There are two primary reasons why a resident might need to update the Aadhaar details online –

  1. To update Demographic Aadhar data,
  2. To update Biometric Aadhar data.

How to update Demographic Aadhar Data

  • Modifications in some life events like marriage might lead to a resident changing his/her basic demographic information such as address, name, and contact number.
  • A resident might also need modifications in his/her relative’s information due to a change in life event like death, marriage, etc.
  • There might be errors while enrolling because a resident’s demographic details might have been captured incorrectly.
  • A resident can modify the enrolled local language to some other, which he/she prefers. In such cases, all the demographic details printed on an Aadhaar have to be changed into the new language.
  • The UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) might also determine the availabilities of POI (Proof of Identity), POA (Proof of Address) and a few other papers collected during enrolling/updating the demographic details.

How to update Biometric Aadhar Data

  • A child is eligible to re-enrol for Aadhaar when he/she attains 5 years, provided that all his/her biometric details are submitted. This request is treated as a fresh enrolment request but retaining the actual Aadhaar number issued to him/her in Baal Aadhar card.
  • The resident must furnish all his/her biometrics as soon as he/she reaches 15 years so that the date is updated.
  • Events such as diseases or accidents can lead to biometric exceptions.
  • The UIDAI might validate the biometric quality captured at the time of update/enrolment and determine a threshold. A resident whose biometrics is below the defined threshold level might be notified to update them as soon as possible.
    For every change or correction that is made, a support document is required for proof. These are the two ways by which a cardholder can provide the necessary documents as proof–
  • Visit an Aadhar Enrolment Centre for Aadhar data update.
  • Visit the UIDAI website for Aadhaar data update online.

  • Yes it works. But the result may come anytime from 4 days to 4 months and there is no way you can follow up and find out the status. You keep getting the message ‘under processing, please check after a few days’, which doesn’t help. The help line is not helpful either.

    I prefer going to the nearby authorized center and get it done. I don’t mind paying Rs. 100. I have got the updated Adhaar in three days maximum, sometimes next day.

    I have got Adhaar cards updated for seven of my family members and this is my experience. I have used both online and offline (authorized center) methods.
