Aadhar card update/correction is the process where you already possess an aadhar card and would like to update your personal details on the aadhar card. Before going to see how you can change your personal info, let see the different scenarios where one will go for a correction.
- Incorrect Details: While applying for aadhar card, either the UIDAI department or you might have entered your personal details like name, gender, date of birth, address, mobile and email id incorrectly. In this case, you have to correct your details on the aadhar card.
- Address Change: Relocating house from one place to another place is a common scenario. If you have relocated to a new address, then you have to update the new address on the aadhar card.
Steps to Update Aadhar Card
To make corrections to your aadhar card, follow the below step by step process:
Login to the aadhar self-service portal: Visit the portal and enter your aadhar number. Then solve the captcha and click on the “send OTP button”. The portal will send a one-time password to your mobile. Enter this one-time password and login to the site.
Data Update Request: Here you have to select the personal information that you want to update. You can either update all or some of your personal details. You have to check against each of the personal info that you would like to change. For example, if you want to change your address and mobile number, then check these two boxes and click on Submit button.
In the next window, you have to enter your new personal details and click on the submit update request button. The next screen will display the details entered by you. Verify your personal details and check on the “I confirm box” and proceed to next step.
Documents upload: In this step, you have to upload scanned copies of documents supporting your personal details. In case, if you are changing the mobile number or email id, then you don’t need to upload any documents. An OTP will be sent to your mobile or email which you can use for the verification.
BPO Service Provider Selection: Karvy and Aegis are the two BPO service providers who verify the scanned documents and approves your new personal information. You can select any of these two providers. And then submit the update request.
After you have successfully updated your personal details, the UIDAI portal will generate a URN (update request number) which you can use to check the status of your aadhar card correction. Usually, it will take 2 to 3 weeks to make corrections on your aadhar card.
