Any individual needs to enrol themselves for an aadhaar card. But the entire process of attaining the card may be taxing. To make the task easier, UIDAI has established the Aadhaar Self Service Update Portal (SSUP), a portal that allows a person to update their aadhaar details online. By visiting the Aadhaar SSUP portal, you can change all required information such as name, date of birth, contact number, email address and home address. However, a person can get only the basics updated online. As far as the other information like biometrics is concerned, a person needs to visit their nearest enrolment centre.

Key Feature of Aadhaar Self Service Update Portal

  • Aadhaar card can be updated online using SSUP Portal
  • You can update Demographic details such as your name, address, date of birth, and gender online
  • Mobile OTP Based Verifications.

Finding an identity for yourself is not just an existential question but also a requirement by law. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) mandated the Aadhaar Card as an essential piece of documentation. The Aadhaar card is a unique 12-digit numeric code establishing the identity of an Indian citizen or a Non-Resident India (NRI)l who has spent over 182 days out of 365 in the country.

A person’s aadhaar card contains their name, date of birth, passport size, photograph, gender, and aadhaar number on the front of the card. On the back, the card mentions the father’s or husband’s name with the house address and aadhaar number.

In this article, we bring forward the various ways one can make changes to their aadhaar. Let’s move forward to the hassle-free lands of updating the Aadhaar card through the SSUP portal, UIDAI or by visiting the enrolment centre.

Update Aadhaar Card By Visiting The Enrolment Center

A person can update their aadhaar card by going to their nearest enrolment centre. At an enrolment centre or Aadhaar Seva Kendra, a person’s biometric details, email address, and phone number are required on an application form.  

An individual can update their aadhaar card at the enrolment centre through these simple steps:

  • Enter the correct information in the aadhaar correction form
  • Add the required self-attested documents 
  • Submit the form with the fee charged by the centre

How Update Aadhaar Card Details Online?

Your Aadhaar card details can also be updated online, making the process easier and time-saving. The UIDAI self-service portal can be accessed to change the information by abiding the following steps:
