Authentication user agencies) presence: This mode is required to correct or update demographic field
In any of the above process either online or offline, turnaround time for updation is 9o days. Once updation request gets approved after verification from UIDAI representative, e-aadhar download can be done from UIDAI website or else updated aadhaar will be sent to registered address, if any updation has been done on mobile number and e-mail notification will be send there itself.
