Any Aadhaar Correction Or Updates? Follow These Simple Steps To Make The Changes
There is no doubt the importance of Aadhaar has increased tenfold since the past year. Hence, any kind of spelling error or mistake in your Aadhaar could lead to problems for you.
Linking of Aadhaar and PAN is effectively mandatory for now & requires all your demographic details to match on both. Therefore, if there’s a mismatch, be it name, gender, DOB on either of the documents, you’ll be unable to link the two.
If you’re looking to update your Aadhaar, here’s how to do it.
As per UIDAI website, there are three ways to update or correct your Aadhaar card details:
1. Update your details online
2. Request update by post
3. Visit a nearby enrolment center
Individuals who have registered Aadhaar with their valid mobile number, only they will be able to update it online. Registering your mobile number becomes mandatory as the online transactions are OTP authenticated.
If you are using online Self Service Update Portal (SSUP) for updation, you can update your Demographic details (Name, Address, DoB, Gender, Mobile & Email). Make sure that your mobile number is registered in Aadhaar while using this service.
Login to AADHAAR card Online Self Service Update Portal using your Aadhaar number.
Submit your AADHAAR card name change / correction / surname change request online.
Scan and upload supporting self-attested Proof of Identity document (soft copy) for Aadhaar card name change/correction/ surname change online.
Once the name change/correction/ surname change request is submitted you will be given your Aadhaar card Update Request Number, which can be further used to track the status of your request.
Updating via post:
You could also update your Aadhaar via post, for which you need to download the form online.
Fill it out in English and the local language. Use the same local language that was used at the time of your enrolment in Aadhaar and appears in your Aadhaar Letter. Checkmark the field that needs to be updated on the top of the form.
Fill out the fields that require update/correction. Providing mobile number is mandatory for updation/correction in any of the fields. However, as per UIDAI website, providing email ID is optional.
Duly filled application form along with the self-attested supporting documents needs to be sent to UIDAI at the given address. Mark the envelope as “Aadhaar Update/Correction” on top.
