The Government of India started the initiate Unique Identification to recognize the Indian citizens among the immigrants, illegal immigrants, and imposters. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) institution developed in India to strengthen national security. Aadhaar card did not impact much during the first two years, but it became mandatory to link Gas connection, Bank account, Mobile number, and almost everything to Aadhaar.
However, the Government of India did not push link of Aadhaar card and Voter ID card, which is a surprise. Today, the planning division of Unique Identification Authority of India has improved the online services.
An educated man with basic knowledge can update the Aadhaar card in a few clicks, and you can update the details.
Remember, documentation knowledge is the key to acceptance, so make to sure call the UIDAI customer care to learn more. Rejection occurs when the applicant does not add supporting documentation or adding wrong documentation.
Aadhaar Self Service Update Portal Requirements
UIDAI allowed the cardholders to make changes in the past, and it would take a few days to reflect the changes. It was an excellent option that many people used in the past, and the newly printed card would arrive within a few days. The Unique Identification Authority of India removed all of them except the home address or permanent address.
- Keep the registered mobile number to your side because you are going to need it for OTP.
- Also, get a copy of the Aadhaar card or enrolment number so that you can find the applicant name in the database.
- An active internet connection required for the entire task to complete or else, the page might expire, and you have to start all over again.
- Get the right set of copies /documents to upload. Make sure the information printed on the document is visible properly, or the application will get rejected.
- I assume that you already know that UIDAI removed name, sex, age, gender, and DOB options have removed. You can change the permanent address only, and for correcting/changing the rest of the information, visit the nearest center.
If you have an incorrect date of birth on the card, and you want to change, then the nearest center can help you with it. Keep in mind that you can apply for the change only once. In case, if the second time fails, and it remains incorrect, then moves on to the regional office for correction.
Yes, the centers cannot help you for the second time, so you have to fix the issues in the first go, or else you have to make a few trips to the regional office. Also, check for the Aadhaar centers are available in the banks because the UIDAI decided to add a helpline center in the nearest banks.
