Aadhaar Online Services require a valid, registered mobile number.

The mobile number you provided during enrollment or the most recent update of your Aadhaar details can be verified.

A mobile phone number is required to be registered at a Permanent Enrolment Centre if it was not entered during the Aadhaar enrollment process.

Making it possible to use Aadhaar for a wide range of government and non-government services, subsidies, pensions, scholarships, social benefits, banking services, insurance services, taxation services, educational opportunities, occupational licensing, medical care, and more. , it's crucial that the Aadhaar information for each resident in the Central Identity Data Repository (CIDR) is correct and up-to-date.

It may be necessary to update demographic information because:

  • Marriage is just one of many life changes that can cause people to update their most fundamental personal information, like their name and address. Due to relocation, both your address and mobile phone number may change. There are many life events that can prompt a resident to request an update to their family member information, including marriage, death, etc. In addition, locals might swap out their contact info (phone, email, etc.) for more personal reasons.
  • As a result of shifts in service delivery mechanisms, citizens may need to update their declarations, add their mobile phone numbers to their CIDRs, etc.
  • It is possible that mistakes were made when enrolling the resident, leading to inaccurate demographic data. In most cases, enrolment mistakes will necessitate updating the "DoB/Age" and "Gender" fields.
  • A resident can enroll from any location in India, so it is possible for a resident who speaks language "A" to be enrolled by an operator who speaks language "B," making language "B" the resident's local language of enrolment. At a later date, the resident may wish to switch from the local language of enrollment to one of his or her choosing. If that's the case, then the Aadhaar letter needs to be revised to reflect the new language options for its recipients' demographic information.
  • UIDAI may decide to notify residents to update their demographic information and submit the required document after verifying the availability and quality of POI, POA, and other documents collected during enrollment/update.

The need for a biometric update might result from:

  • Biometric information should be updated every 10 years if a resident has been enrolled since they were 15 years old.
  • Biometric exceptions can be caused by things like accidents or diseases.
  • There has been widespread adoption of the Aadhaar identification and verification system. Authentication failures (called false rejects - where a correct resident with valid Aadhaar number may be incorrectly rejected) caused by incorrect biometric capture or poor biometric quality captured at the time of enrolment may also prompt residents to request biometric updates. Advances in technology could one day allow for higher quality biometrics to be captured in the CIDR.
  • The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) could set a minimum standard for the accuracy of biometric data collected during registration and renewal. UIDAI may send out notifications to all citizens whose biometric data falls below a predetermined minimum.

These are the aspects of Aadhaar that can be modified:

The demographics

Information Collected May Include: Name, Address, Birth/Age, Gender, Mobile Number, Email Address, Relationship Status, and Consent to Share Personal Data

Data based on biometric characteristics

Photos of your face, fingerprints, and your irises.

Numerous forms of Proof of Identity (PoI) and Proof of Address (PoA) are recognized by the UIDAI update procedure. Check out this list of files that support your claim.

Systems for Changing

Online, No. 1

In the Self-Service online mode, residents can change their addresses by submitting a request on the portal. To access the portal, users must enter their Aadhaar number and mobile phone number. The OTP is sent to the resident's registered phone to verify their identity. In order to finalize the update process, residents must submit supporting POA documents for verification against the requested data in UIDAI's Update back-office. In order to use this service, the resident's mobile phone number must be linked to their Aadhaar profile.

Using self-service Update Portal for online Aadhaar Data Update: Step 1 - Login to SSUP portal using Aadhaar and OTP, Step 2 - Select the fields to be updated, Step 3 - Fill the data in the selected fields, Step 4 - Submit the form & URN will be generated, Step 5 - Select the BPO for review of update, Step 6 - Attach original scanned copy of the support document, Step 7 - Using the URN check Aadhaar update status

To enroll permanently, step 2: go to an enrollment center

It's through these channels that locals submit their requests to have their personal information updated, usually at a Permanent Enrolment Centre. The operator will collect the necessary proof at the time of request acceptance. At the time an Update request is made, the verifier will also perform a document verification. To date, UIDAI has envisioned three different ways to perform Assisted Updates:

a Alter Client-Side Measures

All fields, including local language and biometric information, can be changed.

A biometric check performed in the background is used for identity authentication.

Verification of Documents

  • Cases where documentation was required have been verified.
  • A UIDAI-approved verifier or one of the onsite registrars will perform the checks.
  • The enrollment verification process should adhere to the guidelines set forth by the DDSVP Committee.

Method of Receipt: Form Completion and Acceptance

  • Took place via operator-requested client update Takes care of transliteration, grammar, and spelling issues, etc. Each update request made to the operator will be subject to a biometric verification.

An Update Request Number (URN) acknowledgment receipt is sent to the resident so that the status of the request can be monitored.

Biometric Update Process: Step 1 - Filling Application Form, Step 2 - Manual Verification of proof, Step 3 - Entry of Data into client software by operator, Step 4 - Biometric Authentication by Resident, Step 5 - Operator & Supervisor's Confirmation, Step 6 - Acknowledgement of Receipt


All fields related to personal information can be modified, including photos and regional languages.

Identification Verification: Biometric Resident Authentication

Verification of Documents

  • The areas requiring proof documents have been verified.
  • UIDAI-designated verifiers/onsite Registrars perform the checks at the Enrollment/Update Center.
  • The enrollment verification process should adhere to the guidelines established by the DDSVP Committee.

Acknowledgement and Form Completion

  • Completed by the operator on the client update system whenever a resident requests it. A confirmation receipt is issued to the resident, complete with a unique Update Request Number (URN) for future reference. Each request for an update will require a biometric signature from the operator.

c Keep up-to-date with the help of the AUA's POP!

Only a few Registrars who eventually join the AUA will use this system. UIDAI may make available a software/API for the purpose of Those Registrars will be chosen for updates because they are a trusted source of information for that specific demographic.

Domains: Demographic domains

Biometric Authentication of Individuals Residing on the AUA Device for Identity Verification; UIDAI Reserves the Right to Require Additional Authentication Factors Consider the case of mobile OTP for handling update requests from this channel.

For every request for an update, the operator will have a biometric signature on file. Therefore, they require Aadhaar. The used device(s) must comply with UIDAI's Authorization Guidelines.

The UIDAI will accept an update based on the Registrar's verification process and Resident Authentication. Electronic or scanned copies of documents may be collected online for auditing. It is up to the discretion of the Registrar whether or not these copies are recorded and received with each resident's request, or whether they are made available in batches against the Update Request Numbers, Date and Time.

Instructions for Completing Forms and Offering Approval

  • Processed by Registrar Operator(employee/outsourced) on Biometric Authentication-Capable Device (e.g., Micro-ATM) Resident receives acknowledgement receipt with Update Request Number (URN) that allows for traceability Depending on the nature of the request, you may receive a printed receipt in addition to an SMS or email confirmation. In the case of a mobile number change, for instance, a simple text message to the recipient's phone would suffice as an acknowledgement. In addition to paper receipts, the API can also produce digital ones. When updating requests are complete, the Registrar has the option of handing out printed receipts.
