Step 2: The personnel will hand over an Update Form and you have to fill out the Aadhar Update Form
Step 3: Make sure that you enter only your current mobile number in the form – that is, the number that you want to change to in your Aadhar Card, not the number which is already mentioned there.
Step 4: Ensure once again that you have not mentioned your previous mobile number.
Step 5: In addition to that, you do not have to provide any proof to the personnel for updating your mobile number.
Step 6: Then, the personnel there will register your request.
Step 7: Make sure that you will be handed over an acknowledgment slip containing the URN after the registration of your request.

The entire process of the mobile update can again be verified after you get your phone number changed and then you can log in to the UIDAI website to download your Aadhar Card. There, an OTP will be sent to the mobile number now registered and that will come to the new mobile number that you have provided. If it doesn’t you might have to go to the Aadhar Enrollment/ Update Center again.
That being said, it is very important to keep in mind that Aadhar Card is one of the most important documents for an Indian citizen, and hence, it is your sole responsibility to safeguard your Aadhar card, else it might be misused by hackers who might steal your information.
