Access to Aadhaar Online Services requires a valid, registered mobile number.

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

Visit a Permanent Enrolment Centre to register your mobile phone number if you did not do so during your Aadhaar enrollment.

Allowing the use of Aadhaar for a wide range of purposes, including government and non-government services, subsidies, pensions, scholarships, social benefits, financial services, insurance services, tax services, educational services, occupational services, healthcare services, etc. , it's crucial that the resident's Aadhaar information in the CIDR is correct and up-to-date.

The necessity of updating demographic information may result from:

  • People's names and addresses often change as a result of major life changes like getting married. Due to relocation, changes in contact information such as address and phone number are possible. Life events, such as marriage, death, and others, can prompt residents to want to update their relatives' information. There may be other, more private motivations for residents to alter their contact information (email, phone number, etc.).
  • 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.
  • Mistakes made while enrolling residents could lead to inaccurate demographic data. Enrollment mistakes are the most common cause of updates to the "DoB/Age" and "Gender" fields.
  • Since a resident can enroll anywhere in India, it is possible that an enrolling operator who speaks language B will enroll a resident who speaks language A, making language B the resident's local language of enrollment. The local enrollment language may not be the resident's first choice, but that can be changed at a later date. If that's the case, the Aadhaar card's printed demographic data will need to be translated into the new language.
  • 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.

Reasons for wanting a biometric update could include:

  • 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.
  • The Aadhaar identification and verification service is rapidly expanding. Authentication failures (called false rejects - where a correct resident with a valid Aadhaar number may be incorrectly rejected) caused by incorrect biometric capture or poor biometric quality captured at the time of enrolment can also prompt residents to request biometric updates. Better quality biometrics capture in the CIDR may become possible as technology advances.
  • When enrolling or updating, UIDAI may perform a quality check on the biometric data collected. UIDAI may send out notifications to all citizens whose biometrics fall below a predetermined minimum.

These are the aspects of Aadhaar that can be modified:

Demographic information

Information Collected Includes: Name, Address, Birthday/Age, Gender, Phone Number, Email Address, Relationship Status, and Permission to Share Personal Data

Biological identifiers

Eye scan, fingerprint, and photo identification

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

Methods of Progress

Firstly, by means of the Internet

Address changes are available to residents through the Self-Service online mode, where users can submit requests for changes directly through the portal. To access the portal, a resident must enter their Aadhaar number and mobile phone number. The OTP is sent to the resident's registered phone to verify their identity. The resident's POA documents, uploaded as part of the update process, will be checked by a Verifier against the requested data at a later time in the Update back-office of UIDAI. In order to use this service, the resident's mobile phone number must be linked to their Aadhaar profile.


All fields related to personal information, including local language and photos, are editable.

Proof of Identity: Biometric Resident Authentication

Checking Paperwork

  • The areas requiring proof documents have been verified.
  • UIDAI-approved verifiers or 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

  • Executed by the operator on the resident's request via the update client After submitting an update, residents are given a confirmation receipt that includes a unique update request number (URN). 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 could make available an API or application for updating Those Registrars will be chosen for updates because they are a trusted source of information for that specific demographic.

Statistics: Statistical fields

To verify your identity, the AUA will use your biometric information; however, UIDAI reserves the right to employ other authentication methods. For updates requested via this channel, mobile OTP is one example.

The operator will require a biometric verification for any software update. That's why they need Aadhaar. The device or devices used will be subject to UIDAI's authentication standards.

Updates verified by Registrar and subject to Resident Authentication will be accepted by UIDAI. Electronic or scanned copies of documents may be collected online for auditing purposes. The Registrar may collect and store these copies alongside individual requests from residents, or they may be made available in batches in relation to Update Request Numbers, Dates, and Times.

Acknowledgement and Form Completion

  • Done by Registrar Operator(employee/outsourced) on Biometric Authentication-Capable Device, like a Micro-ATM Resident receives a confirmation receipt with a unique Update Request Number (URN) that can be used to monitor the status of the request. Depending on the nature of the request, you may receive a printed receipt in addition to an SMS or email confirmation. A text message sent to the provided mobile phone could serve as confirmation of a mobile number change. The application programming interface will be able to produce both electronic and printed receipts. After receiving a request to make an update, the Registrar has the option of providing printed receipts.
