Aadhar Card Update and Correction | Check Aadhar update status (Updated 2018)

 The Aadhar Card is a single document issued by UIDAI that can be presented as proof of identification or address. It holds an individual’s personal information

Demographic Information: Name, Address, Date of Birth/Age, Gender, Mobile Number, Email Address, Relationship Status and Information Sharing Consent.

Biometric information: Iris, Finger Prints and Photograph of face only.

Aadhar card enrollment is a manual process making it quite prone to human errors. It is common that while processing millions of aadhar cards, mistakes are made in some of them or maybe there are some changes in your demographic information. Hence aadhar card correction or update is required. The conditions in which you are allowed to do updates are:

Demographic updates

  1. Life event changes like marriage, the permanent shift of address, mobile number update or email id change.
  2. If at the time of enrollment you did not provide a mobile number you can do it now with the update option
  3. Errors made during enrollment in fields like name or date of birth. These are very vital.
  4. Update to local language options.

Biometric updates:

  1. If the aadhar card was made for an infant when he reaches the age of 5 and 10 the UIDAI needs to revalidate the biometric.
