Aadhar Card is no longer a mandatory document for opening a bank account and taking up a new telephone connection. However, it can be used to avail a number of services and to verify various documents. Your Aadhar card should be linked with a mobile phone so that you will be notified about the status of the different services and access Aadhaar Online Services.
To continue with various services availed through Aadhar such as subsidy benefits, pensions, scholarships, social benefits, banking services, insurance services, etc., it is important that the data provided which includes phone number, email id, address is up-to-date. For example, in order to avail online facilities, an OTP is sent to your registered mobile number for authentication.
Life events such as marriage, job change, relocation to a different city are some of the reasons that may require an update on Aadhar. There can be other personal reasons as well. These changes call for a timely update. However, we postpone updating these crucial personal details as we believe that the process will be a tedious and time consuming. However, Aadhar card update is an extremely easy and you can update it through the Self Service Update Portal or by visiting the Aadhaar Enrolment Centre. To update your personal details by visiting an Aadhaar Enrolment Centre, you need to fill the correction form, submit it to the executive along with the necessary documents and pay a fee for the Aadhar card update. It may take up to 90 days for the update to take place.
A verifier working at the UIDAI’s back office will later verify the documents.
After submitting the correction form, the Aadhaar executive will take your photograph in the centre. You need to pay the small fee for the update. You will receive an acknowledgement slip containing the URN that can be used to check your Aadhar status. You do not need to submit any documents for updating your photo or submit any photograph.
As you must have seen that updating your personal data on Aadhar is easier than you thought. So, don’t wait for the last minute to update your data and do it as and when the need arises.
