UIDAI has made it simpler for people to get their Aadhaar card updated or corrected both online and offline. UIDAI recently announced that Aadhaar card holders will no longer need documents to update photograph, biometrics, gender, mobile number and email ID their Aadhaar cards. However, a proof of address will be required if applicants want to update or correct their address mentioned on the Aadhaar card.

The Self-Service online mode offers address update to the residents where the resident can directly place the update request on the portal. The Aadhaar number and registered mobile number of the resident are required to login to the portal. The resident is authenticated using OTP on his/her registered mobile number. To complete the update process, the resident needs to upload the supporting documents, which will be verified against requested data at a later stage at UIDAI’s update back-office by a verifier. The resident needs to have mobile number registered with Aadhaar for using this service.

  •  Visit the Aadhaar Self Service Update Portal
  • If you have valid address proof click on ‘Update Address’ else ‘Request for Address Validation Letter’
  • Enter your 12-digit Aadhaar number in the new window
