Curious about Aadhar
Yes, you can update your personal details in your Aadhaar card. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) provides the facility to update various details such as name, address, date of birth, gender, mobile number, and email ID. Here are the steps to update your Aadhaar card details:
1. Visit the UIDAI's SelfService Update Portal (SSUP) online at https://ssup.uidai.gov.in/ssup/.
2. Click on the "Proceed to Update Aadhaar" button.
3. Enter your Aadhaar number and the text verification code.
4. Click on the "Send OTP" button. You will receive an OTP (OneTime Password) on your registered mobile number.
5. Enter the OTP and click on the "Login" button.
6. Select the fields you want to update and provide the necessary information.
7. Upload the supporting documents as per the specified guidelines. These documents will vary depending on the type of information you are updating.
8. Review the details you have entered and submit the request.
9. After submission, you will receive an acknowledgment slip containing the Update Request Number (URN).
10. Keep the URN safe as it can be used to check the status of your update request.
Once you have submitted the update request, the details will be verified by UIDAI. After successful verification, the updated Aadhaar card with the revised details will be issued to you.
Note that certain updates such as biometric data (fingerprint, iris scan) may require a visit to the nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Centre. It is recommended to check the UIDAI website or contact the Aadhaar helpline for specific instructions related to updating personal details in your Aadhaar card.
